Hey folks,

I'm looking to get on with TMC after completing my CDL program and I have a question about how they apply their dress code. I have earrings and have for years and would like to keep them. Does anyone who has experience with TMC know if the dress code regarding no earrings is relaxed after orientation? Ever seen a TMC driver with earrings?

Thanks

It states on their website NO visible piercings.

The TMC owners are ex military from what I have been told. Earrings might not impress them.

I'd think as long as you kept them in on your home time they'd stay open. You've had them years so how long can you leave something out of them without them closing?

If in cab cams weren't a thing I'd say leave them in unless you're getting out of the truck. Even then you could sleep with something in them and remove them before getting out of the sleeper no?

If it's either or you'll have to decide if you want TMC or earrings more.

I have MULTIPLE piercings, and rarely 'decorate' with them. I've gotten older, let's say. The holes have NEVER closed up. None.

I don't have gauges; that may differ. However, with a company like TMC (Military/Marines) I wouldn't even wear mini diamonds, as a female.

Suggestion? Buy a jewlery box; lock the studs (diamonds, et al) up. Get a haircut, high & tight.

Wish you well!
