Seasonal Cashier Interview

Seasonal Cashier
Wake Forest, NC

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in March 2013.

Interview Details – It went well - if you get a call, show up ahead of schedule. Make eye contact, smile, and be prepared to answer questions. Since you will be dealing with customers, they are looking for someone who is able to interact well with other associates as well as providing great customer service.

Interview Question – You will get several questions that start with, "Tell me about a time ...." It might be, you dealt with a difficult customer or you worked on a project with someone else or when another employee wasn't doing his or her job and how you dealt with the situation.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was an entry level position so no negotiations.

Seasonal Cashier Interview

Seasonal Cashier
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2014.

Interview Details – Received a call about a week after I completed the online application. Interviewed with HR manager. Signed a paper that said I understood the job description. She read off a sheet of paper and wrote down my answers. Mostly "describe a time when" questions. After that an assistant manager asked similar questions. Was called exactly a week later by HR manager with a job offer. I accepted and she sent the background check. Took 2 days to hear back. Went in for drug test (swab test on-site) the next day and given my start date.

Seasonal Cashier Interview

Seasonal Cashier
Vernon Hills, IL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2014.

Interview Details – As I'm currently out of state for school, they did a phone interview. They called me about 2 hours after I submitted my application, I called them back and we set a day and time for the phone interview (today), and she (HR) proceeded to read from a sheet of situational questions, most requiring me to look back on past work experiences. After about 5 questions, the front manager (or something) came and asked another probably 6 questions. They told me they'd get back about the job by the end of the week.

Interview Question – None were necessarily unexpected or difficult. I think the most surprising thing was that they didn't ask me what my strengths and weaknesses are.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None, it was an hourly position with a high pay.

Inside/Outside Lawn and Garden (Seasonal) Interview

Inside/Outside Lawn and Garden (Seasonal)

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – Found an ad on snagajob that Lowe's was hiring seasonal part-time employees, so I applied. Got a call the very next day from HR to set up a day to interview, which was the same day she called. Got there, waited in the back (apparently during a group of employees' breaks) for about 20-25 minutes, just to sit in a room for another 10 minutes and sign a paper regarding the duties expected of me. HR lady said they were incredibly hectic that day, overall my experience was just really slow when it came to actually getting to the store and starting the process. never received a call back.

Interview Question – "You're going to bed, when you realize earlier today you sold a deck-spray paint that will tear all the coating off of the customer's deck. What do you do?"   View Answer

Seasonal Cashier Interview

Seasonal Cashier
Anderson, IN

I applied online and interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – This was your typical interview that you could expect for a cashier position. I went through three separate interviews, one with the HR representative, one with the assistant manager, and a final one with the General manager. After the final interview I was offered a job on the spot. I then went over information on the job and pay and was given a mouth swab drug test.

Interview Question – Nothing really difficult   Answer Question

Inside/Outside Lawn and Garden (Seasonal) Interview

Inside/Outside Lawn and Garden (Seasonal)
South Bend, IN

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2014.

Interview Details – I filled out the application around 3pm on Monday night and recieved a call for an interview about 30 minutes later. We set up the interview for the next day. I was first interviewed by an HR manager, it we pretty well. I was then told I would interview with the store manager that day. I waited around for about 30 minutes as they were conducting a load of other interviews that day. The interview with the store manager was pretty much the same STAR type questions. Both interviews went very well, they were very personable. They told me I would hear from them in 3-5 days. I got a call 2 days later offering me a position. I go in tomorrow (back to the store) to do my drug test and I was also told the background check takes an additional 3-5 days.

Interview Question – Pretty easy questions. They follow the STAR method. "Name a time when...."   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, but pay is above minimum wage.

Seasonal Cashier
Jackson, MI

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lowe's in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call from HR manager about a week later, went in for interview two days later.

Walked out of the office to be called back in with HR manager and was given a job offer.
