Demos typically last 3 hours and, while you are trying to sell product, it is most important for you to have a genuine conversation with customers. You should be friendly, outgoing, and a fan of pies and cookies!

Requirements: A car, so you can drive to various demo locations.
Commitment: At least 1 day a weekend. Preferably two demos a day for a total of about 7 hours.
Compensation: $15/hr and free product!
