The interview was conducted in Renault Guyancourt, the Renault Center, close to Paris. The interview was arranged by me since the salesperson interviewed is my cousin. First of all, I have to say that it was rather hard to manage a time when we were both available which is the reason why, I first had two phone interviews (on the 19th November for about half an hour, and on the 29th December for 40 minutes) with him in order to ask the most common question, but then I felt that a face to face interview was important to overachieve in my study, and moreover he proposed to make me visit the factory which was of high interest to me. I chose someone in the car selling industry since it represents for me one of the most important sectors for selling and when one thinks about a salesperson, car sellers often come to the mind. Plus, I have always liked the car industry and when I was young, I had already considered a possible career in the industry. I went to the company on the 1st of December, a Wednesday. Concerning the actual setting of the interview and the manner in which it was recorded was rather informal since I knew the interviewee pretty well, which I now think has been a strong asset since I did not over think or was not afraid to ask questions I wanted. All relative information obtained was written by taking an account on paper. I did not feel it was necessary to make a recording which could have made the interviewee feel uncomfortable.
