Alan Bacon had done plenty of research and preparation for the role, and felt well-versed in the products he would be expected to sell. Instead, he found himself “doing rubbish robotics” to the strains of Daft Punk alongside other embarrassed jobseekers when he attempted to secure a post at a south Wales branch of Currys.

From opaque questions to humiliating group exercises, the modern job interview can throw up some onerous situations. Share your worst job interview experiences in the thread below.

I was once asked “Do you write?” in an interview, but misheard it as “Do you ride?” (both of which were odd questions for the job), so I went on this long meandering speech about how yes, I do ride.
