I've seen it with both clothing stores as well as places where you just sell food. Like, I get it from the clothing store as they have a certain "image" to go with their clothing but even some restaurants? Like, do they judge you on your appearance in order to work there? Like you wouldn't get the job if you're not good-looking according to them or something?

Omg I just thought about this! I got a holiday job at Sidestep (a store which sells sneakers and sportswear). When I applied there I was so "fake" hahah, I was wearing my sister's nike sneakers because I don't own any and clothes that make me look sporty.
I think wanting their staff look sporty is understandable, it would look weird if I was was workig therer with ballerinas, a blouse and a cardigan! 😁
But I don't think that it matters what you look like if you work at a food store.2
