    Default OT; Cut my hair? FUCK YOU!!!

    so just been offered a (tele sales) job in basingstoke, had to endure a 3 stage interview process, and being told by the agency that i applied through after each stage, "loads of potential, they really like you" etc... which kept me thinking 'well stop interviewing and give me the job!!'

    anyway, got a call back today about it and was offered it on the basis that
    a) i don't wear black shirts, only white - which is fine as i bought a couple of white ones on sunday and..
    b) i get a hair cut and loose the 'emo-esque' fringe. FUCK THAT!!

    if i have the potential and ability they want then why let it be an issue now? why not address that earlier instead of waste my time!?!?! also yesterdays interview was cut short because the woman booked a meeting at the same time WTF!?

    anyway, told the agency if they want me they hire on ability, not appearance, could be the best dressed and tidiest person in the world, but completely shit at the job. appearance doesn't equal ability

    WTF? Now I've actually been to Amazingstoke recently and they've got far bigger problems to worry about than haircuts, like the amount of fucking concrete everywhere

    Tell 'em you've got a mate who works for the local rag and they love printing ridiculous shitty stories like this on a slow news day

    Or tell them that you will cut your hair, get a millimetre trimmed off at the barbers, and post the trimmings to them with the receipt

    Or: get anyone you know who is an employer to ring the agency and try and get them to send job applicants who only wear black and have long emo hair

    Just tell 'em that you'll be smart, presentable and good at your job if they employ you, but you won't debase your core values by cutting your hair because your employer has a warped idea of what 'smart and presentable' means.

    Tell them that in an ideal world, adopting this position makes you an ideal employee, and that them revising their position makes them the ideal employer.

    Sorted.
