• Expand piercings allowed in dress code!!!
    I know many partners that wear retainers to make their piercings invisible at work, or even had to take their piercings out when they started their jobs at Starbucks. I believe this negatively affects partner morale, as well as contradicting Starbucks' reputation as a highly open and accepting company. Self expression is to me, a vital part of barista culture and I would love to see Starbucks expand their celebration of this. Hiding my septum piercing at work to adhere to dress code is one of the few ways I feel limited in the workplace, and I would feel so much more comfortable if this was not something I had to do. Having worked in many kitchen and food service environments, facial piercings have never been previously considered relevant to food safety in my experience. I understand that the laws in different areas may state otherwise, and that Starbucks as a company has an obligation to adhere to state and local law concerning body jewelry. Above all, I put my trust in Starbucks to adapt to current shifting cultural ideas surrounding the appearance of it's partners, and to modify our dress code to follow.

  • G4S Security let us have NEATLY kept beards

  • Allow facial piercings
    It is important that the associates are allowed to express themselves. We have come a long way as a nation. We used to see tattoos as some taboo form of art. Now they are more widely accepted. Piercings are also becoming more commonplace in the younger generations. Are piercings really much different than a person wearing makeup?

  • Allow dollar general employees to dye their hair non-natural colors.
    This is way important because they are basically saying we are not able to express our selves in our own way. They are stopping us from being free to show who we are even if it includes us dying our hair a silly color.

  • Facial Hair Policy
    The facial hair policy they currently have is outdated , the culture today isn't the same as it was back when a clean shave was appreciated.

  • Starbucks, restricting piercings is keeping your partners from showing their true selves!
    It's simple! Having multiple piercings, whether it may be a septum piercing, eyebrow piercing, or many, many ear piercings, doesn't make our appearance seem criminal, and it does not mean said partner is unapproachable. Customers care about our products and the amazing experience they receive by coming the Starbucks. This WILL NOT be hindered by allowing partners to have more piercings. Please, allow partners the ability to FULLY express themselves. If you agree, give this petition a sign!

  • Allow unnatural hair color at Holiday
    With the changing times, many have become more accepting to unnatural hair color or styles in the workplace.I feel that it is important for employees to express themselves and their character while still being in a uniform. A change in the dress code policy to allow unnatural haircolor would help.

  • Give us our hands!
    The reason I believe this is important because I care for my hands. I have always used color on my fingers as part of my personality. I accepted this as the part of my job I hate. Which says my job is great! The public sees our hands a lot! But I see so many women express themselves with color. It causes connections in our stores. Imagine how much more connected we can be to have another topic to discuss with our customers.

  • Let us have un-natural colored hair.
    I love my job at Starbucks, but being such an inclusive company and not allowing us to fully express ourselves makes us not feel as individualized as we should. The Green Apron is a trademark for Starbucks, so it shouldn't matter what color hair we have. It is now 2015, personalities bigger, and individuality shrinking. Having multicolored bright hair isn't distracting, it's personal. Thank you for okay-ing tattoos but this is the next step we need to take.
