The wonderful world of Disney
Disney Co. announced today that it would be “loosening grooming rules” for employees who work at its multiple theme park locations.
I always thought the “disney culture” was a bit freaky. The “Disney Look”has always been nonnegotiable and strictly enforced. Friends of mine who worked at Disney retold horror stories of being sent home for not wearing hosieries in 99 degree weather.
Other ‘grooming requirements’ include: Fingernails may not extend more than a quarter-inch beyond fingertips. No more than one ring per hand is allowed, except for wedding sets. Necklaces and bracelets are prohibited. Men must have conventional haircuts. Beards, mustaches and sideburns beyond the ear lobe are prohibited. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets and visible tattoos are forbidden.
Would you work for a company with such appearance specific regulations?
