Section A - Proper Workplace Appearance and Attire
We want our Chauffeurs to be looking their best when they show up for every job! Our professionalism sets us apart from the competition and appropriate grooming and attire are important in setting the tone.
Different jobs call for a different atmosphere and as such we have three categories of workplace attire for our chauffeurs. You are responsible for showing up to your job dressed appropriately, so if you are unsure, please ask for clarification.
PLEASE NOTE that although most jobs will call for one of these two categories, some jobs will be unique and we reserve the right to ask you to adjust your dress accordingly.
Section A.1 – Appropriate grooming, appearance, etc.
An important thing to keep in mind is it’s not just what you wear, but how you wear it. As such, we have standards for appropriate hair length, facial hair, etc., and just like with attire we reserve the right to send you home and give the day’s job to someone else if you don’t meet those standards. Like with anything else, if you are unsure, ask!
These grooming guidelines apply for ALL WORK with Albemarle Limousine:
- All clothing items must be clean and neatly pressed
- Shoes must be clean and polished
- Only conservative jewelry may be worn
- No noticeable earrings or long hair for men
- All hair and facial hair must be neatly groomed
- No fragrances, colognes, strong soaps, body sprays, etc. - smell neutral!

Occasionally, there may be a wedding, corporate event, airport transfer, etc., that is relaxed enough to permit Wine Trail Attire, but WE WILL TELL YOU IF THIS IS THE CASE. Don’t assume a job is relaxed because if you assume wrong and show up underdressed you will either have to go home and change OR we may have to give the job to someone else.
