    Corporate - BUsiness Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online - 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.

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

    Seasonal Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, called the HR manager a few days later. She asked me to come in for an interview with her. After that a few days later, I interviewed with another manager and they told me I may have to interview a third time with the store manager, however they skipped this and offered me the job right there. They will do a drug test on the spot, but the background check will take a few days. The HR manager told me that I was hired because I took the initiative to call her...
