    I was just curious.

    Ive had interviews for clubs, and upmarkets shops like House of Fraser in the designer section.

    I just wondered do they have a certain 'look' that they hire?

    I never got the jobs, and looks wise Id say im average at best (thats when i have make up on!), definitely not attractive.

    This thread sparked from someone elses who was asking if she had the right 'look'. And when i thought about it, when you go into shops like River Island, Top Shop, Republic they all seem to be young attractive assistants. Are they really allowed to be this choosy?
