I have had many jobs but I love harvey norman
I have had many experiences with harvey Norman, from being a Sale Specialist in the Bedding department, to Managing an Electrical Computer Store in a Small country town. I believe Harvey Norman is an amazing company in the way it looks after it's ppl. If you really want to make money, in Sales then Harvey Norman is the way to go. You get out of it what you put in, if you want a 9 to 5 Job, then Harvey Norman is not for you. It is busy, and you have to learn your stuff, the Harvey Norman way. I would love to be able to work at Harvey Norman again but due to illness I have retired very early. If Customer Services is for you Harvey Norman is a great place to start as you really can build a great business for your self with HN, and even Travel overseas to work in their other stores.
Pros
Great Income, Stable Enployment, Career building, Travel.
Cons
7 days a week operation, but I don't really think it's a con, as that weekends are when you make your Money.šŸ˜

Do not apply here.
There is no flexibility as you can't wfh regardless of the situation with covid.
The IT project manager is clueless and he doesn't know what he is talking about most of the time. He is confused about the difference between a Project Coordinator and an admin role. They want to find someone they can pay as a Junior while doing a senior job. If you are smarter than them then they will tell you that you are only just an admin.

Working at Harvey Norman
I typical day at work would be answering phone calls, doing invoices and computer work, helping out customers and paperwork.
I learned how to invoice and a lot of computer work.

The most enjoyable part of my job was greeting customers and helping them out with what they needed

Dont judge a book by its cover
Seemingly perfect environment but very competative, stressful and clicky. If youre not in sales you will never recieve above 45000 a year even in if you want to work in administration.

Great place to work majority of the time
Great team and place to work and lots of avenues for support. Can be stressful in busier periods but as to be expected in retail. Lots of opportunity for growth and potential earnings

Very low pay
I was at Taren point Harvey Norman and after 7 ten hour days I was only paid $773 for 70 hours of hard work,and that works out to about $11 an hour and they thought that was acceptable, I didn't and quit, so this place is a total ripoff for the employee,so don't work there.

Not a great place for a casual job.
As a casual worker, it was made obvious that my job was not really a priority. I enjoyed the work that I did there, but being placed alongside full-time employees that saw me as their own revenue raiser (pawning off bad sales), and management who couldn't care less about that it was hard to make a commission.

I have a happy nature
I love working in a team environment and enjoy helping and serving customers at my work place,

I am a very happy and positive person and most of my customers know that about me when they come in to the store, we do have lots of regular customers,

I do occasionally get out of my comfort zone and help customers with wanting to purchase an item and are unable to get a salesperson to help.

I am looking for another job because the store I am working at is closing and they are not renewing the lease of the building.

I worked in administration mostly doing accounts work doing Debtors and Banking. Management was terrible as was training no support and your basically thrown in the deep end. I was bullied by my Manager and in the end I couldnā€™t take it. The girls I worked with were nice however no one talked apart from when the Manager left the room. Overall it was not a pleasant experience or work environment.

Apply if you are a beast of a sales
Pays well if you know how to sell Monster products and extended service policy. Know how to sell audio. Don't get angry at the prop. Come to work hungry for sales commission. And practice darts. Great company if you work for the right prop. Never ever work for prop Dion. Worst lying unfair prop ever. Good in the beginning but he is a wolf.

Interesting and difficult place to work
A typical 9 to 5 job, with weekend hours. I learnt how to deal with customers and external partners to ensure quality service was provided. Having a work-life balance was a struggle due to staffing requirements.

Don't Do It
Unprofessional incompetent manager and supervisor. Absolutely hands off with no soft skills whatsoever. Bullying and harassment was rife. Workers were encouraged to compete and fight with each. Expected to work back without pay. Unsafe work practices were encouraged by management. The worst people I have ever worked for/with. Absolute toxic and dangerous environment, both physically and psychologically. Run while you can.

Boring and confusing
No one knows how to teach new employees how to do the work. Most of the time you are trying to figure out what is even going on. It is a terrible place and they need to fix it.
