I applied in-person. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Harvey Norman Holdings (Sydney (Australia)) in June 2012.
The interview was very casual and insightful. I got a feel for what the job would entail. The store owner was very down to earth and easy to talk to. I also got a day trial where I was watched by the owner to see how I work. As long as you are confident and not afraid to approach customers, you have a good shot.

I applied in-person. The process took a week – interviewed at Harvey Norman Holdings (Fountain Gate (Australia)) in February 2011.
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.
- 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
No negotiation. The pay is largely fixed especially for part timers.
