The man, who doesn't want to be named, was after a part-time job at the American-themed restaurant in Derby's Intu Centre, but walked out mid-way through.

After some time, the 18-year-old says the staff member conducting the interview asked him whether he would rather watch his parents having sex for a year, or join in 'just for the start'.

After, the teenager, from the Chellaston area of Derby, says he was asked whether he would prefer to "s*** a brick, or cry glass".

He was apparently then asked whether he would would rather "eat chocolate flavoured s***, or s*** flavoured chocolate".

The questions sound a little unconventional, so it's no wonder the interviewee decided he would rather not continue his application for the weekend position.

"It was a quick and open interview in the restaurant which is what I had been told would happen," he told the Derby Telegraph.

"I'd already had a successful phone interview and I was really looking forward to this.

"I was quite excited but also a little nervous. 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.

"This was followed up with whether I would rather s**t a brick or cry glass. 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. I left the interview at that point."

A spokesman for TGI Friday's 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 Friday's 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."
