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.

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;)

Wow, it didn't take long for the idiotic assumptions to start spewing!

4 - That's why I said I'd like to know, dumbass. I was pointing out that not everything a clothing company sells would necessarily be appropriate for an interview; it was an example, not an assumption.

1 - I don't think halter tops and short-shorts cost $100...

25 - Depends where you shop. I have (unfortunately) seen a halter top alone come in at more than $100. I myself will stick to Kohls and consignment stores, thank you very much.

56, if OP was trying to help the chances of getting the job, it would make sense to spend money and buy NICE clothes. However, there is a such thing as OVER dressing. If you look like you think you are too good for the job, they probably will not hire you.

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".

55 - Oh a bit of indulgence, English is probably not the first language of whoever has autocorrect adding accent on their words ;) I feel the pain! Believe me, we try!

what kind of store are you working at?

By  FranzFerdinand  |  18

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.

You sound a bit angry there. Just because she didn't dress appropriately doesn't mean she was dressed like a whore.. It might have meant that she just dressed a little too casually for that job interview. No need to rant

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.

50. It's probably because he is Perdix and everyone just thumbs up because he is popular and stuff.... Or he is just better at commenting :)

Well said Perdix. Well said indeed.

Perdix, seeing as you're hiring, does this include all shapes and sizes of women? There are a lot of people looking for jobs these days.(I'll probably get voted down for this but this is a legitimate question.) *Enters sarcasm here*

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.

people who want to be taken seriously. Just because they might let you where casual clothes while working doesn't mean they want you showing up like to an interview where you are meant to look your best and give a good first impression.

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.

Why is everyone hating on me? Didnt say it would be right out of law school. Also I am a very smart person I dont think how I dress makes me dumb. I would wear a suit because I want to work in a law office so I know I cant dress like a bum.

I wore a suit to my interview at Wal-Mart. I dunno if it was necessary, but I walked out of there with a Conditional Offer of Employment. Been working there a year now.

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.
