A woman has taken to social media to claim that she lost out on receiving a job after her potential employer heard her outgoing voicemail message.

Zanaya Jones - who uses the handle @zanayajones8 on TikTok - recently uploaded a video to the social media platform with the caption: "That time I didn't get hired because of my voicemail."

Jones had applied for a job at the Harris Teeter supermarket chain, but when somebody from the company called back to speak to the hopeful applicant, they were left unimpressed by her outgoing voicemail message.

In her first video, Jones simply shared the manager's reaction to her voicemail message. Unimpressed by what he had just heard, he told Jones: "Yes, Miss Jones, I recommend if you apply for a job and you expect somebody to call you that you have a more appropriate response on your voicemail.

"So, thank you for applying and no need to give us a call back here at Harris Teeter. Thank you, ma'am. Bye."

Check out Jones' first video below:

The first video amassed over 16.4 million views, with many TikToker users taking to the comments section calling for Jones to reveal what her voicemail message was.

"Now you know we need to hear your outgoing voicemail message," one comment reads.

Jones happily obliged the multiple requests and uploaded a second video revealing her outgoing voicemail message.

What do you think of Jones' message? Listen below:

"Wassup, wassup, wassup," the hilarious message begins. "Wassup ya’ll it’s your girl Zanaya [...] I’m sorry I couldn’t answer the phone. Please leave your name, number, yeah you know all that."

After sharing her bubbly voicemail message, TikTokers were overwhelmingly in support of Jones, with many people saying she had "dodged a bullet".

"This voicemail is childish but it shouldn’t have stopped you from getting a job. He’s miserable. Be glad you didn’t get hired," one TikToker commented.

Another added: "It’s not even bad! Working for someone that uptight would have been a nightmare!"

A third wrote: "You dodged a bullet [in my opinion]. That’s a huge red flag on the company’s part. Any company that obsessed over being 'professional' outside work is a bad one."

I couldn't agree more - Jones sounds like she'd be a lot of fun to work with and bring a lot of personality to any role.

But what do you think of the voicemail message? Let us know in the comments!
