    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview, then had on site interview with panel of about 6 other managers that I would be working with. The position was new and not very defined so most of the questions were general information about how I manage people and processes. The entire process took about 3 weeks and they were very flexible with my start date.

    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with a regular department manager and then was sent over to talk with the store manager. The department managers were very friendly and professional people, that all seemed to come from the Fort Wayne, IN area. After the initial interview type questions, we simply spoke of their time here in South Bend, IN, and how exciting it was to be part of a new stores beginning. Then when the store manager was done with his previous interview, I was then passed over to his table so that he could speak with me regarding his expectations for the employees and the store.

    Interview Questions
    • I was very surprised by how in sync I was with the store manager about the philosophy about customer service. We both agreed that being cordial and friendly to people was a state of mind, and that customer service is good for the soul. Working daily in a job where you are paid to be nice and helpful to people definitely translates/spills over into the rest of your daily life/demeanor.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was not a negotiation. They were hiring at a certain rate for the store before it opened and I was happy to be a part of the store's beginning.
