Employer Turns Teen Down, She Never Expected To Get This Response As To Why

Megan Dixon interviewed by assistant manager Shantel Wesson for a position at a new branch of Miller and Carter steakhouse soon to open in Enderby, Leicestershire.

The student when she got a text message just a couple of minutes after the interview finished, which said: 'It's a no x'.

Dixon replied asking why she had been turned down, and the interviewer Shantel Wesson responded: “Just not engaging. And answers we're "like" basic.”

Shantel followed that up with an emoji showing someone laughing so hard that they're crying.

In an interview, Megan explained she couldn’t believe how unprofessional the steakhouse chain was. 

Talking about her experience with the interview, she commented: “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.”

Afterward, Megan inquired when she might hear about the position, and Shantel replied she would be in touch in a few days.

Less than five minutes later, Dixon got the text from Wesson.

She said: 'I can maybe understand why my answers were basic, but I haven't really had many interviews before. 

Dixon went on to note: “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.”

Megan also said that Wesson did not have a copy of the teen's CV at the interview and was drinking coffee during the whole time.

A spokesman for Miller and Carter released a statement to the media:

“We can’t apologise 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.”

The steakhouse says an investigation of the incident is underway.
