Job Interview

I went on a job interview yesterday. Asst. Manager for a retail store.

I shop whenever I have the money, I figure that makes me an expert on retail stores. The HR person interviewing me insisted on asking about my experience working in retail.
Now I don't have much experience in a retail store. That is to say my
experience consists of working at a gas station a few years back. I shop though and that should make me an expert.

So I don't understand when the HR lady, who herself is not a retail store manager, asked me how I thought it was possible that she could hire me to supervise when I would know less than the associates I was supposed to be supervising.

Well, since I worked at that same gas station I can vouch for you. You know more about retail than most! Treat the customer how you would like to be treated rather than try to teach them (no pun intended) about what they should want..
