- F2F wow the manager probably Mike Beliveau with your sales experience if you can quantify it he likes that he has worked at Abercrombie so retail experience is a plus. He has played lacrosse and loves golf. He has issues with someone who has strong beliefs shyou are ready to be molded wvwn though you have experience. IE "I can always get better" "there's no such thing as bad critiscm".)

Be dressed verry professional management LOVES a nice tie. Let them know that you get the driven sales person and the softie who loves the customer and company like family.
Interview Question –
They may ask you to sell some random object to them such as a pen or piece of paper. Every salesman knows you can sell anything by using grand adjectives. IE This brand new design and 100% spherical technology allows for a better flow.
Another toss up is that they may ask you to use a procedure already in practice with them PTL this stands for people travel luggage. In this procedure you ask how many people are traveling 1, then where are you traveling to 2, last how much luggage do you have. Now after this they will ask you based on what they said to recommend a car so you gotta know at least three get an SUV a large sedan or a luxury car. Tell them some features and why it works with their situation. BAM they're shocked and you've landed a depressing but well paid job. View Answer

No Offer – Interviewed in Norfolk, VA Sep 2012 – Reviewed Sep 18, 2012
Interview Details – Had the phone interview, it went ok. About a month later I got another call to schedule an in person interview. Arrived on time, small back office, they had no clue that there was an interview schedule for that day. After about 20 mins of time wasting, they proceeded with the interview anyway. Apparently I was the only person interviewed for that position. Interview went well, but it seems the job was never open. So it turned out to be a giant waste of my time and gas.
Interview Question – they were all straightforward interview questions, nothing unusual. Answer Question

Interview Details –
I was contact by an Avis recruiter. I had one phone interview and a few days later had enough. Each one gave me the impression that the interviewer was in some sort of call-center. They responded to my questions with generic answers or flat-out told me they didn't know.
A week later, I went to the airport administration building for a one-on-one interview. I was suppose to be interviewed by the regional manager but he was on vacation. Got interviewed by one of the many managers instead.
Told me the job was mine as long as I passed a drug test and had a clean driving record. The rest, sadly, is history,
