Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Mooresville, NC

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2011.

Interview Details – HR called me so there was a desire for them to bring me on board. The interview was with 3 people, but the hiring manager could not attend (Lowe's expects employees to spend 6 hours a day in meetings, and do the 8 hours of work either by staying late or by working from home after a full day at the office... so that explained why he could not make the interview). The people were very friendly who interviewed me... they were peers and not management which made a huge difference. Their new building is very impressive, however it is easy to get lost, and it takes 15-20 minutes to walk from one end to the other, so depending on where your interview is you might want to arrive an extra 20 minutes early just in case. They asked some technical questions, but also wanted to know how you handle stress (which should be a clue!) and juggling multiple high-profile tasks all with immediate deadlines. It's definitely a challenge, but they don't tell you about why the position is open so make sure you ask. And also ask about the trends in the annual employee opinion surveys as that is important information to consider.

Interview Question – For me, the hardest interview questions to answer are those about what my "negative" attributes are. Of course that was one of the questions they asked!   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Lowe's does not negotiate unless you are going for upper management positions.

Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

Senior Programmer Analyst
Mooresville, NC

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2011.

Interview Details – Had 1 telephonic and 1 face one-o-one. HR is not so courteous but ok.

Lowes has a beautiful facility which will make you want to work there. However for some projects they use old technology. That could pose a risk to your career if you want to be in a job that uses the latest technologies.

Lowes has a great office except where IT staff sits. It is the most crudest infrastructure I have seen. No formal cubes. The area itself covered by white boards with drawings on them. Looks really messy. For companies that think removing cubicles will encourage collaboration, I disagree with them. Presence of cubicles lets the employee focus on his work. Without a cubicle employee gets distracted a lot and reduces his efficiency.

Interview Question – How do you join a table   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Technology being used by Lowes a bit old.

Very Easy Interview

Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

Senior Programmer Analyst
Mooresville, NC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in July 2011.

Interview Details – lowes reached out to me for an opening they had on their site. I filled the form on their site and they arranged for a phone interview which was really simple, where your recruiting manager asks about your experience. then they scheduled a group interview with their technical team which was at lowes hq where i had 2 rounds of interviews.

Although i was recruited for a technical role, the questions were not technical role at all. All the questions they ask are 12th grade programming questions which are really simple.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – i know a few folks who joined in the same role as i am in... and they pay the industry standard.
