Very Easy Interview

Human Resources Manager Interview

Human Resources Manager
Abingdon, MD

I applied online and 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 Question – 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

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

I applied online and 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

Human Resources Manager
Las Vegas, NV

I applied online and 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 Question – 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
