"When hiring sales associates, employers are looking for charismatic candidates who can provide helpful advice to customers and close sales. Be prepared to answer a few scenario questions that will assess your ability to handle difficult customers, sell a product, or excel on a team. Previous sales experience is an advantage, but not necessary."

This could be taken as a discriminatory question. Your distance away should have nothing to do with your qualifying for the position. If it was a commute you were unwilling to make, you wouldn't have applied in the first place.
