    OK so I got a job offer. I know some daycares require scrubs or smock as uniform. Most of the time it was optional or I got out of it because I was male. I think they are unprofessional unless your in the medical field. One person was like yo will not have to ware them. Another person we had a male wear them. It is not so much the scrubs it is the colors you have to wear.

    Monday = Ocean Blue Tuesday = Hot Pink Wednesday = Lime Green Thursday = Orange Friday = Yellow. I am going to have to talk to them about this. Not to be sexiest but a male in Hot Pink scrubs? Anyways what you think? Also I think I have to buy my own uniforms.

    I'm not sure that they'll make an exception to their staff uniform for you. Perhaps they would allow you to wear khakis and a polo in the colour of the day?

    I agree. If its a policy, they probably wouldn't exempt you from the required uniform.

    Given all the trouble you've had finding the right job, I wouldn't let THIS be the deal breaker.

    Buying your own uniform shouldn't be a big deal either; you would be expected to buy your work clothes in most lines of work. I know that I spend some pretty good money on the clothes I wear to work. And at least scrubs are easy to wash and incredibly comfortable.

    Wish I could wear scrubs to work! Super comfortable and not having to fumble around in the morning trying to put an outfit together? Yes, please!

    I'm sure you meant sexist, not sexiest...:dizzy:

    Be thankful you got a job offer.

    I don't think they are unprofessional if they are required and everyone else wears them too -- they are more practical than anything. I agree that this shouldn't be a deal-breaker. I would be happy just to have a job! But once you get the job maybe you can work with them and ask if you can wear something other than pink.

    As I male I agree with the OP. I would feel out of place wearing scrubs of these colors. But if I got a call from any one of the schools I have interviewed with and they said I could have the job as long as I wore a pink dress on Fridays; you know very well that I would show up in the best dang pink dress that school has ever seen!

    Why not be grateful to have a job offer? I know many of us here would gladly be in your position.

    I know it might be weird to wear those colors as a male, but I'm sure they have had other male employees and they all agreed to do it.
    If they haven't made exception for them, they probably won't do it for you. I would do as they say, and then who knows, later on, maybe things can change?

    I've heard scrubs are comfy, and having requested colors on certain days definitely cuts down on figuring out what to wear.

    I'm not sure what the big deal is. They're just colors.

    Also, even if you need to buy your own, it might be cheaper than buying work clothes.

    Monday = Eeyore day
    Tuesday = Piglet day
    Wednesday = No idea... by this point in your wardrobe, Margarita day seems likely
    Thursday = Tigger day
    Friday = Pooh day
