I was with Xerox from 1974-1982 having been hired right out of college by Tom Beardon to be a Sr. Customer Rep. Originally I was to work in Evanston but the position was closed by the region and I was assigned to Louisville. I did my first interview with Xerox in Chicago – since I was from Illinois. I was offered (after they tested me) a Sales position which I turned down. Then I was offered my choice of working in Denver, Chicago or Louisville as a Customer Rep. I picked Louisville because it was still close enough to my home town. Believe I made the right choice!
