    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    It was during their peak season and they were busy with candidates all day. When it was mine turn I had to interview in the electrical room which was awkward. I had three interviews that day. The first two were with ASMs and the third with the SM. The SM at the time was not very friendly at all. Everything I said he would use against me. I almost turned down the job because of him.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    Very easy process. They have to go off of a pre-determined form that lists the questions. There is little wiggle room and most of the questions are "tell me about a time..". Not very HR specific at all. It was a an initial phone screen by the Area HR Manager and then a group interview with the area HR and the store manager.

    Customer Service Associate II - Windows and Walls Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    Went in for an interview for windows and walls, I did fairly well but on their grading system one of the other two folks interviewed scored slightly above me. They however offered to bring me on in the paint department instead. The whole process took about a week and a half all together. They just utilized my interview scores from the prior interview.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation except for deciding whether or not I wanted to leave my prior job at Home Depot to move onto lowes. I was offered a set hourly wage based on prior experience. And I was promised to phase into a permanent position once seasonal is over.

    Market Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Midland, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter reached out to me for 2 over the phone interviews, went to a face to face interview with the Regional Sales Director and the Market Director. Final over the phone interview with the Market Director and the Divsional Sales director

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was very scripted and asked for detailed examples of how you handled a particular set of issues. Wee very concerned about my area of residence and the amount of travel involved. While the interviewers stressed the amount of travel involved , they didn't fully consider the amount of time and travel required to make the position successful. The position itself was necessary, however, Lowe's lack of experience in managing true "outside sales" people was evident. The company is filled with "operators " with little to no experience handling outside sales staff. They gave the MSM's no true "powers" instead deferring to inexperience, arrogant store managers   View Answer

    Interview Details

    I was a college student at the time, and I wanted a summer job. I met with the HR manager who was very nice, and then I spoke with an assistant store manager. It was mostly behavioral questions, and to see if you were a personable and friendly person. I interviewed with several other people, and they hired maybe two out of the 7 of us.
