Alan Bacon, 21, a recent university graduate, said he was interviewing for a job at a Currys store when he was asked to dance as part of the process, the BBC reported Friday.
"I ended up dancing to 'Around the World' by Daft Punk, doing rubbish robotics in my suit in front of a group of strangers," Bacon said.
He said he was not the only interviewee asked to perform.
"Another middle-aged guy looked really upset as he danced to a rap song," he said.
A Currys spokesman apologized and said the interviewees were being asked back for new interviews.
"Regrettably, the store in question did not follow our official recruitment processes on this specific occasion," the spokesman said. "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."
Bacon said he decided not to repeat his interview.
