    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at JM SWANK (North Liberty, IA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    They couldn't really give me a day to day description of the daily activities. They also only had the sales reps do the interview when they should have had someone in the same position in the interview to help describe the job duties.

    Negotiation

    Over the ph Be and not willing to move on the pay.
