You can mention the specifics regarding why you’re declining the position, like salary, the company’s attitude, you took a different position, etc., but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. If you do choose to give your reasoning, though, Adrian Granzella Larson at The Muse recommends you keep it brief. A quick sentence will do. There’s no need to mention any of the things you didn’t like about the people you met, the workplace, or the company itself. You can also offer referrals if you have any, but it’s not necessary unless they ask. Remember, short and sweet.
