should employee's be allowed to have piercing;
as long as the hole isnt 3 in round like some of these yo yos
If they have multiple in each ear I would say no, but if they just have one or two then they should be fine. Though they still would have to look professional.
thats really the last thing I worry about when hiring someone.
I could give a crap if a dude has earrings in his ears while mowing. Hell, I had 3 earrings until I was 25 years old. The kicker is I am a teacher. I didn't wear them to work but that was only because it is a professional job. I wore them 100% of the time I wasn't working though. Now I am 32 and wish I could get rid of the little holes that never go away.
the only ones that bother me are the nose piercing and the labray(sp), my opinion is if ya dont like it, dont hire them
That's the bottom line ... if they don't present the dress code or pre-defined appearance that you have established for your company, then don't hire them !!
I will not hire anyone with excessive piercings or visible tatoos. I just don't think it looks professional. I wouldn't even give my brother-in-law a job because he has tatoos covering both arms.
I'm no fan of body art.
Absolute best guy I ever had working side by side with me had hair to his butt and tattoo sleeves (including: pentagrams/nudes/skulls) on both arms.
Didn't project the most professional appearance but he was reliable and dedicated to a point of scary. Never complained, plenty articulate, and quite good at communications with customers. When I walked out every morning he had the truck running, everything greased and gassed ready for action, I hated losing him but he found a job with insurance. Gave me 2 months notice too.
Might not have picked him from a crowd but I'd seen his work. We didn't lose anyone the season he was with me.
in my business we strive for professionalism and quality; and looks do matter; we now have a majority of the business in town and still growing; lately seems like all we get is bums with holes all in them looking for jobs that all claim they worked in lawncare business; of course they say that; lol; so i just asked the ??? on here to see what the REAL lawn care service guys say about it;
