So i recently moved to Fort Myers FL and got work at a shop that very recently just opened its doors so no clientele base no establishment in the area. I went to find a part time job on the side so i apply at dollar general with the aid of a guy i know that already worked there said i was a shoe in so i get all nice and dressy take the rings outta my lip put in some classy white solid plugs and go talk to the manager now mind you the guy i know already talked to the manager and she told him she would hire me on the spot if my application was good so she didn't even look at the application told me she had already hired two people the day before knowing i was coming in the next day. so i leave a lil pissed so the next day the guy goes into work and is told by the manager that i came in with lip rings in and that's why she told me what she told me she didn't actually hire anyone for the position. Now i have no tattoos on my arms my ears are at 9/16th and i have snake bites. now for her to see the holes in my lip and deny me a job is fucked up rite? or am i just like over thinkin this whole thingYell

No, it's not right, but it's bound to happen.
I have 6 lip piercings and have been denied jobs because of them more times then I want to count.
Sorry, but it just comes with being modified.
People are afraid it brings a 'Bad Image' to their store. :/

I take mine out for every job interview I go to.
It doesn't change anything.
I always get turned down.
Just gotta find the right place.

my fiance mentioned about jobs and stuff while being modified. if there are warehouses and stuff (which usually pay more anyway) you can probably get away with it. i pierced his lip, he has 3 visible tattoos. one on his finger and words going across his knuckles. and the symbol for mercury on his lower arm. i gave him a rainbow Mohawk and they still didn't care. he has gauges and other ear piercings.

look for a place like this :)
