Some supervisors can be hard to work for. But employees on the private jet of Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Michael Jeffries had to abide by some seriously strange rules.
Jeffries’ private staff were required to abide by a 40-page manual of instructions which was recently made public in an age bias lawsuit.
Some of the more inane requirements:
- Black gloves were to be worn when handling silverware and white gloves worn when laying the table
- Coats were only to be worn when it was 50 degrees or lower,
- Flip-flops were to be worn when meeting passengers and while in flight
- The song “Take Me Home” was to be played when people entered the plane for return flights
- Jeffries’ dogs had different seating arrangements depending on which ones were traveling, and
- When Jeffries makes a request of a staff member, the employee should respond with, “No problem” instead of “Sure” or “Just a minute.”
