Department Manager - Customer Service Interview

Department Manager - Customer Service

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the HR Manager rather quickly, (less than a week). Set up an interview the following week. Interviewed and did very well. You interview with your own zone specific manager. Original offer was 16.25 and didnt accept. After an hour they called back and offered much more and I accepted. Went back for my drug test and background check the same day. Started the following 2 weeks.

Interview Question – Nothing too challenging.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Based on my experience it defaulted my pay to $16.25 and I declined however they were able to offer me $2.50 more.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Chester, NY

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

Interview Details – The hiring process was somewhat fast and stream lined. First there was an appointment for an interview set up by the HR person. Then that interview included questions asking for verbal examples of past situations on a previous job where by you helped a customer or solved a problem for a person in a retail setting. other questions were of a similar fashion asking you to tell of your experiences or situations where you helped or resolved or reported a situation to a manager where necessary. Then a manager comes in and basically asks you some very similar questions during that same visit. All this while taking note of your responses.

Interview Question – What would you do if you noticed a fellow employee not doing what was expected of him or her? Visa vie reporting that person to management.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiating. An offer of hourly wage and training start date was about it.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's.

If satisfied you will receive an offer from the Store Manager for hire.

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager

I applied online and interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – structured to a fault. If you are competent and you get to the interview point you should be good. I do think that your chances as an outside candidate are lower due to the experiences needed as an insider to score higher on the questions.

Interview Question – tell us about a time when you where not able to satisfy a customer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – here is the offer.
