Teen Gets Rejected For Job, Never Expected To Find Out Like This

Sometimes it is just not appropriate to communicate by text. A student in the UK named Megan Dixon was interviewed by assistant manager Shantel Wesson for a waitress position at a Miller and Carter steakhouse opening the following week in Enderby, Leicestershire.

In a stunning surprise, the 18-year-old was shocked to receive a text message barely five minutes after the interview was over, saying:

“It's a no x”.

Disappointed Dixon texted back, wanting to know why she had not been chosen, and Wesson responded: “Just not engaging. And answers we're "like" basic.”

Unbelievably, Wesson then sent an emoji of a face laughing so hard that they're crying.

Megan commented in an interview that she was very surprised at the lack of professionalism by the management of the steakhouse chain. 

Dixon went on to say: “I thought it was strange she didn't shake my hand, I thought she would have been more professional. She had her phone out for the entire time, I didn't really feel like I was in an interview.”

When the short interview was over, Megan asked when a decision on the job would be made, and Shantel indicated she would contact her in a few days.

But Dixon got a text from Wesson less than five minutes later.
Dixon also told the reporter: “I was so shocked and I wish I'd gone back in there. My mum was so angry - these big companies can't treat people like that. It has definitely put me off the company. For people who might not have any self-confidence as well, it could really upset them.”

According to Dixon, the unprofessional Wesson did not even have a copy of her CV at the interview.

Of note, Miller and Carter published a statement noting the incident was an accident: “We can’t apologize enough to Megan. It was never our intention to be disrespectful or upset her in any way. The texts were sent in error and were intended for our manager, not the candidate.”
