    How about details on what type of "career" you're planning to start?

    In that case, just fill out a retail associate job application. I'm not familiar with that store, but most retail stores will hire practically anyone with a pulse. The turnover's usually so high that it's pretty easy to find at least a part-time (minimum wage, no benefits) job in a retail store.

    This is not any retail store, they have benefits and its commission. Google it.

    A current colleague of mine worked at Rosen's for years, and I almost took a job there out of university.

    After 10 years of service, he was making 100-150k a year at one of their larger locations.

    You'll see little in the way of salary, and much in the way of commission.
    I think their structure permits up to around 8% commission, which can be VERY lucrative.

    Prepare to be frustrated to no end, as 95% of the decent clients are serviced by existing sales staff, and the amount of new clients is slim.

    Familiarize yourself with Coppley, who is a mainstay within their custom lines, and this will show well in the interview.

    If you have any questions, pm me.
