    Garden Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Howell, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Howell, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was really unprofessional. I went into the training room and 3 people were there. None of them had conducted an interview before and kept getting up to inquire with the HR person on what to ask. The questions were the usual "why do you want to work here?" etc. I was a bit put off at how unprofessional it was because I put time and effort into my appearance and demeanor for this and did not receive the same respect back. I was called two days later to say they wanted to hire me. I went through the training process and was alarmed that the position I received was not what I was put on the floor for. I had hours on my schedule but when I showed up to work all of the departments said there wasn't anything to do and I was constantly asked if I'd be willing to go home early to cut back on hours. Pretty disappointing so eventually I quit. I should have see all the red flags in the interview process with the management and not have decided to work here. It seemed that despite all of my own personal experience with Lowe's most people were happy to be working their job there.

    Cashier - Front End Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southgate, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southgate, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called by the person who works human resources and had a mini interview over the phone with him. He asked why I applied for the position, what experience I have in customer service, why I should be considered for a job. I answered honestly and carefully, and I got an interview in.
    We met up in a couple of days and he interviewed me. After that, the manager of the store interviewed me as well.
    They told me to come back again and that was when they both told me that I gave off a very nice impression and they'd love to have me work for them.
    I was scheduled to come back in a week to orientation with a group of people that hired in for other departments.
    I also took an oral drug test and did some computer training before I was on the floor.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by HR to come in for an interview. I always arrive early about 15-20 minutes (It's a bad habit of mine). She was an hour and a half late. I waited patiently for her to arrive. When she finally arrived, she said she would be with me in a minute. After another half an hour she came out to get me for the interview.

    Inside the office, it was awkward. She asked a question, and scribbled down everything I wrote. There was no feedback whatsoever, no real conversation. She asked about 4 questions regarding "Tell me about a time when..." scenarios.

    After we had finished with our interview, I was to interview with an assistant manager. He asked me the same sort of questions, but I could tell that I had impressed him. He smiled a lot while quickly jotting everything I said down. He said he was waiting for a promotion, I wished him luck and he said he would see me in a few days.

    About 4 days later they called me to come in for drug test (Just a mouth swab). HR lady was about an hour or so late again. (Not including my early arrival)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lowe's in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was a promotion within the company, but at a different location. I followed up after applying and was called 10 days later for an interview. The HR Mgr. & Store manager interviewd me for about 45 minutes. Both we're pleasant. Get there early but don't expect them to be ready at the set time as the manager who is interviewing you may be busy on the floor.
