    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Harvey Norman Holdings.

    Interview

    The interviewer was the owner of the franchise and he didn't ask me the usual standard questions. It was more a discussion about me, then he would ask questions based on what I said in a conversational way. It didn't seem like an interview at all. I didn't have enough knowledge on certain products though.
