    [QUOTE=Saraahhhh;33974685]Hey, don't worry you have two weeks until they call you,
    The hollister i work at (brent cross) LOVEEEE black people, I mean they're all beautiful, around 60% of the boys are black so I highly doubt it's anything to do with race

    How do you go about applying to work at Hollister? Do you just walk in store and ask someone for an application form? Do you have to have a full printed CV with you?
    Just wondering, I plan on applying to work at the one in the new Westfield in Stratford London, as it's only one tube stop away from my uni.

    I think its ironic that they hire people from different races to be 'diverse' but in doing so, at times it seems like at time they have a smaller percentage of white people working there than there is in this country

    Why is that ironic? A shops staff does not have to accurately represent the total population of the country. People need to stop thinking of race as comparison or thing to keep in order and more as a thing that people just have and means nothing more.

    The ability for someone do to a job has nothing to do with their race, and therefore it shouldn't even be considered in the workplace what race the employee has.

    I got asked to work for them a while ago til I told the manager my size sees me classed as "plus size" - i fit into their clothes no problem and i'm in seriously good shape, just built larger, but they didn't want to know after that.
    out of interest, what size are you? i got approached to apply as a model the other day.... my interview is on tuesday but im a size 8/10 on top but i sometimes need to buy size 12 jeans? so they're not going to take me haha, dont see why they approached me in the first place :L

    I'm a 16. Dont worry, one of the models in Hollister in Newcastle must be a 12 all over, i think its like their upper size limit.

    Okay just wanted to get this cleared up. The only store that hire you based on your looks (and can actually get away with it) is Hollister and Abercrombie who get around any discrimination problems by hiring people as 'models' this means that they have the right to hire only 'attractive' people. Stores such as Jack Wills do not follow such a policy - i would know i work there. Most stores will hire people due to their enthusiasm towards their brand.
    Yes Hollister's policy is unfair but it obviously works due to the stupid amount of stores popping up everywhere!

    i don't think it's necessarily whether you're good looking, but if you can wear clothes well. I mean a lot of the guy's i see in Hollister clearly go to the gym, and therefore look better in clothes than someone who doesn't perhaps, and i've seen people in the street who were better looking than them, but its the clothes and the brand that sells, so they have to hire to promote them both.
    It sucks, but its easy advertising
