    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    I was called two weeks after completing an online application and assessment for several positions at Lowe's. The HR Manager called me to setup the interview; I interviewed with the HR Manager and Store Manager that week. The interview consisted of standard behavioral questions associated with the position you are applying for at that location. Use the STAR process to answer the questions; be honest, consistent, and confident.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Recruiter called within a week to set up an interview. The process was very easy and provided quick turnaround for placement. The recruiter was very flexible with positions available and provided a discussion of my options over the phone. Took around 5 weeks from phone call to training.

    Horrible. They told me it was not necessary for me to dress formal (I had a dress shirt, dress pants, and a tie). I guess they never cared about people looking nice for the interview.

    Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Extremely long interview process. Over 3 phone interviews and 3 on location interviews. Never really discussed the position only continued to ask me required company questions about past bad experiences in the work place and how I resolved them. They portrayed Lowe's has having a lot of internal strife and lack of excepting new technology and ways of thinking. I was impressed with their campus but the people I met who worked there didn't seem happy or content.

    Reasons for Declining

    Due to the 2 month interview process, I excepted another position. I also didn't feel like it was a very positive environment. They can't seem to be able to make a decision and run with it.
