Graduate ‘made to dance like David Brent’ at job interview

A university graduate claims a job interview at Currys turned into “a scene out of The Office” when he was asked to dance to a Daft Punk song.

Alan Bacon, 21, claims he was left “humiliated” after being told to dance to Around the World in front of a group of interviewers at the Cardiff branch of the electrical store.

Bacon thought a job at Currys would suit him given his love of cameras, but he was left “incredulous” when asked to do a dance.

“I just felt so embarrassed and uncomfortable,” said Mr Bacon. “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.

“Another middle aged guy looked really upset as he danced to a rap song.

“I’ve been to quite a few job interviews and have never had to do anything like it before.”

Currys have since apologised and insisted the dance segment of the interview is not part of its official recruitment processes, according to BBC Wales online.
