Females

Hair

Hair must be natural, clean, well groomed and simply arranged. Faddish, extreme hairstyles, including (but not limited to) multi-colored or unnatural colors, sculpted hair, tails, partially shaved heads and dreadlocks are not permitted. Those who prefer long hair should take special care so that it will not create a safety hazard by falling forward or over the face while performing normal job duties. Shaved patterns in the sides, back or front of the hair are not permitted.

Make-Up

Employees should emphasize the natural look. Nails should be no greater that ¼" inch in length, and if polished, only with one solid color and no additional adornment. Either clear or natural colored nail polishes as well as any polishes that are complimentary to an employee's skin color are permitted. In addition, conservative shades of red and pink are also acceptable. Employees should also be discreet in the use of cosmetics and perfume.

Tattoos

Tattoos on hands, face, neck or head are prohibited. Other tattoos are not permitted to be visible to our guests and must be concealed with cosmetic makeup or bandages, except where prohibited by health codes. Visible body branding; intentional body scarring; and skin or bone implants that modify one’s appearance, other than for medically necessary reasons, are prohibited. Tongue splitting; earlobe expansion, otherwise known as “gauging”; decorative dental grills and tooth filing; and any other type of body modification that intentionally causes an unnatural or unprofessional look or disfigurement to any visible body part is prohibited. “Visible” is defined as any area of the body that cannot be covered up by a regularly issued uniform for that volunteer’s assigned position.

Jewelry

Conservative personal jewelry (such as a watch, one ring per hand and no more than two earrings in each lower earlobe) is permitted. Thumb rings are not permitted. Heavy jewelry, as well as any body piercing (with the exception of two earrings per lower earlobe) is not permitted. This also refers to tongue piercing, as well as any other type of facial piercing. In addition, adhesive bandages may not be used to cover up piercings.

Males

Hair

Hair must be natural, neatly trimmed and clean at all times. Styling should be tapered at the sides and back so the lower one-half of the ear is visible and the back is no longer than the top of a normal dress shirt. Hair should not fall forward or over the face while performing normal job duties. Extreme hairstyles, including (but not limited to) multi-colored or unnatural hair colors, sculpted hair, tails, braids, ponytails, dreadlocks, partially shaved heads and spikes are not permitted. Shaved patterns in the sides, back or front of the hair are not allowed. Men must be cleanly shaved. Beards and goatees are not permitted, however, a neatly groomed mustache that does not extend below or beyond the corners of the mouth or below the upper lip is permitted. Sideburns may not extend past the bottom of the ear. They must be neatly trimmed and may not flare out at the bottom. Employees are not permitted to wear fingernail polish or makeup, except when used to conceal tattoos.

Tattoos

Tattoos on hands, face, neck or head are prohibited. Other tattoos are not permitted to be visible to our guests and must be concealed with cosmetic makeup or bandages, except where prohibited by health codes. Visible body branding; intentional body scarring; and skin or bone implants that modify one’s appearance, other than for medically necessary reasons, are prohibited.

Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom prohibits all employees and/or volunteers ("Workers") from engaging in the illegal use of drugs while on DP/WWK's premises and/or while conducting DP/WWK business. The term "illegal use of drugs" includes the use, concealment, possession, manufacture, sale, purchase, transportation or distribution of illegal drugs; the use, concealment, possession, sale, purchase, transportation or distribution of legal drugs without a proper prescription when the drug is available only by prescription; the misuse of legal or properly prescribed drugs; and the misuse of inhalants. DP/WWK also prohibits all Workers from being under the influence of illegally used drugs while on DP/WWK's premises or while conducting DP/WWK's business.

The possession, distribution, unauthorized use, sale, concealment, purchase, transportation or consumption of alcoholic beverages while on DP/WWK's premises or while conducting DP/WWK business is prohibited. No volunteer shall consume alcohol during breaks or meal periods. DP/WWK further prohibits all Workers from being under the influence of alcohol while on DP/WWK's premises and/or while conducting DP/WWK business.

Any volunteer scheduled to work in rides or at the waterpark attractions will be required to submit to a drug test may be required to submit to alcohol testing. The drug test shall include testing for adulterants. All information regarding drug and alcohol testing shall be kept confidential.

Any volunteer who is scheduled to work in rides or in the waterpark, and who refuses to be tested or to cooperate with testing procedures shall be prohibited from performing any further services for DP/WWK. Volunteers are also required to produce Photo Identification at the time of testing.

Testing will take place at the time listed as your group's work start time and will be completed before members of the group are permitted to go into the Park. Please make certain that everyone has a photo ID. If the initial drug screening is "inconclusive", it will be sent to an approved, licensed laboratory to confirm inconclusive screening results. Volunteers whose screening results for drugs are inconclusive, will cease performing services for DP/WWK pending the receipt of confirmatory results from the laboratory. DP/WWK and the volunteer may make arrangements for transporting the volunteer home when the initial screen for drugs is inconclusive.
