This guy didn't do that. He got out (out of danger) and then ran BACK IN towards it. That is just stupid on many levels.
Yes, running back in to confront them is a retarded move. If you can get out of the situation without drawing a gun, that is preferred, but don't go riding back in like John Wayne to be an unnecessary hero.

Granted, it has been a while since I have interviewed, but I don't recall being asked that question and I don't ask it when interviewing others (which I do routinely). It may not be a slam dunk to get the next job, but hey, you are alive to get one, right?

Hence the policy to not show any resistance and get the robbers out of the store asap.
Tough to say what the robbers will and won't do, but I can understand the company policy. They don't want everyone to put them and their customers at risk.
My personal policies are independent of the policies of my employer though.
