DIY giant B&Q came under fire today after candidates at job interviews for van drivers were asked to dance and pull funny faces.
Several jobseekers at an interview at the firm's store in Norwich faced the bizarre request to dance.
The Jackson 5's hit Blame It On The Boogie was played and some were photographed by managers.
One of those interviewed said he felt like an idiot, as well as being embarrassed by the unusual request.
Ed Blissett, an official of the GMB union, which has members at B&Q, said: "This is bizarre. It seems to reduce jobs our members do to some kind of joke."
B&Q said: "The Norwich store was looking to recruit a large group of store-based staff.
"The candidates were offered tea and coffee when they arrived and this was followed by a light-hearted exercise before the formal interview process began.
"We made it clear to all the candidates that they did not have to take part if they did not feel comfortable."
