“Sales personnel” are employees whose job it is to bring in new customers, keep old ones, find and promote products, and keep track of regular purchases. They can be paid by the hour, by salary, or by commission, depending on the business that hires them.
The company that hires a sales representative decides what their duties are. Salespeople at one-stop-shop stores look for people who look lost or confused and help them find and choose a product to buy. Sales reps at supply chains or warehouses have more hands-on tasks, like going to retailers to sell regular supply contracts and making sure payments are made correctly and packages are delivered on time.
