Sales Person In Computers Interview

Sales Person In Computers
Fountain Gate (Australia)

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Harvey Norman Holdings in February 2011.

Interview Details – Very traditional process. Best to walk in and speak to a manager. Dress well (suit) and bring a resume.

The interview is very much sales orientated. They want to know if you can hit the numbers, especially Flexirent. Research Flexirent before you apply - know the benefits and show willingness to push it. Other products that are important are the add- ons like product care (replacement guarantee), Internet security and surge protection.

As a sales person you will also be doing stock takes, merchandising and bringing stock from the back, which means they want to know if you are willing to help out maintaining the store. Your hours need to be flexible too.

Each store will have a different proprietor with an individual style and hence the interview will have a different feel with each place. The fundamentals remain the same though. Ultimately they want profit.

Interview Question – No trick questions were ever asked. They just need to see your enthusiasm and willingness to get out on the floor and smash it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. The pay is largely fixed especially for part timers.
