    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lowe's (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    Situational/behavioral, Make sure you have a beginning, middle and end to your examples. Be specific with details. Remember they do not know you or your previous company. Explain as though they have no idea what you are talking about. They are looking for how you handle specific situations and what kind of pressure it brings to you. You can pause and take a minute to reflect to find a situation that fits the question.

    Most of them are situation questions. Lots of questions last about 45 minutes. If you have Lowe's Experience you should be ok. Otherwise might be a tough interview. Geared more towards in-house than outsiders.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Tifton, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    New interview process. Have to pass pre interview before you can be considered to go on to real interview. Its 10 questions as always and they are all situation based questions...if you were in this situation what would you do? Categories ranging from customer service, sales, loss prevention, and pretty much common sense. You either have what they are looking for or you don't. Benefits them to hire someone in house when its last minute decision. To make themselves better they hire someone outside the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Columbus, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Asked a set series of behavioral questions. All answers were rated based on the level of detail. You can be the best qualified candidate but still lose the job based on not providing enough detail when answering one of the many vague questions. After working for Lowe's for 5 years, 80% of candidates are preselected to be hired before the interview process starts. This was told to me be 3 different Store Managers.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time you had complete a project while being interrupted.   Answer Question
