Wear your uniform with pride, embody our company values, and you'll transform moments into experiences of a lifetime.

Standards of Appearance + Dress Code

As a Team Member of Space Needle, your personal image is one of the first impressions our Guests will remember about our Attraction. Our Guests vary widely in their cultures and social norms. For this reason, Space Needle maintains a conservative appearance to appeal to all our Guests and would like each Team Member’s personality to shine through. Team Members must always be conscious of their appearance, hygiene, and manners.

Team Members who require a reasonable accommodation to the standards or requirements set forth in this policy for reasons based on religion, disability or other grounds protected by federal, state or local laws should contact their Supervisor or Human Resources representative.

The following grooming policies and procedures apply to every hourly uniformed Team Member:

  • Team Members are expected to wear the uniform specific to their department
  • New uniform for most departments will be polo shirt + black pants + black shoes
  • Name tag to be visible either on polo shirt or jacket
  • Team Members can continue to wear their company-given fleece grey fleece jacket or wind breaker
  • Additions, deletions, faded garments or alterations to uniforms are prohibited
  • Uniforms are to be clean, pressed, and presentable at all times
  • Uniforms should have an appropriate fit. The uniform should not be worn too tight or too loose. Because there are many body types, the Space Needle has allowed Team Members to provide their own pants for the uniform
  • No cargo pants except for Facilities team
  • No visible logos on pants or any other Team Member supplied garment
  • No jeans, including black denim
  • New polo shirts can be worn untucked – as per design
  • Shirts worn underneath uniforms must be solid black or white and must be complementary to the uniform
  • Hats shall be company-issued
  • Hat brims of Space Needle issued hats must always face forward
  • Uniforms are to be clean, wrinkle-free, and presentable at all times


Please note the updates to these guidelines!

  • Black pants are required for most departments
  • Pants must be worn at the waist
  • Pants should not have ragged or frayed pant cuffs
  • If pants have belt loops, a brown or black leather belt is required. Synthetic leather belt is acceptable
  • Jeans (including black denim), prints, patterns, velvet, Lycra, and Spandex are prohibited
  • Fishnet leggings or seamed nylons are not allowed
  • Pants that are a mix of fibers (cotton + polyester, nylon, Tencel, etc.) will fade less due to washing
  • A “wrinkle free” material is preferred
