Corporate - BUsiness Analyst Interview

Corporate - BUsiness Analyst
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – I had multiple phone interviews that seemed to go well. Then an onsite interview; the campus is beautiful and is a very nice facility with a lot to offer. But the experience was like no other; it was just strange. I had panel interview and each was only interested in their printed list of questions in front of them and that was it. Getting through the list was what was most important. I felt like there was a specific answer they wanted for each question, but I didn't seem to be able to give it to them. On the list, there was no attempt to 'sell' me the company as there have been in other interviews. I was not extended an offer, but I wouldn't have taken it. There was such an awkward vibe there; the place was too quiet.

Interview Question – The questions were mostly behavioral - name a situation when you...   Answer Question

Installed Sales Coordinator Interview

Installed Sales Coordinator
Charlotte, NC

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in February 2008.

Interview Details – Terrible, they want to interview a retired contractor and ask them if they can sell windows, roofs, and fences. The person conducting the interview was a graduate from Herzing College with a degree in computers and no experience in contracting??????

Interview Question – I was aked if I minded assisting in store operations when the store was short staffed. Have you ever been to a Lowes and thought it was properly staffed? I wanted to sell as they call them "exterior products" and make money. Not tell some lady which paint would look nice on the prefab shelving made in China she was buying 2 rows over.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – None, base plus commission only.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2012.

Interview Details – When I was hired as a seasonal cashier it went by really fast. They called me and asked me by phone if I would be willing to work at the Outside Lawn and Garden register. I said yes then they gave me an interview for the following day. I met the HR manager...very professional and asked me the "Tell me about a time when..." questions. Then I talked to the store manager and he gave me the job right on the spot! Now when I applied for the permanent position...it was exactly the same....with the same questions...same deal only it took 2 to 3 weeks to hear back

Interview Question – Dont remember the exact wording....but it was about telling her a time I gave bad instructions and what did I do.   View Answer

Seasonal Cashier Interview

Seasonal Cashier
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in January 2012.

Interview Details – It was really fast for me. I had applied on Friday then I got a call Sunday and they asked me a few questions like why do you want to work at Lowe's and if I would be willing to work outside in the lawn and garden. I then got an interview set up 1:1 with the HR manager the following day. I came in 30min early. There were 3 of us waiting to be interviewed. The interview with the HR was a lot of "Tell me about a time when..." as soon as I finished she gave me a description of the job for me to read and sign agreeing to perform those duties. Then I met with the store manager and have other "Tell me about a time when...." Both HR and store manager were very proffesional. My store manager gave the the job on the spot and told me to go get my drug test done. That was it!

 Advice that I can offer is be professional and confident, let them know your serious and that you want to make sales. Add-on sales are key.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you made a mistake. What did you do?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation was necessary as they gave me more than I expected.
