Teenager left shocked after being rejected from a job with 'laughing emoji'

A teenager was left devastated after applying for a job, going for the interview, just to get an insensitive rejection text ONE MINUTE after leaving.

Megan Dixon, 18, applied to work at a restaurant chain, Miller and Carter to get a little extra cash while attending college.

She went for the interview, hosted by the branch's assistant manager Shantel Wesson, but when she left she received a text simply saying "it's a no" literally moments after exiting the building.

When she asked why it was a no. Shantel responded, seemingly mocking the young woman.

Megan said of the messages:

“At the end of the interview, I asked when I would hear back. She told me it was never more than a few days and she had my email. But I got the texts a few seconds after leaving.
“I was shocked. The least she should have given me was some proper feedback.
“And the laughing face emoji was so unprofessional. It was a really bitchy thing to do.”

Miller and Carter have claimed the messages were sent in error and were intended for the branch's manager.

Shantel declined to comment.
