    UK ∙ Company apologizes for making applicants dance to Daft Punk during job interview

    Company Sorry for Turning Job Interview Into a Daft Punk Dance-Off. (Gawker, w/BBC video)

    One of the would-be assistant managers told the BBC he and nine other hopefuls were broken up into teams by store staff at Currys' Cardiff location and ordered to "dance with each other" in a back room.

    "I think everyone initially thought it was a joke," Alan Bacon, 21, told BBC News, "but they were serious." "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."
    After news of the daft dance-terview got out, Currys quickly issued a statement saying the Cardiff store had gone rogue, and apologized.

    There is absolutely no reason an appliance company should be asking job applicants to dance.
    Just my opinion
