We have a framework for recruiting candidates and use application forms.  We do ask for reasons why people left jobs. 

We screen candidates according to the skill set required as well as the way their career history hangs together and what the personal statement says.  We screen out those that clearly don't demonstrate they have read the job profile correctly.  We don't discriminate against any candidate and give equal opportunity to people of any age.  Indeed we have people who are very young and people who are well past the standard retirement age working for us. 

Job hopping is something we are careful about in candidates, but it wouldn't bar such a person from being called to interview.  We would ask more detailed questions in these circumstances.

I'm a job hopper for the most part. I stay at places 3-4 years and then get bored. Is what it is. As long as they allow me to keep learning and expanding my skill set, I would stay.

Three or four years is a good space of time.  A couple of years at the start of a career is ok too while you are getting experience and finding your niche.  Any less and it can become hard to really learn and grow a job.  It depends on the industry.

Countrigal - Ever see those shows where they take a beautiful woman and put her in a fat suit?  Of course she is treated different.  It's not right it's not fair.  I agree that we really haven't come very far in equality.   I've been an admin for over 20 years, worked in several industries and have probably seen every type of screening (or lack of screening) possible for new employees.  Consider that most jobs are receiving thousands of resumes, having anything that might be considered a flaw will red flag your resume.
