Job interviews are a part of modern life and sooner or later we all have to do them. They usually involve being asked a list of questions or doing a short presentation.
But some companies go a bit further and ask the interviewee to do embarrassing and humiliating things that are completely unrelated to the job.
Rob and Finn discuss 'odd' job interviews, and talk about one man who was asked to dance as part of his selection process.
This week's question:

a) A waitress
b) A school dinner lady
c) A petrol station assistant
Listen to the programme to find out the answer.
