My journey started from a place called Arncliffe, which is in Sydney Australia. I had been employed by Harvey Norman for a couple of years, when I had to return home to New Zealand. I had no job to come home too and it was my last day of employment when my employer in Australia was on a phone to a friend in New Zealand and asked me if I needed a job when I got back, I said yes I do!
The next day I was on a plane and having arrived in Auckland Airport was straight on my way to an interview. Not knowing what to expect, I arrive at Manukau Harvey Norman, feeling a bit tired from the early morning and long flight. Well I walk inside preparing myself for the unexpected; lo and behold the interior layout was the same as my last employment! The blue tiled carpeted aisle and the white cream blocks of carpet – it was like I had not even left Australia!
Well I started work that same day! I was employed as a Salesperson and my first task as a Salesperson was to sweep the entire warehouse! As a Salesperson I have travelled with Harvey Norman within New Zealand, and have applied a lot of skills which has helped me learn about Harvey Norman and its operations. Things such as photo shoots for advertising, road shows, sales and retail, opening of new Harvey Norman stores, management and much more.
From a Salesperson when I first joined Harvey Norman to my current position as Warehouse Manager, the journey with Harvey Norman has been motivating and inspiring due to the vision of success and the awesome culture of the company!
