    Head Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tullahoma, TN

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by the assistant store manager over the administrative area of the store as well as the administrative department manager. They each had a list of different questions that appeared to be a standardized corporate interviewing packet, and they took turns asking their respective questions taking notes on my answers. After my interview a decision was made within the week, and I was given follow-up advice on my interview, and I was offered to be worked with on my experience in the company so that I would be better qualified if a similar position opened up as I was a current employee at the time of the interview.

    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 in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got called 2ish weeks later. I had two interviews one with the HR manager and one with the Assistant manager. Both were pretty basic interview questions: tell me a time about this, explain a problem customer and how you dealt with them, tell me a time you were alone and leading a team, tasking and customer balance experience, etc. They offered me the position that day and I took the drug test and consented to the background check. I got called a little more than a week later with the results. (It took longer for me to get my results because the HR manager was going on vacation) Overall it was a great and fluid interview process!

    Interview Questions
    • Explain a time when you told someone else wrong information regarding policy or any other work related expectations, but you did not realize you were wrong until later. How did you handle it, what did you do?   Answer Question

    The whole process is a waste of time. If they like you you're in. If they don't like you, you're out. They will promote from within if you're a brown nose

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    They do a standardized interview with general questions. Generally there are multiple people who do interviews in sections. They are all "give me a time when..." questions and you can pretty much make something up for every question.

    Interview Questions
    • As I've stated before it was all asking to give a time when something happened and how you responded. One example could be "Give me a time when you went out of your way to help a customer."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiating. Pay is calculated from experience. The HR will input your years of experience in the computer and it will give you the recommended pay. There is really no wavering from what the computer says.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is a two part session. It starts off with first interviewing with the HR manager and they'll ask situational questions with interactions with customers and you can put your prior experience to answer those questions. The next part is with the assistant store manager and they ask similar questions, but a little more into detail. Process did not take long for me. I was hired on the spot.
