I have had many jobs but I love harvey norman
2IC Manager and Sales Specials in Bedding (Former Employee) –  Rothwell QLD and Gunnadah NSW11 November 2018
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.😁

fun place with pressure
Salesman (Former Employee) –  Burnie TAS25 January 2018
salary/compensation is commission based so sales ability is a must. Staff was fun to work with but management does expect sales and profits so there is a lot of pressure

Worked 6 Days - Full Time Senior Salesperson
Full Time Salesperson (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW20 March 2017
Great working environment, saturdays/sundays is a must with no extra pay, saturdays required to work 1 hour extra with no extra pay, Stock take was required to work 4-5 hours (x3) no extra pay.

Besides that the commission structure was good, working with team mates was good.
Pros
Great expirence
Cons
Over worked, underpaid

Not horrible selling furniture, but not great either
Full Time Salesman (Former Employee) –  Warrawong NSW31 May 2015
Another job lacking good management. (CF is a sociopath)
High employee turnover says it all

Mostly female culture and generally OK work.

Decent commission/wage structure even if they wont tell you how it really works- usual story for commissions.

Weird rosters leave you having two consecutive days off only once per month or so.
Pros
Average work
Cons
High staff turnover, not as high as Domaine

Commission.. what commission?
Sales Person (Former Employee) –  NSW30 January 2013
Pay is minimum wage with "commission" which is 10% of the profit - and these days there isn't much of that. extended shifts (up to 12 hours) for sales are expected, regardless of what you may have planned in your personal or social calendars. Product training is there if you want to make use of it, and lots of "trade night" dinner invites were always good as well. If they'd change structure of commission, and allow a better work/life balance, Harvey Norman would be an awesome place to work.
Pros
vast product training
Cons
poor work / life balance.
