    ...are something I have to call into question. Every time I go there it seems like everyone is new, and 90% of them are hot blondes, with the remaining 10% being hot brunettes.

    Now, I'm not complaining about the eye candy, and I'm not complaining about the service, as it's always been good. I just have to wonder how they haven't had the pants sued off them for discrimination.

    Two possible legitimate reasons for this:

    1. It is the greatest coincidence ever that all the best interviewees happened to be attractive blondes.

    2. Only attractive blondes apply for jobs there. Maybe they're all friends who refer each other?

    As long as people aren't being turned down for jobs because of their looks, I say keep at it, Buffalo Wild Wings! Your overpriced chain restaurant does have some wicked good boneless wings.

    Fuck if I know. I've never been there. I've heard their hiring practices have grown pretty lenient over the years though.

    Also, based on no evidence at all whatsoever, I've decided that Buffalo Wild Wings has a shower in the back where they all wash up together after closing up.

    What do you care if uggos aren't hired? Their faces are bad for my digestion anyway.

    In some instances, descrimination is justified legally. It's called Bona Fide Occupational Qualifications.

    The image of the hot Hooter girl is necessary for the success of the business.

    It's the same with airlines and police, too. The law allows them to put age limits in place for new hires. Nobody wants an 80yo flying their plane or chasing bad guys down the street.

    Well you don't hire ugly people to model your clothes( well some are). I do see what you are saying though. Well try your method and see if they only hire blondes and brunettes. Send a redhead in there and see what happens...

    Maybe places like BWW work best with high turnover, where the staff move on before they eat too much of the food there and pork out.

    Isn't that their gimmick? Tits are in the name. I know its a cute play on words having an owl in the logo and all, but c'mon.

    A former co-worker of mine ran into something like this once. He applied for a job at the store across from ours at the mall. He got a voicemail from the manager (a female) asking him to set up an interview. When he called back, the assistant manager (a male) told him that the position had already been filled. Then we watched the assistant manager spend the next couple of months interviewing nothing but teenage/20-something females until we got a call from the manager wanting to know why they kept getting dirty looks from one of our employees.

    My point was that this "phenomenon" the OP posted about already blatantly exists and happens elsewhere. So what ever questions he has about it should be answered by that.

    Maybe it's all girls because they've got them cooking in there too? Hot girls can wield a spatula too, don't let 'em fool ya.

    Ah, see this is what I wanted to know! I was more curious if this was a franchise-wide phenomenon, or if it was specific to the one here. In this case I'm guessing it's just the case of a douchebag manager, though I still wonder, because we always have good service, if it's just coincidence.

    I prefer to have an attractive server. That being said, I certainly don't want average or ugly people who have the propensity for being a good server to be turned down for a job based on their looks. Especially because, in the end, how they look is going to have zero effect on how often I visit an establishment, as I appreciate a good ugly server much more than a bad attractive one.

    So, I'm not really complaining as much as I'm being curious.

    No I hear ya on that one. It was more or less a general statement rather then a question to/about your post.

    My Buffalo wild wings is pretty diverse in terms of what the females look like, hair color, race, etc. etc... and their are even male servers there, so it's a deifnite case of YMMV with that one.

    Aha! More evidence!

    Well, it doesn't matter anymore. I totally left my debit card there on Wednesday like a moron. They kep it in a locked, safe place, and asked for an ID from me before giving it back to me today, instead of letting all their customers "put it all on that dipshit's card", or raffling it off with a bottle of Blazin sauce.

    I will no longer question your dubious hiring practices, Buffalo Wild Wings! Your willingness to be decent to me, in a way that most other businesses would probably mirror, absolves you of any preconceived notions of moral indecency in your selection of applicants!
