    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Just shave is it really that big of a deal?

    Dec 25 you can start growing a new one.

    Do you think it will be an issue if I have a beard at orientation, or no?

    Hard to say. I bet if you do, you are put at the very bottom of the list, though.

    Is it worth taking the chance?

    In our building the men need to be clean shaven for orientation. It's posted on the interest list. So I'd have to say yes. Shave

    But what about his building? Lol

    I love when people only listen to the comments they agree with. There could be 50 shaves and 1 you'll be ok and the op would be like sweet thanks man.

    I did orientation last week and yes, people had beards. The thing is, you're being hired from the outside, I assume, and you should make a good first impression.

    What's the big deal anyway? I had a beard and I shaved it off before orientation. I'm sure your girl will be okay with having a clean shaven man for a couple months.

    If I was a girl it would sure beat a bearded broke unemployed man.

    Yeah they said I would not be needed until Black Friday. Thanks for the advice guys, I've decided to wait to shave.

    Next question, do you think he'd report me if the driver I was helping saw I had a beard?

    Does it matter what we say? Depends on the driver.

    Lol like I said 1 person says you'll be ok and the op listens to that 1 reply.

    Serious question why did you even apply?

    Yet another helper that thinks they are above the rules. Shave. If you were assigned to me I would send you on your way because you need to be clean shaven. Also leave the jewelry (piercings) at home. You are to look professional. You are not only representing UPS but yourself. Grow up and be part of the real world.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    There is no need to shave for orientation.

    You will need to shave before you go on road.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    You try to work here with that attitude right off the bat...and UPS will test the minimum boundaries of your paycheck.
