Might get a job at Guitar Center in the Pro Audio department what should I know going in?

I have basic knowledge of DAW's, mics, cables, studio setups, Pre-amps and some MIDI devices but walking in there, I felt really overwhelmed. I'm wondering what should I study up on the most before having my interview? My guess would be focus on the types of Mics, cables, amps and pre-amps and some knowledge of the digital software that they offer? I'm just worried I might end up getting fired just because I'm not some kind of audio Einstein. Anyone who has or is working a Pro Audio job that could give me some advice as to where to put my focus first?

Update:

Thank you very much. Your answer was very informative and to the point.
