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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    interview question are bold and bias, depending if the HR and Store manager like your response. Problem solving question, leadership, situations in direction and advice. Turnover is high / HR must interview at least 3 individuals for the position / HR interview is review by grade point system. 1-5 5 being the best. Pay rate is submitted to pay scale system and HR.

    Reasons for Declining

    low pay salary / 50 plus hours per week / more during holidays
