"When hiring district managers, employers are looking for experienced candidates with the communication, leadership, and managerial skills to oversee multiple branches in a particular region or district. Be prepared to discuss your management style as well as your ability to handle conflicts and supervise lower-level managers. Employers will be looking for individuals with several years of industry experience, so be ready to discuss your knowledge of the field."
Would I accept a lower job than the one we were talking about.
He proceeded to state some very high earnings for the lower position, so I remained interested. So far the only negative is that the hiring manager has not called despite my being told he would call in a short time (It is now 9 hours later).
You have to stick to your guns. If you're a DM candidate, why the fxck would you accept a Route Sales Rep. job? ...because of the money? That just makes you look shifty.
