    Sales Person In Computers Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.
    Accepted Offer
