Cashier - Front End Interview

Cashier - Front End

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2014.

Interview Details – They start off by introducing themselves. They ask about your job experience. The questions are the same no matter which department you are applying for. Mostly, it's about how you handle bad situations and how good you are at managing customers. They are "Tell me about a time when" questions. Then the interview is over. If you're selected, there is normally a second interview with a manager. Then you get an offer.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you couldn't give a customer something you promised them.   View Answer

Interview Details – I was contacted by the HR Manager rather quickly, (less than a week). Set up an interview the following week. Interviewed and did very well. You interview with your own zone specific manager. Original offer was 16.25 and didnt accept. After an hour they called back and offered much more and I accepted. Went back for my drug test and background check the same day. Started the following 2 weeks.

Interview Question – Nothing too challenging.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Based on my experience it defaulted my pay to $16.25 and I declined however they were able to offer me $2.50 more.

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager

I applied online and interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – structured to a fault. If you are competent and you get to the interview point you should be good. I do think that your chances as an outside candidate are lower due to the experiences needed as an insider to score higher on the questions.

Interview Question – tell us about a time when you where not able to satisfy a customer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – here is the offer.

Sales Specialist - OPE Interview

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in July 2014.

Interview Details – Received a call from Hr for an interview came in was asked 12 questions Star format. One week still waiting to hear back. All questions were asked by Hr.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Chester, NY

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2014.

Interview Details – The hiring process was somewhat fast and stream lined. First there was an appointment for an interview set up by the HR person. Then that interview included questions asking for verbal examples of past situations on a previous job where by you helped a customer or solved a problem for a person in a retail setting. other questions were of a similar fashion asking you to tell of your experiences or situations where you helped or resolved or reported a situation to a manager where necessary. Then a manager comes in and basically asks you some very similar questions during that same visit. All this while taking note of your responses.

Interview Question – What would you do if you noticed a fellow employee not doing what was expected of him or her? Visa vie reporting that person to management.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiating. An offer of hourly wage and training start date was about it.
