Don't work here if you can avoid it - bosses play favourites and if you not in the in group then forget it

What is the best part of working at the company?Staff are good and staff discount is okWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?Being watched like a hawk and getting messages about the littlest thing outside of work hours. Little to no training and expected to know everythingWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Toxic. Depends upon the franchisee you get but when some are absent for extended periods and expect you to answer at any hour of the day - it's a bit of a jokeWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?Busty - help here and help there - do this and do that - help out on sales floor but get no extras

I worked as a cashier. The system was incredibly complicated & slow. Lack of training & you get abused by everyone. Staff would yell at each other in front of customers! You would constantly feel below all the other staff because you were a cashier & any mistakes sales people would make us cashiers would get blamed. My manager never had anything good to say about us. Would always complain and yell.


Good pay

Run by salesmen, no concern for customers

Working in the warehouse we were told to put floor stock back in boxes and deliver as new, normally to customers the sales staff felt wouldn't notice (elderly). Management didn't care as long as sales were being made. Massive staff turnover as anyone with ethics didn't last long.


Staff discount


Lying to customers

Good for tech, bad for furniture

I would caution against considering a role in the furniture section. I had a negative experience there, as I was unexpectedly terminated without any explanation or prior notice. The work environment appeared to lack fairness, and the overall atmosphere felt unsupportive. However, if you are interested in the tech section, I would encourage you to pursue it. The individuals there come across as friendly, supportive, and enjoyable to collaborate with.

Vile place to work

I worked for multiple Harvey Norman’s over the years. The culture is demanding and unrewarding. Management is unrealistic. Obnoxious to put it gently. Minimum award wage. Also worked at a Domayne in the Gold Coast in the Warehouse and that was a decent experience.


Minimum wage. No work/life balance


Vile work culture.

Stable and Engaging Workplace

A good mix of computer and physical skills, as well as learning on the go with thorough training on product knowledge. An all rounder for developing skills for sales, retail and business management.

Toxic workplace and no support

The pay is ok, you shouldn’t expect a good pay unless you sell well that week. The workplace is toxic as everyone is competing for sales. There was a lot of drama between staff. Starting here was extremely intimidating as there was a lot of pressure to sell a good amount.

Team is amazing but pay rate isn’t good.

For a company of its size it truely needs to review salary according to 2023 working at this job you need to make sure you don’t have 1300 out going per month other wise you’d be living on the street. I’ll be fair and say warehouse team is very good multicultural and can have a laugh. DO NOT WORK HERE. WAS PROMISED PROGRESSION NEVER GOT IT.


Good team


Garbage pay

Very Nice place to work

Co workers are great, hours aren't bad. Overall I'd recommend. Lifting the furniture off the truck could be a little difficult at times but it was OK.

Not worth it

I am not being paid enough. There are no options to advance and no pay raise. I was offered a forklift licence and never recieved one. Work long hours, barely enough to make a living. You will not get a raise unless you try to quit.


Sometimes you get discounts


Poor work ethic from others, poor management
