Police were called when a woman refused to leave a job interview after being turned down.
The candidate lost her temper and would not budge for 90 minutes following the unsuccessful meeting in Manchester city centre on Wednesday morning.
Officers were called to the ‘sit-in’ shortly after 11am.
Staff said the applicant told them: “Go on! Call the police!” and refused to move for about 90 minutes.
When police arrived at the scene she had disappeared.
It’s believed the woman was turned down after failing to bring her passport to the interview, which had been asked for on the original application.
GMP City Centre tweeted after the incident: “Odd job 11am. Woman who attended job interview staged 90 minute ‘sit-in’ after being told she wasn’t being considered. Left upon our arrival.”
