  • Depends on who is conducting the interview.

  • Maybe neither..........who knows! Maybe the larger woman because she'll be "more into work, and have a less active social life." Maybe the smaller one if the interviewer is male. Who really knows.

  • I agree with the others who said it depends on who is interviewing, It should be the larger lady who is more qualified for the job, but it doesnt always work that way,some people are shallow and base everything on looks

  • larger woman if a girl is interviewing bc girls r jealous and the skinny girl if a guy is interviewing

  • Job interviewers are professional people who have to answer to a committee or a supervisor for their decisions, and often have to confer with the committee, or at least a supervisor, before making their decision (and sometimes, it''s not their decision to make, just their job to interview). I would say the one with the best qualifications, regardless of her looks.

  • I worked for a consulting firm and was involved in the hiring practice and we always offered the job to the most qualified - didnt matter what size she was.
