Woman Fails To Get Poundland Job After Drawing A Shotgun
Flip open any newspaper, and you’ll be met with a awkwardly stern face glaring at you from the page.
They’ll be moaning about some kind of massive injustice. Maybe they bit into raw brain matter at KFC. Maybe it’s a little kid with a controversial tie-dye mullet who’s literally been booted out of his Food Tech lesson.
Or maybe, as is the case with Miss Mercedes Cray, they've been rejected for a job at Poundland on the basis of a really bad drawing.
Top effort with the glare, there.
The job-seeker, 23, from Gillingham, Kent, was asked to draw a shield featuring things that were important to her life.
She said: ‘I was one of four who didn’t get their name called out and then the interviewer came over and told us we had not got the position based on the last test we did as it was not to their standards.
‘I can’t see why I would need drawing skills to work behind a till and they told us at the beginning it didn’t matter if we couldn’t draw.
‘But then they told me I didn’t get the job because I failed that test.’
Let's have a look at the drawing shall we?
Yeah. That’s a shotgun.
All credit to Poundland, who could have completely mugged her off in their reply (because, looking past the gun stuff, she's still really wank at drawing), but instead went with:‘Our selection process takes into account a number of factors with the aim of ensuring we offer roles to the right candidates.
‘Unfortunately on this occasion, Ms Cray did not meet the essential criteria for the role.’
