Bad dress, poor manners stall new generation of workers (access required)

By Sam Boykin CHARLOTTE — Paula Harvey could hardly believe her eyes when the job applicant strolled into the office. At the time, she was the human resources director for a Charlotte steel company, and she was interviewing a candidate for a purchasing assistant. “She had on the tightest, lowest-cut black dress I had ever seen,” Harvey recalled. “She looked like a streetwalker.” Harvey said that before she even brought the scantily clad applicant back for an interview, several of her male co-workers had called her office. “They all said, ‘Paula, you got to hire that gal.’” Harvey wasn’t quite as impressed. “It was the quickest interview I’ve had in a while. Needless to say, she didn’t get the job.”
