Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee
Flower Mound, TX

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lowe's in March 2014.

Interview Details – HR manager called me three days after filling out the application online. I came in the following day, and he asked me some "Tell me about a time when you. . . " questions. After that, he asked me to come in the following day. I met with the manager and he essentially asked the same questions. The drug test was done at the time of the second interview. They called me four days later and asked me to come in and sign the paperwork.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you went above and beyond for a customer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. They type in your qualifications and receive a pre-determined hourly rate based on your experience.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – The hiring process was the easiest interview I went though. My review won't be too helpful because he really didn't care who he hired because he was transferring stores....Again. When I walked in for the interview as a head cashier. They asked me questions about leadership and work experience. They also asked me what do I like to do. The first interview was with the HR manager, and the 2nd interview was with one of the assistant managers. They asked the same questions. They both said they wanted me to work there, but they said the head cashier position was already filled by an instore employee.. They wanted me to work as a cashier there, so I took them up on the offer and came back for a drug test.

Interview Question – Nothing was difficult, simple. Job experience and what do you like to do.   View Answer

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Toledo, OH

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lowe's in March 2012.

Interview Details – Interview and hiring process was pretty simple. It consisted of an interview with the HR and right after a second with an Assistant Manager. The questions were very basic focusing mostly on customer service experiences. The last pat was an offer from the Store Manager and submitting to a background check and drug test. All in all a fairly quick process.

Interview Question – The most tricky question was about a time when you promised something to a customer but you couldn't or didn't deliver. Seemed to me they were looking for how you handle that and what you said to keep the customer happy.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much chance for negotiation. They made the offer based on the years of experience at several skills from my resume.
