    ABSTRACT: Trained 16 teams of 25–70 yr old customers (1 male and 1 female on each team) to monitor 162 salesclerks in 2 department stores to determine whether or not men received more prompt service than women. The sex of the clerk, sex of the department, and type of store were the main effects. Results show that men do receive service priority, with 63% of sales personnel serving these customers before the female customers. This percentage held up across the range of conditions studied, and a follow-up interview with salesclerks indicated that sex-role stereotyping was partially responsible for the observed disparity in service.
