They tell you about the sales structure for earning commission, then set you up for the orientation. A skills test is required, as well as a personality test.

Reason for Declining – I declined because I'm not a spot in my life where I can work without earning money because I don't have any saved at the moment, just coming out of college. This position would be better for someone who is doing a career transition.
