2 hours to prepare for sales interview - help?

I realize this sounds a bit stupid, but I just got a call from a "regional" (though with a couple of international offices) IB, and they want me to come in for an interview THIS AFTERNOON. Thing is, it's for a sales position and I barely know what they do differently compared to trading and syndication, and to be honest my main interest is really in IBD. But since I don't want to blow future chances at this bank, and because I figured that what the hell, might as well give it a shot, I now have about 2 hours to prepare.

I believe it's plain vanilla equity sales.

So, why would you want to work in sales? How is it different from trading? From syndication? What's a typical day like? Hours? Pay?

Any hints, advice or just anything would be mich appreciated.

Thanks,
