These days, there's almost always a screening phone call (at the very
least), where they ask you questions, and you're supposed to ask your
questions (what does the job entail, etc). One of the main questions
you ask at that stage is location and your travel time. Only if you
pass the phone screening, do they then (usually) call you in for a
face-to-face. You might find out then that there is travel, or that
you might be expected to rotate among offices or whatever.
