    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Central Garden & Pet.

    Interview

    Easy phone and in-person interview. Phone call lasted about 20 minutes-the territory manager explained the position and asked basic questions. Was asked to meet at a local distributor where the territory manager explained what you'd do on a normal day.
