    Wear some comfortable clothing, the tour will be show you the working conditions and pace that they will want you to work at. Good luck

    Keep up with the tour group, that's the initial way HR weeds out people who can't physically do the job. If you can't power walk for 20 or 30 minutes, you probably can't load/unload a truck for 3.5 - 5 hours a day.

    HR likes to play mind games with prospective employees. Be on time, but don't be surprised if you're waiting around for an hour +....they do this to see who truly wants the job, some people give up and go home. Once the tour starts ask questions & act interested & eager to work. That's it.
