Graduate ‘told to dance’ during Currys job interview

A university graduate says he was left “humiliated” after being asked to dance to a Daft Punk song during a job interview at Currys.

Alan Bacon – who was applying for the role of sales assistant at the Cardiff store - told the BBC that he and nine other job applicants were taken into a room before being asked to dance.

Describing it as “like a scene out of The Office”, Mr Bacon, 21, said: "I think everyone initially thought it was a joke. But they were serious. All professionalism went out of the window.

"I'd spent the past week researching the company and looking forward to being able to express myself and talk about what I love doing.

"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."

Currys has since apologised for the incident, admitting that dancing is not part of its official recruitment processes.
