    I got rejected from Sainsbury's literally about 52 seconds after I'd submitted the application.
    I spent about 2 hours filling it all in and then got an automated email pretty much after I'd submitted saying something along the lines of "We are afraid we cannot process your application further but good luck in your future job search bla bla"

    The fact that it was 4am in the morning when I was applying as well made it totally bizarre.

    Rejected from being a sales assistant at age 19. Uni dropout and I'd never worked sales before. They said I was 'overqualified'. I think it's because I had to explain the meaning of the word 'ethos' to the manager who interviewed me, because he thought I was 'trying to sound clever.'

    He thought I made up the word.
    yep been there i asked what microchip and programming suite they used the guy didn't know and said oh the usual one I pushed "well whats that Atmel Microchip Texas?" I didn't get the job because i was "overqualified", I made him look stupid.
