    Hello, I'm currently employed with UPS Freight as a Journeyman Mechanic.
    When I was hired I was told that I had to shave my beard.
    In the last year I have heard talk that it's up to each terminal to enforce the no beard policy, I have also heard that the policy only applies to drivers?
    My terminal just hired a driver a few weeks ago and they allowed him to have a beard.
    Any help?

    Call up HR and get a facial hair variance form, take it to your doctor and have them fill it out completely. You will have 2 weeks to have this done after they send it to you. This is how I did it and I also work at the freight division.

    You must be one UGLY M'fer if it takes a beard to make you look better.

    Extremely ugly, I terrify my customers with this ugly mug, facial hair is the only way they can stand me.

    Mr. McCormick you have forever been labeled a "trouble maker" by management. Never use your real name on a web forum.

    So what did the doctor put down on the form?
    That you can't shave because of dermatitis?
    Just curious?

    Yes, with a maximum beard length. He choose 1/4 inch maximum

    I’m not even allowed to have red wings that aren’t dark brown. Good luck
