    Interview

    no phone interview, email asking me to come in for face to face. First 10 minutes consisted of interviewer talking about himself. Just a strange interview all around. IMO, they are looking for a quick fix, someone to bring a large book of business in and make the boss look good. After a few key questions I confirmed that the expectations for the position were to grow the territory 100-150% in a year. He looked confused when he realized what he was asking someone to do. No thanks.
