    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application to 2 different stores at end of April- before summer hiring start. Received phone call from both. First HR interviewed me, then store manager. Asked situational questions. Yes, they do a drug test after offering you a position. For seasonal employees I guess they just look to see that you are a decent person who will be available for the time frame. Little interaction with store manager or HR while on the job.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Did not receive offer from Store 1, probably because I mentioned I would not be available for entire summer. Received offer from Store 2. Believed I clicked with that manager more.

    CSA Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    The process began with a phone call from hr the day after submitting my application online. We set up a meeting for a few days later. When I arrived I was greeted by the head of hr and he immediately brought me back to his office. We went through my resume and then he asked situational questions. After I answered each he asked a follow up question in order to get more detail or in this instance I beljeve to throw me off because I had already gone in depth and was extremely specific. Shortly after finishing with him I met with the assistant manager who was very nice and the process was more of the same although he was much more personable and wanted to actually talk and discuss the store and position as well as just shoot the bull. I was called back 3 days later with an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application on-line and followed up by dropping in, the next day, to speak with the HR mgr. I told him that I "just wanted to make sure you got my application, and see if you had any questions about some of my background". He looked taken aback and said he would check on it right then. I waited for several minutes and he returned and asked if I'd be interested in an interview right then.

    Interview Questions
    • I was questioned extensively about a previous job that had absolutely no bearing on the position I was applying for. Though not surprised at their interest, I was surprised that there were NO questions about my background pertaining to the job.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was probably the most difficult I have experienced. I interviewed with the HR Manager and then an Assistant Store Manager, all of which took place in one day. Each interview lasted a half hour. The HR Manager went in depth about the job description and asked about 6 situation-based questions, ex: Tell me about a time when you gave a customer wrong information? What was the outcome? About 5 minutes after the initial interview, I was taken into an office with the ASM. In this portion of the interview I was given the opportunity to "sell myself" and speak on my strengths and why I would be a good fit for the position. She asked about my skills and how they were utilized in previous jobs. The interview with the ASM was a bit more personal; after I spoke about my skills, she went on to asking situation-based questions as well. To conclude the interview, she asked why I chose Lowe's (I would recommend doing research on their site to set yourself apart from other interviewees). I applied online on a Sunday, received a phone call to set up an interview on a Tuesday, interviewed on Wednesday, was contacted by HR Manager that same day and accepted offer; tomorrow (Thursday) I will be going in for a drug test.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when a supervisor's message wasn't clear? How did you overcome that situation? What were the results?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was prepared to negotiate and ask for more if their offer was below $11/hr, however, that wasn't necessary as they extended an offer that superseded my expectations!

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the next day I got a call to come in for a interview the following day. Unfortunately, I was about 10 minutes late. The interview was okay. Standard Customer Service situation questions. But I was pretty nervous.The questions were purely situational and they wanted you to be very specific. "Name a time when..." things like that. Be very specific.
