What are some entry-level jobs?
If you’re interested in working hands-on with Harley-Davidson, you can find entry-level positions at their assembly plant where you’ll be manufacturing motorcycles — cool, right?
There are also entry-level positions in their retail stores. You’d be assisting customers with their purchases and handling transactions.
Tips to get hired here with a felony
While there are two types of entry-level jobs at Harley-Davidson, manufacturing and retail, the application process is the same for both. You’ll want to create an amazing resume that really stands out from the others and nail your interview. Here’s how you do that:
First, the resume
List your education. Did you graduate high school? Earn your G.E.D.? Maybe you attended college. Letting them know how far you went in school will give the company a good idea of your qualifications and abilities.
Be sure to include the names, addresses and phone numbers of your previous employers. Prioritize jobs with crossover skills to the one you’re applying for now. Don’t forget to list your job position and duties as well.
Detail any experience, skills or hobbies you have that will help you get a job here. For example, have you worked on a motorcycle? Do you have experience in a retail setting? Does your previous work history include any manufacturing or assembly experience?
Then, the interview
Arrive 10-15 minutes early to show the company you can be on time and are reliable.
Wear something business casual. You don’t need a fancy suit or formal dress, but you don’t want to show up in jeans and a sweatshirt. If you don’t have something nice to wear, check out your local clothing pantry or church for options.
Talk about your talents and skills. They’ve read about them on your resume, but now is your chance to really talk them up. Whether you own a Harley-Davidson and taught yourself, worked in an assembly setting in prison or have work experience, make sure to tell them the details.
And talk about your favorite Harley-Davidson products! Show you know the company.
When you’re answering questions, be as honest and specific as you can. This includes questions about your background. You don’t want them finding out any of the details the hard way and costing you your job.
