    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I had two interviews, one with the HR person and a second immediately following with an assistant store manager. The first interview consisted of 5 behavior based questions and the second had 8 similar questions. I was much more "seasoned" than either interviewer and both seemed a little nervous.

    Plumbing Pro Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lowe's (Springfield, MO) in February 2009.

    Interview

    i went in to the interview and it was a fairly relaxed seen where the hr manager and a zone manager were asking me several situational questions. The questions were not as easy as i had originally thought you really had to think about what you would have done. i later found out that a lot of people fail the interview process because they say what they would do in a situation instead of what they actually did and remember to be as specific as possible.

    I applied online for an opening for plumbing pro. I received a call within about 3 days asking if I could schedule an interview for the following day. I accepted the interview.

I was asked questions like describe a past situation where you had an disgruntled customer and did you treat the situation. Also one of the questions was why do you want to work at lowes.
