Pretty terrible. I was actually a little offended. That's not easy to do.

And that comment section... I need a shower.

One day I'll relate my experience conducting job interviews for an electrician's apprentice. I was horrified by the millennials that came looking for work. Their general appearance, lack of personal hygiene, lack of respect, and sense of entitlement was enough for me to give up and just hire another experienced worker. It's a shame because an experienced electrician can easily earn $20-40/hr pretty much anywhere in the country. It's just a matter of investing time and effort in learning, but nobody is going to try and teach a know it all kid who will just end up hurting himself on the job.


I don't see how their general appearance matters for a job about skill and knowing what you are doing.

Were they dress in a clown costume?


They may as well have. You don't go for a job interview looking like you just dragged yourself out of bed and grabbed the first items of clothing you could reach. If you can't be bothered to make yourself look presentable, It's doubtful that you would put any effort into your work as well.


That more of a personal pet peeve than anything else. Yes you are the one recruiting, so you make the rules but that more a opinion than anything else. Witch is fine I guess.

Uh...do they REALLY not understand "Blue Lives Matter" that much, or are they just trying to be reducto ad absurdum funny?

I think a majority of employers would feel the same. It's just common sense to dress up a bit if you are looking for a job. It's shows that you have a bit of interest in getting hired.

Ah no. It depends in what job you want man. That more of a opinion again. Some employers could not give a rat ass how you dress. I know I seen people dress really really stupid for a job. I even have secretaries dress really questionable when I been to the dentist or some other thing. Also some people have not clue how to dress for anything. It will be better if you tell them to comeback better dress if they really want the job. That would really indicate they are serious about it. Like I say your the boss and you make the rules.

The rule I always heard is dress one level above what you would wear while working at that job. Blue collar/service work should interview in business casual. Office work should interview in a suit. I once interviewed for a job waxing floors, but I still wore my best khakis and polo shirt. It just seems like a no-brainer.

I like the way they bring up mansplaining, because only white males do it and not males of other colours.

Mansplaining, not manspreading.

Yep, on most job sites you can dress like a slob, but when you are looking for a job at least make the effort to sell yourself a bit. A lot of people are looking for jobs these days, and your are all competing for the same spot... Do every thing you can to impress. Even if you don't get the job, if you made a good impression, they may hang on to your resume and give you a call if another position opens up.

The add is not racist, and the responses are not logical. Having your privilege challenged is not the same as racism.


Racism (Noun) 1. - a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.

2. abusive or aggressive behavior towards members of another race on the basis of such a belief

It is racism and you are racist. Have a nice day.
