Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's (Portsmouth, VA) in October 2012.

Interview

You'll be contacted usually within a week if the HR Manager is interested. You'll typically first interview with her; this is usually a basic "describe yourself" and your ambitions interview. If it proceeds to the next interview, then it will be scenario based. You'll receive questions evaluating your response to certain events/scenarios. Upon successful completion of the second, sometimes third, interview, you'll be called back withing 3-7 days for a Job offer. This company does drug test on the spot if you accept the offer.

Interview Questions

  • "Corporate has developed an initiative to increase sales in your specified area. You don't agree with the initiative, and think it will negatively impact the sales performance of your department in general. What do you do?"   Answer Question

Negotiation

I wouldn't negotiate unless you are coming from the outside, and have significant experience to bring. My promotions have all be internal, and I took what I could get! I've been somewhat satisfied with the pay increases with each promotion though; they were more that I was expecting.
