Head Cashier Interview

Head Cashier
Richmond, VA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and got called 2ish weeks later. I had two interviews one with the HR manager and one with the Assistant manager. Both were pretty basic interview questions: tell me a time about this, explain a problem customer and how you dealt with them, tell me a time you were alone and leading a team, tasking and customer balance experience, etc. They offered me the position that day and I took the drug test and consented to the background check. I got called a little more than a week later with the results. (It took longer for me to get my results because the HR manager was going on vacation) Overall it was a great and fluid interview process!

Interview Question – Explain a time when you told someone else wrong information regarding policy or any other work related expectations, but you did not realize you were wrong until later. How did you handle it, what did you do?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not try and negotiate they gave me a higher rate than I was going to negotiate for!

Head Cashier Interview

Head Cashier
Orlando, FL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2011.

Interview Details – Just like any other interview the basic "tell us about a time" questions. You first get a call to set up interview then meet with HR manager. After that you arte called back for an interview with the area manager that you applied for. Next you are drug test and background tested. These take the longest about two weeks. If everything comes back good you get an offer and start during within 5 days. First you go through one week computer training about 5 hours for 5 days!

Interview Question – Tell us about a time where you disagreed with a manager on the way something should be done?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Nope they offered me a great rate and I accepted

Head Cashier
Anaheim, CA

I applied online - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2014.

Interview Details – The whole process is a waste of time. If they like you you're in. If they don't like you, you're out. They will promote from within if you're a brown nose

Interview Question – The questions are basic but when the interviewer makes their notes, they only write down a small portion of your answer and base your "score" off that   Answer Question

Head Cashier Interview

Head Cashier
Pascagoula, MS

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2013.

Interview Details – Was called by Lowes and asked to come in for interview. Went for interview, no big deal. Stupid questions, Lowes like to hear 'key words'. Something to do with GSA Contract.

Interview Question – The questions were strange. Something to do with GSA contract I expect, but husband works for GSA and we know how it works - not at all like Lowes. In fact in real GSA, if they want you for a job you get it. Lowes pretend differently.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Think very carefully about it. It may be better to stay on unemployment until something better comes along.

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2014.

Interview Details – Interviewed with human resources manager on Thursday and at the end of the interview was invited to speak to the store manager on Tuesday. They said they wanted to make a decision by Wednesday. You are asked to read the job description during the first interview and then the HR manager covers job basics like required to work holidays, weekends, etc. After the obligatory disclosures you are asked 5-7 questions.

Head Cashier Interview

Head Cashier
West Hills, CA

I applied online - interviewed at Lowe's in February 2014.

Interview Details – Like many other have already posted it asks very many redundant questions like "Describe a time when you ...and what was the outcome." I felt like the store manager already had the new candidate in mind when they interviewed me so I got the sense of being rushed and not being wanted to be interviewed which made me feel very uneasy. The also did not give me the courtesy of telling me that I was going to be interviewed that day so I was not in proper attire. When I know that they always let in store candidates know their date of interview.

Interview Question – What is something that has been an issue with you in the past, and how did you learn from it or overcome it.   Answer Question

Head Cashier Interview

Head Cashier

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

Interview Details – They do a standardized interview with general questions. Generally there are multiple people who do interviews in sections. They are all "give me a time when..." questions and you can pretty much make something up for every question.

Interview Question – As I've stated before it was all asking to give a time when something happened and how you responded. One example could be "Give me a time when you went out of your way to help a customer."   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating. Pay is calculated from experience. The HR will input your years of experience in the computer and it will give you the recommended pay. There is really no wavering from what the computer says.
