    He might be charismatic and charmed his way in? So it could be looks... But more as well? Charisma can really work wonders.

    I would be ****ed to some degree... I would just hope nobody expected me to do his job for him.

    Your manager told you that they personally hired someone because they were good looking??

    Sorry, don't buy it.

    Also, did you apply for the role?

    Nope they didn't apply for it, the boss offered the job to them...... And I do not blame anyone for not believing me, if someone had have said this happened I wouldn't have believed them either..... I really thought the only way to get places was hard work... But then it happened..

    Was this guy already in the company? Otherwise how was he offered the job if he didn't apply for it. Unless it's a friend of his who needed a job. ..that happens alk the time

    If your manager told you directly, at least you know what you need to do to get promoted there. Put down those papers and head to your nearest beautician!! Charge it to your company credit card, and if you are questioned, just say the expense is in line with the company's policy on career development.

    Your assuming that person was hired for their looks but you don't actually know that. I doubt that would actually be the case.

    Do you work in a face-to-face business?

    Is this employee always impeccably dressed & maintained?

    Sounds like what people initially have said about my brother. He's what some apparently call attractive (I think he looks silly but I guess that's sister perspectives) but he has insane charisma that just gets him everywhere. He's a great worker though, so maybe that's the deal with this guy?
    I would be peeved if I were you but there's prob other reasons why he got the job.
