Employees will be required to submit to a drug and/or alcohol test under the following conditions: after a work-related injury, any accident which results in damage to company property or company vehicles, or reasonable suspicion of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Pre-employment and random drug tests are necessary and conducted on a job specific basis. Refusal to submit to a test or a positive test will result in termination of employment.
We know that departments, locations and positions are all different and the details for distinct operating groups may vary, including personal grooming and how you dress. No matter who you are or what you do, that first impression is always important. To be at your best, follow your location or department’s dress code, and talk with your Supervisor about any specific presentation requirements for your job.
These are the basic presentation expectations. If you come to work violating the policy listed below, you may not be permitted to start your shift. If due to a sincerely-held religious belief or disability you are not able to meet the standards and/or would like to request an accommodation, please contact Human Resources.

Your uniform is to be worn only while you are working and should not be worn off the premises after working hours. Your uniform must not be worn while shopping in retail stores, in bars or restaurants, or while consuming alcohol, while on your free time. If using a meal voucher, the employee may be in uniform but must get the meal to go and eat out of public view.
