So UG, today I got a job as a christmas temp in Argos. YAY............................

I noticed when I was waiting for the interview they had a list of rules regarding dress code/appearance and what not. One of the rules was that male employees MUST be clean shaven which leads me to a bit of a problem...

It is very difficult to clean shave my facial hair even when using a hair trimmer AND a razir. Even if i was to manage it... it grows back in pretty noticably within a few hours, sometimes less.

THEREFORE: Could this potentially be an issue?
Its not exactly my fault I have retardedly quick growing facial hair is it now?

So bring a razor with you? Not very hard.

If you turn up clean shaven growing stubble during the day ain't going to lose you a job.

Do you have any idea what shaving four times a day would do to your face?

I thought the thread was going to be about something a lot better than this. =/


*grabs coat and top hat*

I say, good-day to you sir!

On Topic, it really depends on 2 things: your manager, and the company policy on facial hair.

Electric razor. Copious amounts of lotion. Problem solved.

What they mean is, they don't want any substantial man fuzz.

Man fuzz which has grown throughout the day is fine, even if it borderlines 'substancial', if it is what you make it to be...

Dude I'm pretty sure when they say clean shaven they mean don't have a huge beard. I'm sure they aren't going to care about a 5 o clock shadow.

do the first part, frankly it's disciminatory they can't tell you what to they can only advise you of what they would like to see, if you get fired for having a beard sue their ass to hell for discrimination just because you want to have facial hair

lololololol


It's not like they would be refusing to employ him because he's black. It would be refusing to employ him because they want employees who look presentable and nondescript. That's not fucking discrimination.

the options are, shave or don't take the job.

Unless you've got a real reason for not shaving then you have no chance. And by real reason I mean, religious or medical. And if you say religion it has to be an officially recognised religion and you'll have to show evidence of that. Otherwise they'll basically laugh at you and tell you make sure you don't leave any of your things on the way out.

Clean shaven usually just means no mustach or beard (when we're talking about men ) so don't worry; when companies request this it's either a sanitary thing or an image thing... those stubbles are not going to fall out or present you as being unprofessional. If you really want to stay spiffy just bring a rechargable electric razor... any more about this and your just being stupid.

Your boss will see you clean and presentable in the morning and realize on his/her own that you have heavy growth that has nothing to do with being a slob.

seriously, they're not going to moan. If they do, they'll only tell you to shave at which point you say "I did, this morning. it just grows really quickly. I'll take a picture tomorrow morning with the paper just to show you I've shaved in the morning"

They're not going to sack you on the spot.

well if that was where i live it would be different one guy got €10000 for being fired and being given the nickname "say what" only because other workers couldn't understand him, he lost the money in the end because the the reason he was fired was justified

Er... duh? Of course he lost the money if it was actually justified?

so essentially he sued them for being bullied, and then lost on appeal.

how is this relevant?

But it didn't end up with a massive payout... because he lost.

Not really, considering he didn't get the payout because he wasn't fired for having a funny accent.

And it's completely irrelevant anyway. Employer asks you not to look scruffy. You continue to look scruffy and customers don't like it. You are fired. Such is life. Deal with it.

omg dude i just started as a christmas temp at argos
its well good working there but i had a similar problem, they didnt like the spiked eyebrow bar i wear but i cant take out my piercing or it will heal so now i try to hide a retainer i bought which is clear and barely noticable

anyway yeah i would just shave to be on the safe side cos its a nice place to work.

Most places seem to treat facial piercings the same but don't care about ear ones

I guess i'll find out on thursday at my induction day

Either you can shave and have the opportunity to make some cash or sit at home with your scruff.

The choice is yours. If you don't take it, somebody else gladly will.
