Default new hire for pride of america

Hi.
i was recently hired from San Francisco to work as utility for the Pride of America. I am waiting for my TWIC ID and medical to clear and have most of paperwork done.
I am worried about the physical requirement that is needed. I am a few pounds overweight and on the borderline of being obese. Has anyone been booted out because of unable to meet with physical requirements?
Working for the cruise line is my dream job so i am really worried about this.
p.s. i'm hooking up with a gym soon so at least i'm doing some effort to shed some pounds.
thanks if anyone can enlighten me on this.

My grandson ended up being rejects because of his weight. They did tell him that after he loses the weight he can reapply.

Hi,

My friend worked there and was not booted out. She is a big girl They are plenty of people who are overweight from what she told me. She said the training was hard but she made it. I got hired to, I missed the session in San Fran for Nov and went to LA for the Dec one! I got hired and will also be doing utility! I was placed on active hold last month on the 7th. I am ready to go! Am working with Brandy Janzen. Hope that helps but you could get more help from Facebook there are groups from people who work there and got answers, also go on youtube. Am on a diet to btw trying to lose 20lbs!

Good luck to all of you. I have noticed there are very few crew members on NCL or any other line that are more than a few lbs overweight, similara to the airlines: you might see them once in awhile.
