This is a question Job Interview Disasters

The boss showed me the shop floor, complete with loose floor tiles, out-of-date equipment and prospective colleagues eyeing me like a raw steak. "Christ, what a craphole", I said. I think that's the moment I blew it. Tell us how you didn't get the job.

So back in the early 2000s a company was advertising a position as a web developer
I'd been out of work for a while, so I applied and they sent me a .psd file and asked me to turn it into a functioning DHTML site. I did a site-specific Google search on them, found their test server, downloaded the site that they'd already built for the client, cleaned up the code, zipped it and emailed it straight back to them.

Apparently they didn't want someone with initiative.
