I always wondered this. It appears to be because confidence and using your initiative is a quality which most employers look for. Someone who actually confronts the business in terms of asking if they have any jobs, rather than waiting for the job to advertise and responding, shows that you have confidence and initiative and shows you really want to work there. Try going into some places and asking. Also, places like Sainsburys put new jobs up everyday online and they usually always have something going.

Most companies will hire recruitment agencies to find employees for them, for a fee.
The recruitment agencies tend to post the job role, but not the company name, and individuals then apply for the job through the agency rather than directly. They might also hire using internal resources (networking), to head-hunt suitable people, or to have other employees suggest people they know, which is much cheaper than paying recruitment fees.
Of course, most retail companies will just rely on in-store applications and a constant flow of CVs. Simply go into places such as hotels and restaurants and ask.
