A HUGE recruiter claims that her “thin” boss forced her to tell a size 16 job seeker that she didn’t get the role because he thought she was “too fat.” “.
Faye Angeletta has criticized her “horrible” manager for making her deliver the news – after he called the potential employer “not the thinnest”.
Faye, director of TDM Recruitment, launched a candidate for one of her clients for a new home sales role.
The company’s director, 32, branded the boss a “slim and horrible person” after he sent back a response saying he was afraid of the gallery’s stairs.
He even said he was worried that the candidate would have a “heart attack” due to her “size” even though she was just recovering from a battle with cancer.
Faye then pulled the woman out of the running and explained that she couldn’t be open to bullying because of her looks.
However, the employer claims the candidate then demanded to know what “honest feedback” was from the interview, so she felt she had to tell her the brutal remarks.
Posting online to shame his boss’s “unbelievable” reaction, Faye was inundated with comments from other employers who called the bloke “absolutely disgusting”.
Faye, from Stratford, East London, said: “I’ve been recruiting for seven years. Unbelievable.
“That message went through a text message. I absolutely can’t believe he wrote it in writing.
“On the phone, he said ‘well, you know, I’m worried for the stairs that we’re in the gallery or she’s having a heart attack’.
“He’s a horrible, slimy man. He laughs on the phone. This woman is a size 16 – the average size of a woman in the UK. It really isn’t real.”
Faye refused to bite her tongue when giving feedback to the woman, trying to encourage her not to “re-engage” with future clients.
She even advises clients in her social media messages to use “model agencies” instead of hiring if looks mean a lot to them.
Faye added: “I am looking for the best person for the job. Right now, across the UK, there is a shortage of talent.
“I told him ‘I just want you to realize that your reasons for not choosing this candidate are wrong.
“There will be criticism and I have to filter what was told to me to give it back to the client. This woman has had to battle cancer. She’s actually on steroids.
“I have a candidate who hasn’t showered in a few days. People need to know why they didn’t get the job and what they could improve on.
“You could say ‘just make sure before the interview you look in the mirror and make sure your hair is neat or you don’t have coffee on your lips'”.
“But with this person, they’re overweight. It’s my job to make sure this candidate doesn’t try to reconnect with this person.
“Actually he didn’t say no to her. Basically he said he was still interested but she was too fat.
“If I put that person in that job, I’ll feel responsible for possible bullying. I can’t put her in a job where she’ll be judged on her looks. totally not ok.
“She said ‘I want to know honestly what the feedback is.’ When I told her, she just laughed and said ‘are you kidding?'”
Faye also testified that one woman was recently turned down because she was getting married and the client was concerned she would get pregnant and need time off.
In her post, she even claimed the candidates were rejected for having “garlic breath” and “stroking a cat” during the entire call.
Others who saw the post criticized the boss, with one calling the whole experience “appalling”.
Rosie Christie said: “I would love to see photos of this guy. Is he a good candidate for the cover of Men’s Health? Usually people who don’t score 10/10 will make comments like like this”.
Caroline Fertnig added: “Unfortunately I can’t name and it’s a shame. There seems to be a shortage of good new salespeople and a shame for anyone working for such a tool!”
