I worked at Carlson Companies full-time for more than a year

    Interview

    Took a typing test and answered typical phone sales interview questions. Casual business setting, they took me on an office tour and had me watch a person taking sales calls. It wasn't a difficult interview process, though it was a bit lengthy. Plan on this potentially taking over an hour.
