- Application Details
I applied in-person. The process took a 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.
