A furious mum has hit out at the owners of a pub after her teenage daughter was "brought to tears" during a job interview.

"Disgusted" Donna Williams has hit back at The Stockton Arms Hotel, in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, after 18-year-old Dionne Kidd’s interview was cut short on Tuesday, TeessideLive reports.

The 37-year-old told how her daughter was left "sobbing" after the landlady "made comments about her skirt" and questioned her on previous waitressing experience.

But one of the bar's owners has responded, claiming the teen was wearing the "shortest skirt I’ve ever seen" and "looked like she was going nightclubbing".

"It wasn’t appropriate for an interview – it was very, very short," licensee Andrew Mark said.

Although, he admitted: "Maybe we could have handled it a bit better."

Following the interview for the bar position, mum-of-two Donna said she was "absolutely disgusted" at the way her daughter was "treated in a job interview" as she was "brought to tears".

She added: "If you didn’t like what she was wearing as you mentioned as soon as she walked in, why not just end the interview there."

Andrew said: "She came in the shortest skirt I’ve ever seen.

"She looked like she was going nightclubbing. It wasn’t appropriate for an interview – it was very, very short."

He added: "She couldn’t provide a reference so we said we’re going to have to cut it short. The girl got upset."
