    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lowe's (Lawton, OK) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called the very next morning for an interview. The process was comfortable and the questions asked were designed to get the maximum amount of information about the my experience and skills without feeling interrogated. I was told I would receive a call within 5 days to let me know if I needed to come in for the drug test or didn't get the job. I was called the very next day to come in for drug test by that Friday and to ask me if I would accept the job. I went in for the drug test and filled out some paperwork and was told I would be called with the start date. I was called that Monday and given the date to start. Very professional and one of the best interview I have had.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    This interview process was simple and straight-forward. I went there to shop for an item and noticed a large banner that the Chamblee, GA location was hiring and I applied. I received a callback from HR asking if I could come in and I did. I interviewed with two managers, one at a time. They asked a couple of behavior-style questions which I related to past experiences.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's (Oxford, AL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I originally applied on the 11th of June. I was contacted by HR the following Monday for an interview that Friday. I interviewed with the ASM since the SM was out on vacation. The interview process was pretty smooth. He asked about 6 (Tell me a time when) based questions. In return I asked him 3 questions. He said that 6 candidates interviewed for the position. He said that I would hear back that Monday. Monday comes no call, Tuesday comes no call, and now Wednesday. I hate that he put a time stipulation on it. I rather he said you will hear from us next week some time. So now I'm just waiting.

    Front End Cashier Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lowe's (Avon, OH).

    Interview

    Applied online and was called for an interview within a couple days. Met with the HR person who briefly described the position, said she was looking for 3 people and would be making a decision by the end of the week and would let me know either way. She was very nice, very easy to talk to, and seemed like she was happy in her job. She asked a series of questions, reading from a script, and wrote down my answers. That was a couple weeks ago and I've never heard back from Lowes. Sad, because I would have been much better with customers than the sullen cashier who checked us out this afternoon. Maybe there's still hope since its been so long......
