    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits (Union City, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very relaxed, conversational, seemed truly interested in me. Interviewer asked questions to get to know me as a person and see if I could hold a conversation, as sales positions are all about communication. Then asked my skills and qualifications.
