Graduate was made to dance at job interview

My question to you in relation to this is: would you do this to get a job?

Alan Bacon was asked to dance at an interview

Currys 'make job interviewees dance to Daft Punk'

A jobseeker has criticised Currys after he was made to dance to Daft Punk at an interview.

Recent graduate Alan Bacon was hoping to be considered for a sales assistant position at a Cardiff megastore, but at the group interview he was shocked when he and the other applicants present were told to come up with and perform their own moves.

"I think everyone initially thought it was a joke," the 21-year-old told BBC News. "But they were serious. All professionalism went out of the window.

"I just felt so embarrassed and uncomfortable. I ended up dancing to 'Around the World' by Daft Punk, doing rubbish robotics in my suit in front of a group of strangers.

"I told my dad it was like a scene out of The Office. I would have walked out but I need a job."

Bacon added: "Another middle-aged guy looked really upset as he danced to a rap song."

A Currys spokesperson apologised for the interview, stating: "Regrettably, the store in question did not follow our official recruitment processes on this specific occasion.

"We are currently investigating those members of the store who held the recruitment session.

"We are very sorry to those interviewees impacted on this occasion, and would like to invite them back to attend an official interview, where they will be given a proper opportunity to demonstrate how they can contribute to our business."
