    I've seen it worn in an office environment and it looks fine, like if they wear a plain one. Would you say/think the same to a Sikh man wearing a turban?
    Yes... I find the whole headgear thing totally Unnecessary.

    You clearly have something against Muslims if you don't like them wearing headscarves at interviews.
    Everybody has to remove what they are wearing on their head during interviews. It's not against Muslims, but if they cannot understand this basic rule, they can try to find a job elsewhere.

    ....well you should if you have a vagina between your legs as it is a very valid point and one you should be wary of.

    Last time I checked people don't keep their hat during interviews.
    Even a child can distinguish between a hat and headscarf. 27 y/o.

    People remove their hat when they are working in an office, unless it is part of a uniform. This is basic respectful behaviour.
    It's not a hat though, it's a scarf. It's like telling someone they have to remove their clip in their hair or jewellery. Hijabs are allowed in an office, uniforms aren't that strict.

    They both cover the head.

    But it's an important part of their religion. As long as they're trying to make it look as professional as they can I don't see the problem.

    Im sure they would never even dare work for a close minded person which such silly opinions on hijabs and such like yourself. Theyll be fine getting promotions, they seem to be intelligent.

    The problem lies in that if a Muslim can wear that then a non Muslim should be allowed to choose to wear flip flops because they have bunions or w/e due to medical reasons but there is no way in hell that would happen. They wouldn't be taken seriously just like a person wearing something on their head won't be taken seriously by some.

    It's not a requirement of their religion.

    Thanks, that's why I chose to work in a place where majority are Muslims, just to save the hassle

    Hijab (headscarf) = fine
    Burka (that long dress thing) = fine
    Niqab = wouldn't hire

    As an employer, I couldn't have my employee not showing their faces as they interact with others, especially if that involves customers. It looks intimidating and poses a huge safety risk.
    this is a burqa (not exactly "fine"):

    I do, as long as you comply with the rule that everybody follows. I don't see why Muslims should have a special treatment.
