Essentially, he rejects the job out of pride. Willy is too proud, and is confused as to why Charley is successful in the first place, since Willy does not really respect Charley has a businessman.

Willy is not really arrogant, but his sense of pride is too strong to allow him to accept a job from Charley. However, he's not too proud to accept 'loans' of $50 a week from Charley.
