I've never had a job that has allowed facial hair... donno how you guys do it.

If it isn't in your employment contract that you have to be clean-shaved you can refuse. If your employer is a by the book kind of dude/chick he'll/she'll accept and just simply ask you to keep it tidy or he/she could give you a letter to implore you to shave from that point on. 

Of course he/she could just fire you but that would be a breach of the contract and you could hit up a union or something. 

I get away with it for working my ass off so they try not to get on my ass too much.

Pretty much this.

 

Got the job first, the beard came later. I have had hints thrown my way that clean shaved would be better but I just give them some smart arse comment in return and nothing is really said. There is nothing in my contract about facial hair. Currently seeing how long I can get it before either the boss or the higher ups complain.

Never been an issue for my job... I generally only shave every 3 or 4 days, so regularly sport a scruffy 'shadow'.... purely because I get lazy... Electric razors just aren't that pleasant, and safety blades are a time consuming device to use daily... At the end of the day I work in an industry where we dress scruffy, and inevitably stink of chicken sh*t, dust, ammonia.... So I don't think anyone will care if I don't brush my hair or shave before work..

Well I have a beard and I used to work in a corporate office and at a rough time in my life I literally didn't shave for over a year and looked like I could've passed for changing my religion to one of those that have mandatory beards for men...

I've got one that's similiar, but with a smaller and removable blade.

I'm still growing my beard btw. Hope it doesn't stay messi for too long.
