    Interview Questions
    • Are you able to take this brand forward? Can you deal with constant change with line direction and within company?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was called a few days after with an offer over the phone. They told me my salary and my package. There was no negotiating. They dont have much of an onboard system. You pretty much have a one day seminar about the owner and his family and the history and how to use the company software and its so long and boring and pointless to most people. Then you are thrown into the den of wolves.
