We’re continuing our series of meet and greets with the great team at Harvey Norman. Up this week, say hello to Catherine from the Swords store who is here to help with all things bedding related!
How long have you worked with Harvey Norman? I’ve been working here since the store first opened in Ireland. I started out as a Personal Assistant, before working on the furniture cash desk and now I work on the sales floor in the bedding department.
What is your specialist area? All things Bedding! I love seeing customer’s reactions to our pillow measuring system, and their delight when they try it out and experience the benefits. There is something very satisfying about looking after a customer and knowing they are totally happy leaving the store, confident that they have been looked after and are getting the mattress, bedroom furniture and/or pillow that is just right for them. The customer is happy and at the end of the day that’s what it’s all about!
Why do you like working for Harvey Norman? We have a great team in Swords bedding and I love the people I work with. No day is the same, there can be a fast paced high energy vibe one minute, and a calm atmosphere the next. You never get bored!
Do you have any hobbies? I enjoy painting, running, walking and reading. I also love organising fundraising events and interior design. I love nothing more than getting stuck into a new home improvement DIY project!
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go to and why? I would love to hire a camper van for a few months and travel around Canada. I love the outdoors and would really like to visit the Rocky Mountains and Niagara Falls.
