I did my work experience as a salesman in a skate shop from the 13th of April to the 17th of April. I’ve chosen to experience this job because it’s very interesting to know what takes place in a skate shop, I often go to this shop and I wanted to know a little more about it.
But this job isn’t related to my future career because I want to be a policeman and work in France. For example, I watched the manager selling items and making skateboards to clients. He had asked me to label shoe boxes during 3 days and sweep. It’s also necessary to tidy up items.
To work as a salesperson you need a high-school degree. I love this job because I skate and it’s a skate shop, so I am in my element and I like communicating with the clients. But it’s difficult when the clients asked me a price I didn’t know about. I think it’s interesting, awesome, complicated, motivating to have a job but sometimes I say to myself that it’s really necessary to want to go to work to like a job.
After all, I had a nice work experience week and I thank the boss for having devoted me some time.
