- Greedy – wanting us to spend money before seeing what they had to sell
- Dishonest – told us something that proved to be a blatant lie
- Dishonest – used underhand tactics to gain a competitive advantage
- Not trustworthy – very secretive, withholding information, preventing trade
- Salesperson was unable to trade without authority
- Reliable – stuck to their word; delivered on their promises
- Worked together as a team
- Honest, straight-talking, fair & trustworthy
- Considered the needs of others in an effort to collaborate, to mutual benefit
