    Seasonal Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the seasonal position and was contacted the same week. I went to the interview and waited in the breakroom. Everyone seemed to be pretty friendly, but there were about 4 more people there before me that needed to be interviewed. I had my first interview, which was actually a supervisor going over the job description and asking if I understood the job and if I had any questions. I asked a few questions and then I was directed to a manager for a "second interview." His accent was very thick, so it was hard to understand him and he did not seem as relaxed as the other workers.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied on the Lowe's website under the careers tab. It took about three weeks before I received a call for the interview. I went in for the interview and answered their questions as well as asked a few questions about the job. Two days later they called me in for a drug test and to discuss compensation. The HR manager and I went back and forth over pay but initially settled on a good number.
