Want A Retail Job? Dance For It

So you think you can sell? U.K. electronics retailer Currys apologized last week for requiring sales associate job applicants to dance. The chain said it was investigating a group interview for sales jobs at a superstore in Cardiff, Wales, that included a team-building exercise in which applicants had to dance to pop and rap music. That's not part of formal recruitment procedures, the chain said. "I think everyone initially thought it was a joke," one applicant told the BBC. "I ended up dancing to 'Around the World' by Daft Punk, doing rubbish robotics in my suit in front of a group of strangers. Another middle-aged guy looked really upset as he danced to a rap song." Wait, isn't that pretty much how it always works on the dance floor? Story
