The Check Box System

The Check Box System consists of a 6 category breakdown for each company. Each of these categories can contain one of the check boxes listed below or will be left blank if no information pertaining to the category was submitted.

This check box stands for "allowed" or "yes".
This check box stands for "not allowed" or "no".

The Check Box System consists of a 6 category breakdown for each company. These categories are explained below:

Face This category covers facial piercings, but might also pertain to other non-ear piercings such as nape piercings. A green check box means facial piercings are allowed, the red check box means they are not allowed.
Ear This category covers all ear piercings. A green check box means ear piercings are allowed, the red check box means they are not allowed.
Tat This category covers visible tattoos. A green check box means visible non-offensive tattoos are allowed, the red check box means they are not allowed.
Hair This category covers unnatural hair colors. A green check box means unnatural hair colors are allowed, the red check box means they are not allowed.
Mgr This category specifies whether the policy will vary based on location and supervisor discretion. In this case, a green check box means the policy will vary. A red check box will never be used in this category.
EH This category specifies whether the employee handbook was referenced by the person submitting the listing. In this case, a green check box means the handbook was referenced for all or part of the submission. A red check box will never be used in this category.

The Check Box System uses the 6 categories listed above, but also includes a Details column which might include more specific details of a company's policy.

This section is for you, the readers, to let each other know of the body modification policies of businesses around the world -- sort of a database of places for the visibly-modified to try if they're searching for work. A directory of categories with explanations can be found in the lefthand column, visit these sections to browse the list of businesses. Also included in the lefthand column is an explanation of the Check Box System, please refer to this to understand the Check Box System used in The MM Employment Line Listings. If you have something to add to the details of a business already listed, please submit the information using the form below. Please be as accurate as possible with your submission. Also, if there is an exception to a normal policy (ie a specific location that does not follow the storewide policy on mods) please submit the exception to help make this database as accurate as possible.

Businesses/employers, if you would like to list a want ad here or would like to let me know of an error in your listing feel free to contact Modified Mind.

Disclaimer: This database is based on reader submitted information and is not guaranteed to be accurate. The policies of these businesses are subject to change and may vary from location to location. This database is just meant to provide a starting point for a visibly modified person seeking employment and does not in any way endorse any of the businesses listed here or claim to be quoting their exact policies. Just because a business is listed here does not mean they are hiring (unless it is listed in the form of a want ad).

I received the following e-mail and would like to comment on it:

this is stupid, its very inaccurat, most people are varied on the opinion of "mods". i work for two offices of the same company, one, my home office doesnt care about "mods" the other office is very strict against "mods". so getting yourself worked up because on branch of a company wont hire because of your "mods" is crap just grow up and try again

As my disclaimer already states: listings are not guaranteed to be accurate and may vary by location within the business. I also want to point out that this database is not here for the purpose of "getting worked up"...it is here, again as my disclaimer already states, to provide a starting point for someone with visible mods to find a job. Knowing of companies that are more open to bodyart might make the process of finding a job easier. It is a shame in general that companies discriminate based on bodyart, but I think most people realize this problem and don't need to "grow up" in the way that this message suggests. I think this database is a way to "grow up" in that it allows the modified community a starting point to search for employment with a list of possibly more open-minded companies who will allow them to be the responsible adults that they are.

The Modified Mind Employment Line has no hiring or employment placement oriented affiliation with any of the businesses listed and is not an employment placement agency.
