BBC - Major retailer humiliates graduate in group dance at interview

A while ago I posted about interviewers asking stupid "Blind Date" style questions at interviews (along the "if you were a ...blank... what would it be and why" theme), now the latest extreme technique is this story about a group dance at an interview for a major retailer.

A campaign group spokeswoman commented on the "more innovative ways to interview people when there's more competition and people are having to jump through more and more hoops to get a job", but thought this was "outrageous". Companies class these as "team building exercises", people with Asperger's often get criticised for not being "team players", now I don't think it is that they can't work in teams, but certainly find this type of exercise difficult.
