  • be sincere in their duties
  • be good negotiators
  • be confident

Question 3: How many stars would you give Tom for his performance on the first day at work? Give reasons.

Answer: I would give Tom 3.5 stars out of five because though Tom was truthful, honest and sincere but he wasn’t ready to take risk, which is of utmost importance for a sales person.

Question 4: Do you think Tom was responsible for the loss of hundred pounds to Mr Higgins?

Answer: No, I don’t think Tom was responsible as it was his first day. Above all, he wasn’t accustomed to the prices written and decipher the amount correctly. In this case, he missed out the tiny dot.
