Observing a salesperson and a manager

From April 13th till 18th I had a work experience in Saint Pierre in a superstore and where I have observed the jobs of salesperson and manager.
I’ve chosen to experience this job because I want to become a doctor or a manager so I have done my work experience in this store to see how the job of a manager is. But at the end I spent more time with the salesperson than the manager so this work experience wasn’t really related to my future career as exposed earlier.
Salespersons must welcome, advise and sell merchandise to customers.
To become a salesperson, you don’t have to get a degree. I love this job because we are in contact with the customers but it’s difficult to stand for long hours because we can have back problems.
It’s motivating and great to do this job because I’m a very shy person but with this job I was able to be in contact with customers so thanks to this job.
