Read This If You Have Dyed Hair And Want To Work At Chick-Fil-A

Despite the many controversies surrounding it, Chick-fil-A continues to serve up its fried chicken and mac and cheese for hungry fans. Since the chain opened in the mid-1940s, Chick-fil-A has been stirring the pot as far as politics go.

However, if you can get past the politics, many claim Chick-fil-A is a pretty decent place to work. When Cosmopolitan interviewed an employee, she said it could be "really stressful," especially during the lunch or dinner rush. She also said that the restaurant offers flexible hours, and she really likes having Sundays off.

Yet, not just anyone can work at Chick-fil-A. "Our interview process focuses on the type of person you are instead of the type of employee," one manager said (via Reddit). As this manager explained it, the success of the chain comes down to employees that "understand our standards and enjoy the environment."

If you care to read the fine print, Chick-fil-A's employee guidelines are a bit more strict than the chain would lead you to believe.

Chick-fil-A values the natural look

If you're looking for a job in the fast-food industry, and you like to dye your hair or paint your nails, you can cross Chick-fil-A off your list of potential workplaces. One Redditor posted a photo of the chain's employee handbook, and there are a lot of things to unpack.

Employees are required to be clean-shaven, well-groomed, and sporting a natural look. The handbook includes phrases such as "neat and professional in appearance," "unnatural hair colors or eccentric styles are not permitted," "makeup must be subdued and worn in good taste," and "not to be distracting" (via Chick-fil-A).

In other words, no blue hair, blue nails, or blue lipstick. "You're not allowed to look different or express yourself," one Redditor commented. "A workplace shouldn't be able to tell you how to dress or cut your hair," someone else said. No wonder it seems many people are abandoning restaurant jobs.
