Application Details

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

Interview Details

I was called two weeks after completing an online application and assessment for several positions at Lowe's. The HR Manager called me to setup the interview; I interviewed with the HR Manager and Store Manager that week. The interview consisted of standard behavioral questions associated with the position you are applying for at that location. Use the STAR process to answer the questions; be honest, consistent, and confident.

    structured to a fault. If you are competent and you get to the interview point you should be good. I do think that your chances as an outside candidate are lower due to the experiences needed as an insider to score higher on the questions.

    It was a phone interview lasted about 30 minutes I felt rushed. I was the second one they interviewed and soon got the feeling I was being interviewed as one of the three they needed before hiring someone they already had in mind.

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I am a Department Sales Manager for Lowe's so the process for an internal hire is a little less formal than an external hire. Its about a one hour 2 on 1 interview with the Store Manager and HR Manager. They choose 3 candidates that they feel are the best qualified from those that applied that the they want to interview then set-up a day and interview time with each candidate. 10 questions on a preset interview form which I am not sure if they are different or not for an external candidate but had a lot of references to the Lowe's working structure. Each question gave them a section to take notes and then to rate you on the question. They took turns on each question which were kinda generalized with a few specifics that asked for situations that ranged across how you problem solved, resolved a customer issue, helped a struggling employee, were adaptive to change and your ability to get results. After the 10 preset questions then the store manager asked 2 additional questions of their own that where not required.

    Interview Questions
