Overall Reviews at Harvey Norman

Business Development Manager | Chadstone VIC | 26 Oct. 2019
Had the range but not the desire
Too many times changes to KPI;s were made because they were achieved. Minimal assistance from management to source appropriate products at competitive pricing.

Customer Service Associate / Cashier | Woodville SA | 10 Dec. 2019
productive and fun!
Everyday is different which makes it more productive as don't feel as if you are doing the same thing over and over. An overall good vibe throughout the workplace makes it that more enjoyable.

Busy
Busy it can be when there are a lot of customers flowing through especially during weekends. The team was well managed and acceptable to work with. Managing product sales and stocktake was my role as well as selling products to customers and meeting their needs.
ProsInteraction with customers
ConsTravel time to work

Bank Clerk | Melbourne VIC | 31 Jan. 2013
Great Opportunities
A typical day as a casual banking clerk and administration assistant begins with organising floats and takings bags to be distributed to the cashiers within the store, printing various banking reports for each franchise, balancing cash/eftpos/financing for each til for each department and preparing banking reports of the previous day's takings, answering phones, general admin and support duties. Whilst in this position I have developed a strong attention to detail, strong cash handling, problem solving and communication skills. The most enjoyable part of the job is when everything balances at the end of the day and interaction with staff and customers. Hardest part of the job is being the only one in the office over the weekend.
Prosgreat opportunities for growth and career development, salary

Exciting work environment
there was always something different to do, customers and/or visual presentation on the shop floor. Always being customer service driven. Helping Co-workers to come to a solution for their customers and making sure that they always get what they need. Communicating with suppliers and carriers, lead times and on time deliveries for our customers. while having a business mind set. Expanding my skills to all aspects of the business.
ProsGreat people, and company.

Questions And Answers about Harvey Norman

What would you suggest Harvey Norman management do to prevent employees from leaving?
Asked 21 Mar. 2017
Pay warehouse workers Warehouse wage. Not award wages or Retail wages. It’s a physical job.
Answered 3 Jun. 2021
Where do i start? 1. Pay decent wages - either put everyone on a higher base and then give bonuses for good salespeople or make commission % higher 2. Stop franchisees setting unrealistic targets for their salespeople 3. Treat employees with respect - don't talk down to them and accept that they are not 5 year olds getting a lecture 4. When getting a new employee, give them time to train and learn the system rather than throwing them to the wolves 5. Be positive - look for the successes employees have rather than criticising any small thing. 6. Care for them. If franchisees show that they care about their employees, the employees will accordingly try their hardest and are more likely to bend over backwards for the franchisee. Carrot, not the stick.

Relaxed & casual as they will take anybody that will work for nothing pays is garbage
Answered 28 Dec. 2019
For me it was a relaxed process. I had the initial interview then a week of training on the systems before training at two stores before going to the store that I would be working at. This won't be the same for everyone.
