Weekend Sales Team Interview

Weekend Sales Team

I applied online and interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Question – The hardest question to me was that they all asked similar questions, so as not to repeat myself I had to come up with different scenarios for the same question for each interview.   Answer Question

Customer Service/Return Desk Associate Interview

Customer Service/Return Desk Associate

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2013.

Interview Details – I initially applied on Snag A Job and a week later I was called in for an interview and discussed the pay and when I would have to come in for training. After she gave me a drug test on the spot, a few days later I got a call to come in for training. I trained on a computer, watched videos and answered quizzes for a few days and then put on the floor to officially start. The whole interview process was relaxed and fun. Human Resources and I were joking and laughing and when other employees came into the training room everyone was laughing and joking around. It was nice to see that HR was close to the employees.

Interview Question – Describe a decision you made that was a failure. What happened and why?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiations.

Kitchen Designer Interview

Kitchen Designer
Cincinnati, OH

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in December 2010.

Interview Details – The interview focused on sales experience. They were looking for your sales skills and your ability to sell them you as an employee. The interviewers knew nothing about design and were not interested in my portfolio probably because they didn't have the ability to read blueprints. Also, there was no computer literacy component to the hiring process - which I later learned was a problem with their current employees.

Interview Question – Name a time a customer was unhappy and what you did to turn the experience to a positive one. They were very interested in giving the customer a great experience even if the customer was not a good customer. If you could demonstrate a superior ability to deal with difficult people you were a contender for the job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They were authorized to offer an hourly rate and you could take it or leave it. Other benefits like vacation, scheduling, and sick leave were also mandated and not open to negotiation.

Senior Systems Analyst Interview

Senior Systems Analyst
Mooresville, NC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2014.

Interview Details – Their interviews are a series of "panel interviews". The experience pitted me in multiple 1-hr interviews with 2-4 people on the other side of the table. The questions are mostly focused on your experience and how you handled yourself in various situations. My 1st interview was very negative as multiple interviewers were hostile in their questions. I later learned from another employee that there was political tension around the nature of the position I was applying for. My experience, while stressful difficult to sit through was something that I would doubt others would experience.

Interview Question – Most questions sound like similar variations of, "Tell me a time when..."   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I received a competing offer from another company.
