    Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    Extremely long interview process. Over 3 phone interviews and 3 on location interviews. Never really discussed the position only continued to ask me required company questions about past bad experiences in the work place and how I resolved them. They portrayed Lowe's has having a lot of internal strife and lack of excepting new technology and ways of thinking. I was impressed with their campus but the people I met who worked there didn't seem happy or content.

    Reasons for Declining

    Due to the 2 month interview process, I excepted another position. I also didn't feel like it was a very positive environment. They can't seem to be able to make a decision and run with it.

    Interview Details

    It long for me to get into Lowe's. I am an employee who requires sponsorship. It will take more time to join lowe's after the offer letter is given. Lowe's has one technical round over phone & then 1:1 technical round & Panel round. Negotiation took lot of time with HR.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mooresville, NC

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Technology being used by Lowes a bit old.
