The company is, however, sticking to its guns and a spokesman explained that the move was based on statistical research rather than superstition.
'A statistical study indicated that almost all of our best employees across Austria have one of the five star signs.
'We only decided to continue with that system and hire the best workers,' the spokesman said.
An investigation by Austrian authorities showed that there was nothing illegal in choosing the employees according to their star signs, as there was no discrimination according to existing laws about gender, age, racial and other equality.
