    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Lowe's in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I love many things at Lowes...the people, the product...BUT my interview was not the most delightful. first of all the interview was in what seemed to be a lunch room with others in the area. I had 2 people ask me many questions-now mind you I have not interviewed in a while and if they use a score sheet to rank you for a job....bad practice as to how a sales person is going to react in a real situation is very different. I did not think much of my interview and this changed my whole perspective on the company. If you say that you are going to get back with a person of the descision then do so-do not let the person get a generic NO thank you or a phone call-they called me for an interview-right?...Not a good experience,I am not angry at the decision that was made it is that there are many crappy sales people in the store that do not have any knowledge or passion for what they do and to use "tests and numbers" to weed out people is bad-just stick to the old and true way of actually seeing for a bit what a person has to offer.

    Sales Specialist Flooring Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Lowe's in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Since I am currently a Lowe's employee, I did an internal application through our employee webpage. I called the store to verify that they'd received my app okay, and made an appointment to call for follow-up. I requested recommendations from my Store and HR managers, who sent emails to the store to which I'd applied. They emailed the store before the job posting expired. I called back for follow up and arranged the time for the interview for an hour later that same day.

    Interviews for Specialists and above are Group/Panel interview. For Specialists, it is the Assistant Store Manager in charge of the department you applied for, and the HR Manager. The interview consisted of a little over a dozen questions asking for specific examples of customer and coworker interactions, a product-knowledge role play, and a few general interview questions (why do you want this position? etc..). I felt that the questions were generally easy as long as you use common sense.

    Pro tips: Use Lowe's language (ex. "daily 8s"), prove you know the difference between the types of credit at Lowe's, bonus points if you can talk about Lowe's Experience of the Future (ex. MyLowe's, ATG, Connections, etc.) and keep your answers to the point because they have to write down what you're saying. They're not going to ask if you actually know about Lowe's credit, or about MyLowe's, etc. specifically - use them creatively in the questions that they do ask.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Lowe's in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process for this company is normally smooth, quick and efficient. It depends a lot on the HR Manager and their ability to select, interview and hire the right person without showing favortism or being too selective. The employees that have worked for Lowe's should be paid better to start than what some of the HR Managers pay them.
