    Started as a bagger and it was a matter of talking to the front end manager and setting up a date of getting an interview. Interview was really standard questions about when I could work, pretty much a review of my application.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an interview the day I turned in my paperwork.
    The format was generic behavioral questions, which lasted approximately 30 minutes.
    I was offered a position in the interview. The questions were not too in-depth: tell me about a time you dealt with a dysfunctional group, etc.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's Foods.

    Interview Details

    Short process. One interview and you have the job. The job training is no fun as you are on a computer reading and watching videos for over four hours.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's Foods.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application, but got no response for 2 weeks; I called them and they scheduled an interview with me. The interview was relaxed. No difficult questions were asked. They only really wanted to know my availability. The woman who interviewed me at the time was the stores assistant manager and she was very friendly.

    Interview Questions
    • I guess the most difficult question for me was: "Tell me about your work experience".
      Only because I had been a stay at home mom for 5 years prior to submitting an application at Lowe's Foods.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It went like this: "We can hire you starting at $8 an hour, see you 8am on Monday."

    Deli Clerk Interview

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

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Lowe's Foods in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Everyone is nice. The new over-all store manager is awesome. I needed to keep the job but I was a temp. so the process to transfer to another city was smooth sailing!

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was difficult...questions about how you would react in hypothetical situations in a grocery store.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate my pay. And raises may or may not happen? Depends on the manager really. The deli and the meat deparment pay the best starting... I only make $8.00.

     The hard part is if you are hired as a Temp and you plan on staying with the company... You'll either have to transfer to another store or hope they want to keep you. I recommend cross-training in different departments. Make yourself an asset to the company.

    This location is great in the summer if you get hired in the deli. You can be temporary and get near full-time hours. But when fall roles around...I advice you be skilled in more than one department. You might get the boot if you're just temporary.
