    The store I worked at they were hardly ever promoted and no one ever started conversations with them unless they started first. Most of them looked depressed as hell. Their was one guy that would litterly start crying whenever he saw a girl hug another guy associate....and he would say" Why can't I have that (a hug)?"

    aww. that sucks.  
     
    but then again, we don't hate on overweight people, really.  
     
    it's really not our fault that their self-esteem is low to begin with. shiet. I'd like to be a little plumper.  
     
    if I were fatter I would like myself and I would portray myself as the person that I am inside. if they fail at realizing that their outside does not constitute their opportunities nor who they are inside, maybe it would be easier for them to give a shot at fixing that and seeing what happens.  
     
    people with low self-esteem do not get upper positions. if they don't have the self-esteem for it they probably do not have the ability to handle the interpersonal relationships and lack the skills they need for higher positions. it's got nothing to do with overweightness. at san diego, the store manager is a little bigger but that didn't stop him from being store manager. I know a lot of bigger-size people above me in rank, too. so...

    Sean is fat simply because he has more money to buy food. He has better meals than most of us.

    Agree with this.  
     
    asdf:Sean is fat simply because he has more money to buy food. He has better meals than most of us.
     
     
    Actually, usually weight IS related to income, but oppositely. Here in scottsdale you will find 1% overweight...ness... and yet in the rest of phoenix especially the ghetto areas, you have a far higher rate. Maybe it's to do with McDonalds, or maybe its because they get lipo. Who cares.

    Ummm ... no I dont think so.. if Jack Black had the same amount as a walmart cashier but was still famous, girls would still like him. Witty outgoing people are the best. I am not part of this though because I realize I'm incredibly too wierd to judge what other women think about fat guys. I did have a friend who dated this gigantic (I do not say that lightly... Jack black if he was 1029928X his size) guy for well over a year and she is one of my best looking friends. And smart, but I think only I have ever witness that part of her.Superhero!

    Total agreement here. That being said, people with huge self-esteem don't generally get promoted either, because no one likes a no-it-all who is so cocky and arrogant they don't think they can make a mistake. I used to be like that, always thought I was bound to be the best and usually was, then I got the Fried job for some reason I can't recall and everyone who knew me beforehand agrees that my self-esteem took a huge nose-dive. So now that my Fried days are over, I'm working on finding that wonderful middle-ground that I could never find before. I consider Fried a learning experience and now I'm moving on, or trying to anyway...stupid CA job market.  
     
    On another note, there are people who are fat and happy, it does exist, you know.

    Back when I used to work at Fry's, there was this guy named Joe from store 23. He was so overweight, that a secret shopper couldn't see the demo pack around his waist and reported it. He was put on probation. Eventually he transferd from sales to the cage, then quit.

    Big Joe. He was in Audio Sales in 2009, then transfered to the cage. You might not be able to picture him, but if it helps, he was the one always making that stupid wookie noise. I think he was only there for about 5-6 months or so.

    FrysAnon12: Isn't there a DDM for the service department that is incredibly overweight? Explain that one.
    In my experience, Fry's has never been the place to look if you're trying to find an example of a workplace with "fit" employees. I think every person in my department (with the exception of me and one other guy) were probably over 180 (I'm 135 and the other guy was about 140). Most tended to be in the 200's range.  
     
    I think too often though, people who are medically overweight, will point to those occasional people who are morbidly obese and say "well I'm not fat like that person!" as if they're somehow a healthy body weight because they don't get carried around on a pallet jack.  
     
    Speaking of which, I saw Sean Archer inside McDonalds not too long ago while I was waiting for my order in the drive through line (it was right before he quit Fry's)... so I don't think his size was due simply to having more money to eat "better" meals... unless Big Macs are considered "better meals".
