    Interview

    Very intense interview process, full day of walking the stores, learning to stock shelves. Did not live up to the job description. I assumed it would be a more technical position, but after this "interview day" it seemed to just be a physical, stocking shelves type of role.
    Interview

    Sell a new product to a store manager, how would you lay out a specific display, etc.
