    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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.

    I applied online - 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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and within a few days called the hr manager to inform her I had put in an application, and she took down my name and number. About two weeks after, she contacted me by phone for an interview at the store. I arrived at the store and interviewed with her; she asked six "tell me about a time when..." questions and wrote down my answers. she was very nice and professional, and allowed me a few moments to think of an answer if I needed to. Directly after interviewing with her I was interviewed by the department manager who asked me six more "tell me about a time when..." questions and the generic "why do you want to work here, why should we hire you questions". As soon as the interview was over the department manager told me I had a great interview and offered me the position. I then was directed to take a drug test right then and there, and as soon as the results cleared I would be starting within a few days.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you made a mistake. Did you realize it and how did you handle it.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I probably was able to negotiate for more, but I was just glad to have the job. The department manager told me the salary and I just accepted.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online using Indeed. It was a lengthy application, it took me around an hour. I got a call the same day I submitted my application. At first I was a little off put by the managers/hiring team. I felt like a face in the crowd, which I was. I can only imagine how many people they were interviewing if they called me four hours after my app was submitted. Still, I currently had a job when I went into the interview so I could afford to notice and be offended by the way I was treated. Usually the interview is done by two people on the same day. However I was asked to come in the next day to meet with the other interviewer as he wasn't there. Overall the questions weren't difficult. Mostly just describing situations such as; "Tell me a time you were interrupted while trying to complete a task?" or "Tell me a time you went above and beyond to help a customer?". They were looking for detailed answers. In all honesty, I made most of my answers up or embellished actual incidents. I figured at the very least they would be hiring someone that can think on their feet. Also, I should note the interview was one on one. I've done both group and one on one interviews and I definitely prefer one on one. The second day I came in to meet with the other interviewer I was blown away with by how nice he was! I was almost tempted to call and say I was interested in the position anymore because of the day before. But I figured if they were willing to give me a second chance, they deserved one too. I got a call that day that they would like to offer me the job and to come in and accept the offer letter and take a drug test (cheek swab). They also asked my permission to perform a background check. I accepted a seasonal position as a cashier at $9.79 an hour. I have 5 years of customer service experience and this is the highest offer I have received.
