    Csa Front End Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bowling Green, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bowling Green, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Lowe's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The questions I was asked would have been for management to handle, not the employee therefore making it extremely hard to say what the interviewees want to hear. I was not prepared for some of the questions and not knowing exactly what they were looking for in my answers. Maybe a second interview would help by different personal in the future.

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Most Sales Specialist interviews are scheduled with at least 24 hours advanced notice. The interview questions are Behavioral Interview questions, which Lowe's calls Situational Interview questions. If you have not held such a position previously, it will be difficult to answer the questions from a Sales Specialist perspective.

    Interview Details

    First got a phone call from a lady in Chicago of all places. She was doing a phone screen. All questions were for an entry level position. She said someone from the store would review the answers and call me. Nobody did. Tried for same position for another location , was on phone with one gentleman with a lady in the back ground. Went well , they said they were very interested. However they said the position has been filled. " I'm thinking what was the point of calling then? " In all , the questions were very basic hardly related to a manager level. Since then, it has been a big turn off. Even as a consumer there.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.
