TGI Fridays interviewer asked 18-year-old if he would "rather watch parents have sex for a year or join in" during job interview

A teenager has spoken out after being asked inappropriate questions at TGI Fridays during a job interview.

The interviewer reportedly asked if the applicant, who would like to remain anonymous, would ‘rather watch his parents have sex for a year or join in just for the start'.

Other questions included ‘would you rather s* a brick or cry glass?' during the interview for a part-time position at TGI Fridays in Derby's intu centre.

Speaking to the Derby Telegraph, the interviewee said: "I'd already had a successful phone interview and I was really looking forward to this. It was a company I had heard good things about and I thought this job would suit me. The first question I was asked was whether I would rather watch my parents have sex for a year or join in just for the start. I was absolutely gob-smacked.

"Before I'd had chance to respond I was asked whether I would rather eat chocolate flavoured s* or s*** flavoured chocolate. He seemed to think I would find it funny and join in. I thought it was disgusting, sick and pathetic."

The interviewer has been suspended following the incident.

A spokesperson at TGI Fridays Derby told The Caterer: "As someone who loves being part of the Friday's family we are all really disappointed here with what's happened and in no way does it reflect our Friday's values ."

In a statement, TGI Fridays said: "Fridays offers an industry-leading recruitment process, and this incident fell severely below our high standards.

"The questions posed during the interview with the candidate are absolutely not part of TGI Fridays' interview process and we were very disappointed to learn of this incident. Immediate action was taken, with the person involved suspended.

"We have apologised to the candidate for the experience and offered them the opportunity to re-interview with us, which we hope they will take up."
