Megan Dixon, 18, is a high school student who was going for a part-time waitress job at a steakhouse in Leicestershire, England.
She was interviewed by assistant manager and was “shocked” and “angry” at the harsh response to her application.
Dixon knew the interview didn’t go well..
Upon arrival, she said the interviewer didn’t have a copy of Dixon’s CV and she “thought it was strange she didn’t shake my hand,” Dixon told MailOnline.
“She had her phone out for the entire time, I didn’t really feel like I was in an interview.”
But she wasn't expecting to find out like this...
Immediately after the interview, Dixon received a text message, which said simply: "It's a no x".
Then, after asking 'why?', Dixon received: "Just not engaging. And answers we're 'like' basic."
(Ironically... The interviewer doesn't know the difference between 'we're' and 'were'.)
This reply was accompanied by the laughing-so-hard-I'm-crying emoji.
Dixon posted a screenshot of the humiliating exchange on Twitter.
"I can maybe understand why my answers were basic, but I haven't really had many interviews before," Dixon said. "She was asking about my proudest moment but I'm only 18 so it's not like I can say my kid or my marriage."
"To text me a minute after I'd walked out saying that is nasty," she continued.
"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."

The company has also issued a response, and promised to investigate further.
"We can’t apologise enough to Megan. It was never our intention to be disrespectful or upset her in any way," a spokesperson for the company said.
"The texts were sent in error and were intended for our manager, not the candidate."
Clearly, this unsuccessful job interview says more about the company than it does about the candidate.
