I have no idea, but from what the thread talks about, you should probably take them out. Do you really want to conform like that?

After re-reading this thread I would say you would want to go in looking as close to their current employees as possible to maximize your chances of being hired.

Interesting read, thanks for sharing. I don't think other races understand the difficulty black people have when it comes to hair maintenance.

Though I must say, as a man and potential customer, I take exception to some of these standards:

Quote:
Myself and most of my coworkers altered the curl patterns of our hair through dyes and straightening tools and/or products; kept our buttocks and hips in check as to not get “too” wide or round; many of us augmented our breasts
I like big butts and I cannot lie; you other brothas can't deny. If I was at hooters and the girls had some nice bubbles to match what they had up top, that would be far from a negative. Hell if I was the manager, I'd say ditch the implants; if they want to go up a cup size, screw the "healthy" shift meal and fill out that uniform the old fashioned way with some beer wings.
