Human Resources Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied online - interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details

The process starts with looking at the Lowes career site. After you find a position to apply for, upload your updated resume. Lowes will choose the top three applicants and offer an interview. After meeting and interviewing with the Area HR Manager and Store Manager, you might have to do an informal interview with the Regional HR Director. After that, wait until they either call with a job offer or you get an email telling you thanks but, you were not selected this time but please apply again for other opportunities.

Interview Questions
  • All of the questions are situational based questions. They are all read from a list that corporate HR comes out with. Thus, they are all HR friendly and nothing too difficult if you have experience in that field or have a good dose of common sense.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
The pay is ran through a computer program and it tells them what to pay you. There is in some cases a little room for negotiation but, they tend to stick with the computer rate results.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    The initial communication was great, but after that the process went downhill. The hiring manager (regional HR director) seemed unorganized and unsure of how to handle the hiring process.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were pretty easy - not a very difficult interview. They did have me take a test on my HR knowledge which was fine, but unexpected.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was not interested in working there because of their disorganization. Also, my job countered with a higher salary.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Lowe's in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, took assessment received a call within two weeks. Set up an interview with HR Director and store manager. Interview was around 2 hours long. Questions seemed for corporate HR and does not relate to smaller locations. Interview is not personable and managers give no indication of your success or failure. Job offer is based solely on how well you do in the interview.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lowe's in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I only was invited to the initial interview, I believe I lacked the larger company experience they were looking for. The interview is very corporate and was about 15-20 questions. They have one sheet of paper for each question they ask where they write your response and then later rate your answer, I'm guessing it's how they rank their candidates.

    Interview Questions
    • 90% of their questions start with "Give me an example of time when you handled... " I did not always have a good or complete answer as I had not encountered some of the types of situations they were asking for in my previous experience with a much smaller company.   Answer Question
