How to test a lens in store?

I am gong to a camera store on Thursday to try (not buy) and compare telephoto lenses. I plan to test 3 different telephoto lenses. My question is as this is the first time i am buying a lens,(camera came with kit lens) what should i look for when testing and comparing lenses and how is the best way to ask the shop assistant to try the lenses without suggesting on purchasing a lens.

Thanks
