Are you pretty enough?

At one point we were trying to decide between two potential job candidates. Each had their pros and cons, but due to availability, one applicant looked like she was going to get the job.

The district manager was in the studio one day and going over impressions of the applicants with the studio manager.

DM lowered her voice and asked the studio manager, "is she attractive?"
Seeing my reaction, SM looked at me and said "No, it's true! Babies respond more to attractive faces!"

So if you want a job, hope you've got what it takes.

Well, also since it is a sales job, there are studies that show that attractive people do better in sales average. Sad, but true.

Pfsh, Please!!! I am extremely overweight (thanks to having 3 kids, in 3yrs) with dull hair and a pimply face like a teen ager.... my PRS hasnt been below a $150 in MONTHS. Your DM is off her rocker and very out of line!

I also am not skinny by any means... and I also have a fiscal prs of 165 as well as top sales in my district and just became the manager recently! So your DM is insane, and that could be considered discrimination
