A Lady Got Rejected for a Job Because Her Voicemail Greeting Was Too Jokey

Is this a legit reason to reject someone for a job? Or did the guy overreact?


A woman in South Carolina named Zanaya Jones applied for a job at a grocery store a while back. And the manager tried to call her to offer her an interview.


But he got her voicemail, and decided to cancel the offer . . . because her greeting message was too JOKEY.


It starts with her singing, "Wassup, wassup, wassup." Then she says the normal "leave your name" stuff, but ends it in a jokey way too.


He left her a message, and said that if you apply for a job, you should make sure your voicemail is more professional than that. Then he said there was no need for her to call back, and hung up.


It happened back in 2020, but it's going viral now after she posted both audio clips on TikTok. (Here's his message, and here's her outgoing voicemail.)


Some people think he was right. Others don't think it was THAT unprofessional, and say Zanaya dodged a bullet, because he's obviously a jerk. (A few people also suggested that she sounds Black, so race may have played a role.)
