Interview Details – Received a call from Hr for an interview came in was asked 12 questions Star format. One week still waiting to hear back. All questions were asked by Hr.

Retail Associate/Plumbing Department Interview

Retail Associate/Plumbing Department
Brandon, FL

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online through the Lowe's career website passed the assessment test. The very next day I received a phone call from the Human Resource Manager from the Lowe's store location I applied to. I was asked what time would I be willing to set up an interview for the next business day. I arrived ten minutes early next day to my interview. First part of the interview process was with the HR Manager. HR Manager explained to me she would be asking me six different type of questions and that I would be scored on each question on a scale from 1-5 with 5 being the best. She also stated out of the two candidate's and myself, whoever received the highest score would be best suited for the position and hired. Which I thought was somewhat reasonable!! I passed the first part of the process. Next I was told to be seated in the next office over which was the Store Managers office. HR Manager called the Store Manager from her store radio as I waited patiently in the next office the Store Manager arrived within five minutes. I greeted him in a polite, respectful manner and shook his hand firmly. He sat in his chair and smiled he was very warm welcoming. He explained part two of the initial interviewing process which was the same as part one asking me only six questions and then scoring each answer, I could see the paper as he wrote down his notes. My whole interview process lasted about an hour or more. I was told from the Store Manager that they would be making a decision by the next week. If I was not hired that I would be sent an email from Lowes HR. If I was hired they would then proceed to contact me via telephone to further my hiring process. As I was leaving the office, I had overheard the Store Manager tell the HR Manager, " I really like her". I was so happy to hear him say that. I felt that I had made a very professional, energetic and strong first impression with him.

Customer Service Associate II Interview

Customer Service Associate II
Knoxville, TN

I applied through other source and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2014.

Interview Details – During the interview, I felt that they already knew exactly who they were going to hire. I was simply one of the CYA candidates. The worst hiring process I've witnessed. I always thought that Lowe's would be more professional than this. Many companies are falling victim to the INTERNET JOB SCREENING SCAM. Lowe's is willing to pay an internet company that "supposedly" specializes in the job screening process and will do it for far less cost than in house. Sounds great but never works that well. This is how companies end up asking totally stupid questions of a candidate. Companies need to get back to dwelling on the POSITIVE side of business.
