Okay, we are going over the edge here on professional dress code. In all my years in job coverage, briefings, meeting with plant management and even the NRC, the dress for success issue did not matter. What did matter and still does is the knowledge and experience of the person. I would much rather work with an experienced person in a t-shirt than work with a fool in a coat and tie.
Brett, You are missing the point. You can fool some people with the way you dress but you cannot fool anyone if you don"t know how to perform the job you were hired to do.By the way, I don't show up at work with holes in my clothing and flip flops. I still try to take pride in doing a good job. I have worked at more than 35 sites and have done 10+ outages at numerous plants, but if I can get paid better and can get better treatment from my employer and the plant management, I would wear a tie while covering CRD pulls. I would have to draw the line there because I refuse to wear a tie with SCBA.
While some may think that this dress code thing is a bit over the edge, I maintain that it is more important than most think. Look and act like a pro and you will silently demand that you are treated like one.
I don't want anyone to think I am shooting at them. I don't wear a tie to work or anything close to it. I personally don't judge anyone on appearance (or at least I try not to).
...not getting off the serious side here...but I remember a tech at Farley in the 80's that wore a different baseball uniform to work everyday...not just a shirt, and scrub pants...I mean the whole suit(Hat, pants. socks)..like he was gonna be pitching for the Yankees at breaktime....he didn't last long...he threw the RPM a curve ball in containment...ba da boom....
I think we need to look the look and walk the walk at all times. I came back after being out for 18 years and I was shocked to see some of the techs coming to training looking like they lived in their cars. Not shaved or even clean clothes. That makes a bad first impression to say the least...smelling bad too. They looked like boilermakers!
I haven't seen anything about tight jeans ...does this not happen anymore?..It was common in the 80's and 90's...but this is a new millinium and I am out of that arena........red
I keep my hair business length. I dress in a manner appropriate to the position I hold and the work I am doing that particular day. When I am office bound, I wear something along the lines of a nice pair of Italian dress slacks, a button-down oxford shirt, an Eddie Bauer sleeveless sweater, matching belt and wing-tips. On days when I am going to be briefing craft in a large group for an evolution in the can, I go a bit more casual. If I am going to be running around the aux. building covering a job, I may opt for jeans and a Hawaiian shirt with steel-toed sneakers. In the can, dress is the usual Barney suit.
Thanks Slo ... Nuke Gee Qioux ... Hmmmm ... We could have roving field reporters and photographers cover special events like "Wide Tie Wednesday" and "The Ugliest Jams Competition" ... I feel a magazine idea developing ...
