    You will interview with two people at the same time. The manager over the zone you're applying for and the HR manager. Both will have the same stack of papers with questions on them. The questions are all in the format of, "Name a time when.." It is the STAR method. You will be graded on each answer from a scale of 0-5. They go solely by this, so do well. It doesn't matter if they like you or think you're the best person for the job. If someone scores higher on their interview, you will not get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you and a co worker had to work together to accomplish a single task. DId you run into any obstacles? how did you overcome that obstacle?

      Name a time when you took the initiative to learn something new at your job that was not required of you.

Then when asking me question he was very unorganized and had to stop and pause to find question to ask me. Was very awkward situation. They said they would most definitely call me but didn't. They made it clear that would call me. Waited all day and no phone call. LIARS!

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Lowe's (Carrollton, GA).

    Interview

    I was called two weeks after filling out an online application to come in for an interview by the HR manager. I came in and sat in the customer service area for ten minutes while waiting for my interview. The staff was very friendly and we talked while I waited. I then had my first interview with the HR Manager. They asked me about six very detailed questions, all "Name a time when..." questions with required details given. The HR manager was very serious and tried to show little emotion throughout the interview. She was friendly and nice after conducting said interview.
    After completing this interview, I then had a second interview immediately after with the manager of the department I was to be working in. They asked me basically the same questions, with a little variety. Same type of questions, just worded differently. The manager was very passionate about his line of work, and told me Lowe's was like a "family".

    Questions include "Why do you want to work at Lowe's", "Name a time when you resolved a conflict with a customer..", etc.

    After the interviews, about four days later, I received an email saying that they were going to pursue other candidates. I then received a call about a week after getting the email from the HR Manager. They asked me for a meeting to extend an offer and I accepted.

    I went in to accept the offer and they gave me a few forms to sign for the drug test/background check as well as an offer letter. I took an on-site oral drug test, which took about five minutes and when it was time for me to leave, they gave me an orientation date and sent me out with a mint.

    Interview Questions

    • "Name a time when you misheard a coworker or customer. How did you resolve the issue? How did they respond?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't bother negotiating, as the pay was above minimum wage. Seeing as this is my first official job, I didn't bother to request more pay or benefits.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected question was "tell me about a time you disagree with your manager"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    ADP generates the pay which made it look non-negotiable, but if you can tell them you deserve more because you have had such and such experience similar to what you are applying for in a retail or especially in a hardware store, they will increase your pay to the extent that the computer allows them. Your pay is negotiable with the computer not HR. I negotiated my pay and was increased by 0.70 cents, which I gladly accepted
