Just so you'll at least somewhat fit in wear a medium blue shirt with khaki pants (definitely no jeans). Don't wear tennis shoes. If you have shoes that are brown or black in shade but made my someone like Nike, New Balance, Sketchers, etc.. those should be OK as long as they're in decent condition. But don't wear white athletic shoes. And no, they don't supply you with a shirt -- or, at least, they don't have to. However, they may have a polo shirt left over from a while back when the stores did supply the employees with shirts.

I would recommend wearing a blue shirt with a collar.

As the previous poster mentioned, no jeans, no shorts and no tennis shoes (at least not white).

It totally depends on who the store manager / district manager is on whether or not you can get away with wearing white tennis shoes. I'm in a district where they would send you home if you did that.

Yes i've heard of Managers sending folks home for disobeying dress code("cough" Shorts. "cough") But i doubt they'd do it to someone new on their first day if they hadn't had the forsight to go over it with them.

I think a nice white blouse with black or navy slacks -pressed with clog work shoes-black should be ok. Basic business fashion !Good luck and dont forget to bring your smile !

Has anyone heard who the new supplier is that we are supposed to order our uniforms from if we are in Asset Protection, Facilities Management or Data Terminal Repair?

I think red boots-with black slacks-and a blue tank top works for me in the summer.

red jump suits with blue trim might be nice for new uniforms- silver flats or loafers -should add some pizazz.

I wear whatever non-jean pants I want, a blue polo style shirt, any shoes I wish, and my name tag. As long as you are friendly to customers, give obvious hints you work there, and are helpful to customers, you should be good. Unless your manager is a "by the book" type. In which case...put in a transfer.$7.50 an hour is not worth you spending $200 on new clothes. Just apply to the Pharmacy. They work equal to or less than you and make more.

Depends. But typically if it follows basic dress code guidelines, then it's fine.

No.
I could only see a management level employee getting away with it.

I find it completely sexist that as a male sfl I'm required to wear vest, dress shirt and tie.
Then I see a female sfl and all the way up ths hierarchy wearing vest and a third shirt!

Women in the workplace will always feel sexist. Your job is fairly physical, and I don't see any females willing to: climb ladders, lift heavy boxes, throw totes in the back of the warehouse truck, etc. And yes they get away with just about whatever they want in the uniform policy, as you pointed out. They get paid the same, for doing less. But there's nothing you can do about it, the minute you complain or give a female employee a cross look, you'll be fired. As one former manager told me, "pussy rules".
Yeahright

CallAsm you sound like a very immature person! lol or the women you have worked with have been able to out smart you and have you do all the physical work because you were dumb! Sounds like they are working harder at getting you to do all the work !A smart Leader would know how to get everyone to function as a team and share the responsibilities unfortunately some people have been put in the wrong positions in this company!

I worked for years on overnights. I climbed the ladders, put the repacks up and got them down, I load the totes now into the truck, and so do all the females I have worked and currently work with. There is a total of 3 males in my store. If it needs done, we do it. If you let your people get away with that, it's your own fault.
