It'd be really cool if all the dreadheads could write down what job they have without being discriminated! I think it would be very encouraging to see all the different possible jobs that are out there for dreadheads:) I know that the fear of not being able to find a good job is maybe that last thing holding some people back from getting dreads. I'm luckily self employed but before I was I used to work at a warehouse on a late shift and my employers had no problem with my hair as long as it was out of harms way. Only reason I quit was because it interfered with school:/ I know that you can get a job at Five guys, Zumies and Index Skate Shop with dreads but I want to know more! Thanks!

I work for a nationwide grocery store (Safeway on the west coast). I've been with the company for 5 yrs, dreaded for a year. There were some comments when I first ditched the brush and conditioner so I urged my dreads on by having them backcombed. After I did that nothing else was said.There is a girl with amazing locks that works at Joann's Fabrics near where I live as well.

well i always preffered bveing self employedd but when i wasnt i managed 200+ website designers for a non profit (at thd time) web host we were partnered with pbs (yea the tv network)

I work in a factory as a machinist (cnc) . My employer hired me when my dreads were a year old and still no trouble to this day for having them.

I am a Freshwater Ecologist/Hydrographer.... i basically get paid to act like a ten year old, i catch bugs and fish, build dams and fly about in helicopters looking at how much rain has been falling.... been at it about 9 years and have been dreading for a year now... again no worries with the dreads,there'sa few of us knatty folk running about... i deal a lot with kids and they think dreads areawesome, and it is amazing how well you can get along with the staunchest farmer here when you shock them withcompletelynormal no BS conversations.

I worked as a cook for Whole Foods for 5 years. Note to anyone looking to get a job there: be careful. It's a horrible company to work for. They tend to not care about their employees at all.

Now I am a full time student again. I'll be working for my co-op's 6 months a year. I'll let you know where they are
