    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at N.F. Smith & Associates (Houston, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Brief and to the point. They really need to determine your sales drive and ability as the job is not for everyone. You definitely need to have a positive and outgoing attitude to break down doors into the OEM and excess markets. Industry experience preferable but not required.
