Mandatory uniforms?

Recommended Posts

We have a strict dress code in my shop with regard to uniforms and grooming. We supplies uniforms that are cleaned by a service, and we also issue T shirts in the summer and sweat shirts in the winter, along with a jacket. The T shirts and sweat shirts are theirs to keep and we give them new ones each year. For years this has worked fine.

 

Now, it seems that some of the younger techs lose their uniforms. They come in wearing their own shirts and jackets. And it is real annoying. We are now in the process of making everyone change at work and keeping all the uniforms in their lockers. We also issued a memo to all explaining company policy. We give them an inventory count and explain why this is important.

 

Is this an industry issue? If so, how do you deal with this? I dont know how everyone feels about this, but I think it makes a difference, from the customers perspective, if everyone is in uniform and well-groomed.

      Just curious if anyone if anyone is using Cintas for shop uniforms and if you like their service. Are you getting rags from them also? What's the typical cost?

Thanks guys. David

      Hello all,
       
      We are in the process of obtaining uniforms for the techs and choose to go about purchasing them on our own rather than through a company like Cintas due to excess costs.
       
       
      For those of you who do the same, do you hold a certain amount from the first pay check in the event the shirts are not returned?
       
      How would you handle something like this?
       
       
      Thanks in advance for your thoughts and opinions.
       
      Regards,

      Just curious if anyone makes their employees pay for their uniforms (pass along the cost of uniforms to your employees). Thought never really occured to me but a customer had mentioned his company makes him pay for his uniforms (works for a sewer plumbing company). $15 a week he pays.
