    Interview Details

    You fill out an app online, you get a call from the store's HR manager. You then go into the interview and are asked questions about how you work with others and how good you are at customer service. Once hired, you spend multiple days glued to a computer screen learning about how not to be a bad employee as well as go through an orientation

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    Position represented by HR Manager as a narrow and shallow scope or duties and responsibilities; false. The IS is at the nexus of multiple communication and responsibility lines. Dept managers and Assistant Store Managers transfer/default responsibility and fix blame on the ISC. Pay is 40-60% below job description and responsibilities. Don't be duped....

    They went through their suggested interview questions first such as describe a time when you went above and beyond to help a customer. Explain a situation when you had to take criticism and change something you were doing around it. Was a quick turnaround between initial application and a job offer.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews - one with HR, and immediately after, I interviewed with the Zone Manager. I thought it was really strange that I wasn't interviewed by the Department Manager, to whom I directly reported. I wish I had, because we were working together in a very small office with only 1 other person. I don't think I would have taken the job if I had met her - we were very different personality types.

    Interview Questions
    • Can't remember. But I do remember they asked a lot of "Behavioral Interview" style questions, like, "Tell me about a time when you made a mistake and how you corrected it."   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't really negotiate. I was told I had a written offer and to come into the office. I should have negotiated because it's nearly impossible to get a sizeable bump in salary after you're on board.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lowe's in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Sales will not help in this position. You need to make sure during the interview that you make it clear you are good with customers. Especially you are good with RUDE customers. That you are not afraid to make phone calls. That you are capable of planning massive projects, and MULTITASKING.

    Basically this is a two interview process. The first one is with the HR manager. This is the easy one. The second, and more difficult interview, is with the store manager. This is the time to show you can work with angry and rude customers well, and that you can communicate with installers and vendors well. It wouldn't hurt if you had a background in home improvement. Especially in floors, plumbing, doors, windows, decking, fencing, and kitchens.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you handle a really angry and rude customer who wants to speak to a manager while no managers are available.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They say this is what you get, take it or leave it.
