But...What is that job Change? :)

I'm a bar tender currently. I also have worked at a summer camp as an arts and crafts director and at a liquor store. Oh...and got a job as a cab driver, but the hours they needed me for didn't mesh with my bar tending job at the time...so I never actually worked a shift.

Oh! and I was working as barista in a locally owned, organic, hippie, downtown college town coffee shop when I stopped brushing. :)

As soon as I acquire a vehicle I'll begin the search for a job that pays more and preferably has benefits. I would like to work for a credit union. I've been keeping note of the way I see the tellers and desk workers typically dressed and the other day I asked if there was a specific dress code that would require me to remove piercings or possibly have dreads. :)

Totally. Also, i'm sure that with dreads it might be more acceptable at small businesses than larger corporations?

Although...I work for a corporation and so does Mons, so of course that's not universal.

Oh...and a personal philosophy of mine is that if a company won't hire a person who has dreadlocks, I boycott them and take my money else where.

A locally owned coffee shop/breakfast restaurant that is across the street from a Food Co-op told a friend of mine that they wouldn't hire her unless she either combed out her dreads or cut them off. I lived a 5 minute walk from them for 4 years and never even stepped foot in their door.
They didn't want my money anyway. :D

My niece had dreads for awhile and worked for LUSH, had a management position. They defiantly hire dreadies. I myself am an artisan and do art shows, so mine fit right in.

I am a male nurse now. Nobody had any issues when I told them I was getting dreads. They made fun of me though lol. My overall goal is to have my own brewery. Me and my best friend have been brewing the last three years hoping to take to market within the next 5 years

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 was a CNA in Kansas. My residents didn't like them when I took them down, lol, but since they were always up, nobody else minded.

There was a dreaded nurse in that worked in the postpartum maternity ward my daughter and I were at.
Her's were definitely natural. :)
