Whether you read blue-prints may be asked. Whether you can travel with a team to jobs several miles away for one-to-two week jobs staying over night in hotels - may be asked. If so, try to courteously ask how (if) the scheduler might aid in arranging travel with other (trusted?) workers, and whether that worker has any information on decent hotels, beforehand. (2) You may be asked if you can work overtime, without notice. Ask which type jobs are more likely to require this, if you can't stay past 8 hours. (3) Slightly mentioning a familiarity with using drills, drill bits, levels, etc. might lead to getting chosen over employees well-experienced but without those skills. (4) Do you read POG's (Plan-O-Grams)? - Usually this refers to shelving heights movement and products to be discontinued and/or reset. However, electronic items POG's require some blueprint reading. (5) If asked how you resolved "problems" with personnel in the past, always speak of the issue itself, and not the personnel. (6) 65% of positions only require ability to stand, bend, and sit on floor throughout 8 or more hours while you interpret the type-written lines of fine print to match with stock numbers - that may not be listed on the products! (Check with manager before you begin the job on whether these numbers match!) Research online to learn beginning vocabulary for retail merchandising. You may get an edge if you have a portable printer & laptop, if you're team lead is willing to take any assistance.

I asked if they could explain the emphasis on "Possible Remote/Flex Schedule" - and was told most people had the option to come in around 9-10am and leave around 6pm. There was no mention of remote possibility.
