ok i heard that if u apply 2 hollister for a job...the may not hire u if ur not so 'physically attractive'....in other words...is it tru that they only hire good-looking ppl...n dont hire ugly ppl .......not that i have nething 2 worry about haha....i guess cuz they have a certain image they wanna show

Yeh, it's true... you have to be good looking wink.gif And I heard if you're a girl, you can't wear make-up.. or at least not too much ermm.gif so looks like I can't get a job there...

My friend Gloria was there and went up to them and was like "Do you have to be tall and white to work here?" They were all like "Noo... " haha, I thought it was funny...

I dont like hollister.. cause the ones around my area is racist <--that's what i heard.. and once i went there... none of the employee's would say HI or anything. They act like you're not even there pinch.gif

and yea.. u do have to be attractive to work there... the girls that works over here.. looks like models pinch.gif
StarryEyedSurprize
yeah i did notice that everyone that works there is pretty.. but i didnt know they only hire u if u are
IIO__oII
in a lot of places, they hire you only cause youre pretty and attractive...

i saw this TV show where they tested out to see if that was true.. they picked out this plain, short girl and this tall, beautiful like model girl. the non-attractive girl was asked all these questions and was put on the waiting list. the attractive girl instantly got the job AND got a raise at the same time. [and all on a hidden camera ]
WTF IS THAT?

i wouldn know since the hollister in pearlz neva opened yet
vivieeeen
meh- once i went in there, and i never went there again

Me: um excuse me, i can't seem to find the other color of this shirt...
Salesgirl: Uh, can't you wait a sec

*i got so pissed off i said the following to her*

Me: Uh, hello? no? you think i would love to waste my time on waiting for YOU, the sales, just because you asked me to? no.

You're supposed to provide service. Give it to me or i'm gonna speak to your manager and you will end up as a thrift store sales instead.

Man, I think that is the stupidest thing ever. I guess it's not an "equal-opportunity employer", those losers. Hollister is stupid so I don't shop there.

Psh, I can buy clothes exactly like those at Hollister for 20 bucks less and the only difference is that they don't have the Hollister label.

Lol, I agree! You can get a lot of beautiful clothes someplace else and for a cheaper price too!

Hollister is the dumbest store ever if you only get hired for being tall, pretty, and don't wear a lot of makeup. That's some dumbass sh1t. Next time, if anyone ever plans to go there, wear a shirt that's dissing Hollister. I'm sorry, but that's the dumbest sh1t ever.

And scream at their faces and make a scene if they tell you to wait. I'll be like what the eff? *screaming* LOL That's me though.

captured_serenity
no that's abercrombie that does that...i applied to hollister and worked there but then i quit because i couldnt handle it all with college and stuff...but they arent...i'm not even white and tall i'm pinay and short...and olive like skin...so i dont know where you got that from...
AznKutie
Ugh....never knew that...

It's really stupid though mad.gif how mean..and from what i've heard the other ppl say..they're racist too ohmy.gif

i'm never shopping there
happy endings
yeah..i bet that they DO only hire attractice people..cuz they wanna keep that "image".
hcosurfkid
Yes.. It is ture.. And no it is not.. It is true because they will only hire pertty people, or people who have a good body. And no it is not true, becausse sum times there are sum ugly girls working there.. Well i guess they do want pertty people to work there, but if u think about it logically, mostly hott people buy there clothes, and would want to work there.. Not to be sterotypical, but not to many ugly people shop there, there fore, only hott peple will want ot apply to wok there. There fore it is sumtimes not true..
POonSKi
well...i've heard tat stores like hollister are racist~ cuz many times when i walk in there they happened to act as if i wasnt there~ hmmm.... well... after all i dont really like tat store...

We don't have Hollister here thats is (Vancouver) So I don't have to worry about it, but I think in every store its mostly like that, if they have a model looking person and a okay person for sure they'll pick the model person. They have exactly the same thing here, Aritzia is a store that does that. All females that works there are all prettyy. I just don't get why don't the workers have manners dammit.

I think everyone's making a bigger deal about race than they should. They just hire who they hire you know? They want their image to look a certain way. I don't think a store like the Pottery Barn would hire some goth girl with nose rings and purple hair. Like, who cares that A black guy was working at abercrombie and one wasn't working at hollister? Or that An asian was working at hollister but not abercrombie? They hire all races as long as the person fits their ideal image. And no race is not a factor in that.

hmmm i wouldnt really know because i dont even go near hollister O_O but i know this girl esther who went to diet camp and all to become skinny and pretty so she can work at abercrombie o.0;; and she told me only "GORGEOUS TALL AND BEAUTIFULLLLLLLLLLL" yawn.gif hehe?
inthemudhole
Hm.
No idea.
We don't have a Hollister here, I don't think.. ermm.gif

a lot of places do this, even though they don't publicly say that they'll be this way

and i highly doubt hollister will say, "yea we only hire good looking ppl." they can get screwed for being discriminatory

it also goes for gender, race, age, and some other stuff. fair? no, but it's life.

AngelicEyz00

AzNxLuNaTiC

AngelicEyz00

xolilkatie
Probablly.. but alot of store are like that. They want you to wear their clothes too of course and have a certain 'style'.. I never saw anyone ugly working in hollister.. so i guess its true wink.gif
silver-rain
wow, that really sucks. hmm, i won't be able to get a job there.
pbear

fallenang3l211

Sumiaki
Yup. I would think that's true. Think about all the other stores like hollister. All I see there are white gorgeous people. mellow.gif
AzNxLuNaTiC
what is the world coming to blink.gif
justchillen
i so wouldnt doubt it.. i hate shopping at all the preppy white stores
CrackedRearView
Lmao. I worked at Hollister when I was 16 _unsure.gif
captured_serenity
i think this should be in debates...people could debate about this all day long...but hey i guess... i just think that hollister isnt racist, because the one here in Houston, TX hires just about anybody the only thing is that they have to wear the HOLLISTER label when they work...and it's cool...they are pretty awesome...there is a goth girl who works there but she wears the hollister label when she works and when she gets off she changes her clothes...that's my friend because i used to work with her...i think it only applies to certain stores
sammi rules you
it's true, same goes for abercrombie & fitch.
dreamerOi
no wonder eveyrone who works theyr looks so hot hahaa but dont you also have to be white to work theyr?
AzNxLuNaTiC

AzNxLuNaTiC
mayb i should apply n see if they take me....i have nothing to lose...xcept my self esteem...hahh
jimmyjackiechan
GAP and BANANA republic was very similar. I notice they usually recruit them rich white females, or the the metro-sexual, semi-pretty boy guys to work there. I rarely see a black female or an asian guy. Dominated white people. That's what I see...
