Corporate sales managers don’t work in retail on the sales-room floor; they’re the ones overseeing the functioning of sales departments for commercial, industrial or wholesale ventures. Managers set the tone for the operation: they’re in charge of hiring, establishing policies and procedures, directing the sales team to build relationships with clients.
