Josh seems to be rather… fragile still. Maybe he will admit that Cooper was right if he can’t find the policy manual? This could be fun, folks!
Give it up Josh! There’s nothing wrong with wearing jeans for stock room work!
Made him look!!
I thought Josh had The Handbook memorized! Heehee!
Maybe he only has the important stuff memorized like on floor things and where any customers will be.
Maybe Josh should help out for a bit and see how long it takes for him to notice dirty pants.
I did a new (certain office supplies) store setup a year ago and found that my (medium shade) blue jeans never seemed to look dirty even after five days yet when I wore my tan cargo pants one day they showed dirt/dust very easily anytime any part of the pants touched the floor.
When I worked at Best Buy I had to wear khakis while on the floor. If you worked in the stockroom you could wear black trousers but not jeans. So for the few shifts I had to work in stock I bought a cheap but sturdy pair of black canvas workpants. I swear lint and dust just would not stick to them. (Cat fur, on the other hand…)
In some policy manuals I’ve read, I would often see paragraphs that states an employee who violates dress code can be sent back home to change into something appropriate.
I dare them to try that on a Friday or a weekend in the middle of December. Your move, management.
Didn’t Marla already say that she was ok with Cooper wearing jeans on stock days?
Yeah she did.
So many places I’ve worked for have strict uniform policy, but the clothes you’re expected to wear last minutes when used in reality.
When I worked at Sears 15 years ago I was allowed to wear jeans whenever I worked in the stockroom, which was every saturday when i changed end caps for on sale items.
I see no reason why, as long as they are clean(At the start of the shift anyway) and not full of holes or otherwise sloppy looking,what material pants were made out of anyway. Especially in retail. At the drugstore I work there is no “only working in the stockroom”, we run in and out of stockroom all the time, clean up spills, handle chemicals for the photo lab, vacuum, and get on our knees on cheap, rough carpet. Even when we were on register the whole time(Which is rare), the customer only sees us from the waist up! Some managers would let us get by with black colored jeans, but some insisted on dress pants. The dress code reads, “No jeans”. But even with, a uniform shirt with the company name on it, dress pants, name tag and usually doing some clear store related tasks, I’d still get a, “Do you work here?”
Wonder where Ron hid the policy manuel? Cooper’s Lounge? Or maybe he simply threw it in the cardboard compactor?
Maybe Josh will crawl into the cardboard compactor to look for it and have an ‘accident’. I know if I had to work around him he would sooner or later he would have an accident.
Traditionaly, I think jeans were made for workers because the sturdy denim offered protection and could withstand the forces of hard work.
How has it come to this that a product created for working like jeans can’t be worn to work anymore?
When image became more important then efficiency, or perhaps when retail started trying to pretend they are as high brow and clean cut as corporate try’s to be.
When the customers start demanding “high end” and “professional” atmosphere, that’s when the dress code changes. It’s old people who demand that they be catered to, regardless of circumstances.
I’ve ruined several good pairs of pants and nice dress shoes over the course of my retail career. If I’m walking the floor, I’m fine with appearing business casual (shirt with a collar, clean shaven, shirt tucked in, belt, etc). When I’m working stockroom or cleaning, I absolutely cannot stand abiding by the same dress code.
Dress up in a red shirt, kakhi pants and go to Target. Walk around until you hear “Do you work here?” Record your time.
I’ve always wanted to do that and just respond: “I’m not on the @#$ing clock, you @#$ !”
I get that whenever I wear my red down vest at Home Depot. I usually answer “well, I don’t work here, but maybe I can help you.” I’m a librarian. It’s in the blood.
