For DirecTV TV services which include DVRs and receivers, weight requirement for position When I applied for the Satellite Installation Technician position at DirectTV, I was asked if I was under 250lbs at the time I was under the impression I was 238 as I had gone to the hospital for a surgery a month and a half prior. I got an interview and recieved an email an hour after completing said interview offering the job. I accepted and filled out the forms for a background check and completed a drug screening. Both which I'm confident I passed. I then completed a physical exam and passed with no problems, but when weighed i came out to 268lbs. Would they refuse to hire me or would they give me the chance to lose the weight.
