Fear the beard, Extron, Human Resources, diversity, cultural sensitivity

I just interviewed at Extron.  The managers and engineers were very friendly, intelligent, it was great
talking shop with them.

The subsequent HR interview was OK until the woman (had braces, wore pants too tight for an office, medium complexion) brought up my beard.

Its a cm.  Two of three engineers had beards.  Apparently a cm is a bit much for this narcissistic pinhead social whore.

So, I didn't get it.  But, I like my beard.  Had it for longer than this HR bimbo was alive.

Good thing there's no good jewish, sikh, muslim, or other engineers.
I'm sure the company will do fine, building out a linux capability ... with cretin staff like this.
