Hypothetical case:



Two people apply for the same job. Both of them are equally qualified for the job. One applicant is a man and the other applicant is a woman. Should the woman be given preference?

No.

Jobs shouldn't be given on the basis of gender. If they're equally qualified then it should depend on the quality of their answers at interview, or whatever else they use to judge.

No and I would not take the job if the only reason I got the job was because I am a woman and they need to fill quota. People need to be hired based on merit. If both are equally qualified, then perhaps it should come down to how the interview went but never because one needs to fill a quota.

No. I think it should be based on the qualifications, military background (veterans preference), previous job experience, interview answers, and who you think will mesh well with the rest of your staff. I do not think, just because female, its an automatic shoe in. That bothers me!

Well, say the job is for wait staff at Hooters, and the woman is a hot 20-something with D cups and the male is a 65 year old morbidly obese guy who smells like a rotten piece of meat.

Extreme example, yes, but it should hammer home that a blanket answer cannot be provided here.

Why on earth would a fat old obese guy be applying for a job at Hooters?

"Why on earth would a woman be applying for a fireman job?" -Someone, circa 1955.

Maybe he wants to work there. Should he be disqualified from the profession because he is fat and male?

Considering it is Hooters, where women waitress, and that is specified in the job descriptions, yes I would say he is disqualified.

We do have this restaurant or this type of restaurant where I live so I am curious, do men work there as well or just women?

If the man was in really good shape and handsome, do they hire men in those circumstances?

Maybe he's a perve, maybe he just wants a job that pays money and they are short on the ground.

I haven't been to one in a long time so I can't say. I don't ever recall seeing a man waiting tables there though. I'm sure men work in management and in the kitchen, etc.

How about a younger obese guy?

Would he still get the job?
