    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    After applying online got a phone call to come in for an interview at the store. The person who usually interviews was away for a family matter. Interview went well in fact they mentioned something about a position in the cash office. A couple of days later I had a phone interview with the person I was supposed to interview with in person. I thought it went well, we talked about another interview at the store and training schedule. Finally after a few weeks an email came saying that the position had been filed

    Seasonal Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lowe's in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I got a call to come into an interview the same day I applied. Spring is hiring season at home improvement stores. But unfortunately that means most of the positions are seasonal. I interviewed with HR, and they were very nice. There were about 5 questions that were asked about past experiences. You don't need to know anything about home improvement/hardware to be a cashier here, all they want is people to be friendly! They offered to pay me between $9.50-$10 an hour, and said that I could work up to 40 hours a week during busy weeks. It's great pay for the amount of work, but I declined because I wanted something long term and steady.

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    The interview questions are the same for every job. You always want to tailor your answers towards what you are interviewing for. That's the trick to getting the job. I've gotten every position I've interviewed for. Don't be afraid to admit times you've made mistakes, but focus more on what you learned than what you messed up.

    Interview Questions
    • Think of a time when you have someone the wrong information. What happened and how did you deal with it   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate. I did not expect a pay raise, and was very happy when I was offered one.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    You will be called in and asked several questions about scenario's you have faced in past jobs or life experiences. Answer the questions to the best of your ability and be honest. They want to know that you will not flip out on customers or employees. It's actually more difficult to mess up these questions than pass them, you just need to give reasonable answers and think before you speak.

    Interview Questions
    • What makes you the strongest candidate? It doesn't sound difficult but if you're not prepared to analyze yourself and competition without meeting them or being judgmental it can be hard to answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. The computer generates a compensation rate based on the store's current success.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lowe's in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a call back from HR to set up a phone interview the next day. HR called and once done with that interview I got a call back the next day to come in for an in person interview. After that interview I got a call back the following day to come in to meet the manager who has the final say. The manager meeting just seems like a formality to make sure you're competent and basically have the job prior to even meeting them.
