No..I would think not..because if they single you out based on that, it is biased..not to mention discrimination

It shouldn't matter as long as you have the job skills and the personality they want. Good looks usually only matter if your a sales person. Plus you wouldn't want a job that goes by looks alone. Because not all of us were blessed by the good looks gene pool.

When interviewing one should present themselves in proper attire. A clean. neat appearance goes a long ways.
