Can One Fail An Interview Just Because One Is Too Fat? All Other Qualifications are Just Excellent.
I think it depends on what the job calls for. if the job is in fitness and health or in a slimming organization, then they may not want fat people at the front desk - believe this is an image thing to the organization.
Loads of companies will judge you by your looks even if it's nothing to do with the job you're looking into - it's just human nature. They might even be thinking about the possibility of you succumbing to illness if you're too big, which will cost them in sick pay.
No - a lot of people now are classified as overweight, so I really strongly doubt it. Consider getting some written feedback from the interviewer to see what areas may need improvement.
Unfortunately some people might be biased by appearance. There's not much you can do about that. When you go to an interview make sure you are fully prepared, dressed appropriately and ready to wow them.
Chemistry plays a role in interviews. You know that feeling when you meet someone and you just can't put your finger on why you don't like them but you don't. Some of the people you will interview with you will find you have good chemistry, others you won't. It might not have anything to do with weight.
Go into any interview well prepared and with a positive attitude. If you think it is going to go poorly then it will.
