Besides dancing for Mr Mistoffelees the strangest thing I had to do was draw pictures of what customer service meant and then stand up and talk about it.

On a one to one basis I wouldn't do it in an interview but at some of our training events every one danced to wind down a bit. We all laughed at each other :D

that even major retailers aren't immune to a bit of plain old moon-howling, barking madness.

Would YOU want to work for a company like that?

I employ people for their abilities in what I will be paying them for and that doesn't include dancing.

I take people on mostly through word of mouth or through business contacts. That way we often get the right person first time, we sometimes make them do a test, but that's so we know their level of competence & can offer training once they start.
