Administrative Specialist II Interview

Administrative Specialist II
Wilkesboro, NC

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2011.

Interview Details – Initially I was interviewed by telephone by the Director of the department I would be supporting. He indicated that he wanted to bring in four candidates to the home office for further interviews with other members of the department, and asked if I was interested. The interview was scheduled and I met with another Administrative Specialist in the department, the VP of the department, and two Directors of the department, including the gentleman I spoke with on the phone. The only person who had a copy of my resume was the Administrative Specialist. The others seemed a bit distracted, and asked questions about my previous jobs, and how I would handle a person who is difficult. Everyone was very friendly and I felt very positive about the prospect of working there. My skills and experiences were an excellent match for what they were looking for. My salary request was higher than they were willing to pay; the most I would be offered was $30,000 a year, which I agreed would be acceptable. (I have been unemployed for over a year.) I was told there would be a decision made by the first of the following week; I did not hear from them by the end of the following week, so I contacted them and inquired as to the status of the position. I received a "thanks but no thanks" email shortly thereafter. There seemed to be a disconnect between the department that interviewed me and the HR department. Apparently there have been some very recent significant changes in upper executive and management roles, perhaps that would explain the confusion.
