Woman Sent Home from an Interview for Not Dressing Suitably

Rosie Reilly has been shutdown in a recent job interview but for one very unusual reason.

According to, Reilly dressed up for an interview in an outfit that made her feel confident but told she hadn’t dressed conservatively enough.   

You get your CV pimped out, you practice your answers and pick out an outfit that makes you feel confident.

“I’d spent at least an hour making sure my hair and makeup and outfit was perfect and presentable.” Rosie said.

“After being told to take a seat, and watching the interviewer dash about a bit with other issues going on that day, I was taken to a room where the interview started.”

“The interviewer asked some general questions about what I’m doing at the moment and what previous jobs I’ve had.”


“After scribbling some notes down, she said: “The second half of the interview takes place on the shop floor. However I don’t think that you’re dressed conservatively enough to go on the shop floor, so we’ll arrange to do the second part of the interview another day”.

‘We agreed on Thursday at 11am, but I won’t be attending!

The interview was meant to last an hour, but only took ten minutes.

‘I left the store slightly bewildered. It wasn’t until I was on the bus heading back to my girlfriend’s place that what had happened suddenly hit me and I burst into tears.

‘Naturally, I took to social media to vent about what had happened, then over the next 24hrs everything went a bit wild! I’ve had so much love and support from people I’ve never met or spoken to, which has really lifted me up and boosted my confidence.’
