    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Empire Today (Islandia, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    What a joke! Why did I ask questions only to be lied to? Was told my daily preferred hours of 9-5 was completely acceptable,that I could set my own hours was fine. Furthest thing from the truth. Evening and Saturday hours are mandatory which I can not work.
    Then I had to take a ridiculous "personality" test that absolutely no one could fail to get the job. Was told to report to work on Monday, ultimately giving someone no time to get their life together. What if you were leaving another job, so therefore you could not give proper notice?

    Negotiation

    There wasn't a negotiation since this is strictly commission-based.
