    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Two on one interview. ASM and HR manager both present normally but I got the store manager, Situational tell-me-about-a-time-when kind of questions no one really stores the answers to. Those interviewing will not provide feedback on the answers but will prod you if you cant think of something. One can also skip questions if needed. If you pass the first round you go into the second round. Policy wise they have to interview at least three people before making a decision.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Being I was already a Lowes employee it wasn't quite as nerve racking as my initial interview, but a lot of the questions were the same. One question was "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" Which is very broad, but if Lowes is your career choice, you should probably include that in your future. Another line of questioning had to do with your ability to handle different situations, especially involving customers. The key that gets you hired for Lowes is how well you do on your interview(s) and very little to do with your knowledge/experience.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Pay is based on experience and education and benefits are offered for full time employees. Negotiating was easy..didn't have to do much of it.
