Did you point that out to the interviewer? I'd also like to know what it was you wore. Just because a company sells halter tops and short-shorts doesn't make it an appropriate outfit to interview with.
The only one store I can think of that is capable of this much douchebaggery is Abercrombie & Fitch. I used to work there and they require that you dress in their clothes without explicitly saying it and they hire based on looks. It was my first job as a 16 year old and i quickly learned that there is absolutely nothing glorious about working there when you only get paid minimum wage and most of my managers were late 20's/early 30's kids who got off on hitting on younger girls and yes, sleeping with the "prettier ones".
Sorry, but if you're being kicked out because your clothes were just that inappropriate for the job, you probably deserved it. Buying from their store doesn't necessarily make it okay. Now put your clothes back on; Victoria's Secret just didn't want you this time.
I never said that at all; I just find it a little upsetting when people can't see the difference between casual and business attire- they're pretty different, and it isn't too hard to figure out. As for the whore comment… well, now you're really assuming things. I don't think I even insinuated she was whorish, unless you took my little joke at the end too seriously.
Yes, if you want to work at Victoria's Secret, you don't show up at the interview wearing a silk teddy and fishnet stockings. I'm hiring, though, and that outfit will totally work for me;)
If you weren't dressed in business casual attire (at the minimum), then you probably WEREN'T dressed appropriately. Interviews are about making a good first impression, so wearing clothes from the store itself probably made you seem too casual.
You would be suprised at how people come to interviews these days. I've gone so some where women do not wear a bra and men just wear any old t-shirt. I find it disrespectful. Almost as disrespectful as going in front of a judge in pajamas, but that is another subject. People, dress to IMPRESS, not depress.
I have no idea why you spent your last $100 on clothes at Hank's House o' Hos in the first place, but wearing those rags to a job interview is just plain stupid.
