    Dress for the job. Clean jeans and a polo shirt, if you're feeling snappy.

    We had a tour come through my hub on Tuesday - my PT sup and I got a giggle in at a jackass in a shirt and tie. You'll be slinging cardboard, not hobnobbing with Scott Davis.

    KY, tour at SDF? That's the belly of the beast. Disregard the talking points by HR/tour guide. What you see is will not match what coming out the mouth of the HR person. Advance search the 8 eight keys to lifting and lowering on this site memorize them, and during your tour observe how many employees you see following those methods.

    It's a hard job, don't show up looking soft. But don't show up looking like a bum or a gangsta either.

    That's all they hire here anymore. New guys that live in homeless shelters downtown. We lost one of our bathrooms near corporate a few years ago because we had a guy that would literally bathe in the sink, shirt off and all.
    Corporate used that bathroom and complained. Now it's sectioned off. It's become a joke seeing some of these guys they hire.

    based on the tour groups i've seen walking around lately i wonder what the percentage of new hires on parole/probation is....

    In my limited experience? I'd say about 5-10%, and that might be overshooting.

    To get higher numbers, a better question to ask would be how many of the new hires have been arrested on two or more occasions. I feel like the number would skyrocket close to 40% for that one, but that's not to say that I think most PTers are inherently bad people. :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: happens, people make mistakes. The problem lies with those that continue to repeat their mistakes instead of learning how to avoid them.

    I would advise also to wear your non slip shoes as well. It would be a bad start to things if you came across something wet, slipped and got hurt, or maybe it would be a good thing, who knows.

    I love when they bring the new hires around my boxline on tour. Its like the imates calling out " fresh fish " when they do that. I usally stop working, and give them " that look ". Also use the " welcome to hell " line every now and again. Ahh, memories.

    Dracula Package Car is cake compared to this...

    I would go with a tuxedo T-Shirt and a spinning bow tie. You'll fit right in.
