I actually have no problems with it, beauty may be subjective, but you are npt the boss of the company. They should have some right concerning who they hire. I'm sick of people complaining about discrimination, its not exactly gonna go away, so just get used to it. A fat guy isn't likely to get hired at hooters anytime soon to be a waiter, its the company's right. And actually its not really that they hire pretty people, its people who wearclothes from those stores. Same thing happens at hot topic.0
Officially, no. Unofficially, yes. Like, they might hire an uggo to work stocking shelves or something, but yeah generally only attractive people work the floor. They're legally not allowed to discriminate based on looks, but honestly, they can make up any reason for hiring or not hiring a person, so no one can really stop it. They do it cause they're not just selling the brand, they're selling an image. And a big part of that image is being above average looking.32
My friend applied for a job at A.E.
She's a little bit overweight, but not too much. She's really sweet, and a super hard worker. They declined her. She walked into the store a month or so later, with her good fried: she was tan, and skinny, and gorgeous. And the manager actually CAME up to her friend, and OFFERED her a job, when they had declined the other "not as pretty" girl just a month earlier.
Completely stupid and shallow, I think.3
Hollister calls their salespeople "models", so under the law they are allowed to discriminate based on looks.11

Ppssshh. Discrimination. Beauty is subjective. Imagine workers in a Hollister, etc. having debates on the prettiness v.s. ugliness of their employers. To hire or not to. How pathethic. But yeah, there is a lot of judgment for a lot of job interviews, with tattoos, piercings, etc. A lot about the look and status. It's really lame. It gets done. The ones at the top get the decision, so can't say it's illegal. I'm not sure if there's something you can do about it..4
With television promoting beauty over brains, and now these kind of stores discriminating against average people because they are not models, the plague is spreading. Pretty soon, you will have to be pretty to either get hired at a job. You might not even be allowed to go shopping at the mall unless you are pretty.0
It's because if you walked into a hollister and you saw a bunch of ugly people working there, you probably wouldn't want to buy their clothes.1
you just have to be thin I guess. but all stores hire according to their style. like hot topic is not gonna hire preps, yknow?0
I don't think they do, I've seen plenty of unnatracctive people working at stores like that0
people tend to buy more shops with attractive people because that makes that story seem more high class0
people are that shallow10

I used to work there well abercrombie, which is the same company, and ya they only hire good looking people. If you get a job there it is the easiest job you will ever have, all I had to do was stand at the front door with a really hot chick and greet people who came in the store. I was in high school so I didn't really care that I only made minimum wage.
By law they do hire pretty much anyone, now if you don't have the looks they want, then you work in the back room, or you set up the store.
