You didn't say what the job was so it's tricky to answer. Take a pen and paper, or something, to make notes. You don't want to get finished and then not remember what was said or done. Ask questions, but only at appropriate times. If the person is extremely busy, that's not the time to ask for an explanation of something. Wait until a quiet time, then say, "I have a few questions about ABCD. When would be a good time for me to ask about that?" You can ask if she liked her job and if there were any challenges you should be aware of. After you leave, send a note (hand-written if your writing is legible) thanking them for the time and opportunity.

Well yes, it's just making sure you can do the job. For example at Tesco, when I started, I had to shadow on the checkouts until I was given enough confidence to know the numbers and scan good.
