They told me "Business casual" with closed toed shoes but a few weeks into the job everyone (and i mean EVERYONE) wore sneakers.

Answered

At our store, tattoos and piercings are allowed. Just no face piercings in cafe. Our manager doesn't even like a tongue ring.

Answered

It's semi-casual with an office vibe, so if you have super offensive tattoos or crazy face piercings they might ask to tone it down. I think colored hair was kind of a no-no, but a lot of people I worked with had tattoos so I guess it differs store to store.

Answered

Yes, they didn't care for you exactly, they didn't care for anything

Some locations allow it and others do not.

Answered

Facial hair permitted.

Answered

I wore black jeans, a button up blouse, and black slip ons for a part-time bookseller position, and I got the job.

Answered

No jeans at all. You can wear dress pants, and even some leggings that look similar to dress pants too, but no jeans or t-shirts.
They don’t really care about shoes as long as they aren’t flashy or overly extravagant.
