    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Lowe's in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, went in person to see store manager, got a phone call from HR person. Went in next day for interview with HR person and ASM. Got rejection email about 2 days later.

    Rather an unfair method to screen potential candidates. Company should use experience to screen out unqualified applicants rather than responses to interview questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was under the impression that I could prepare myself for the behavioral interview, and was sadly mistaken. I walked into the interview with an enourmous about of confidence and walked out feeling like a the gum on the bottom on their shoe. The questions were essay based, no prior review or knowlege given at all.

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed for a Distribution Management Trainee for Lowe's. They brought me in for an interview after an initial phone interview. It consisted of four managers asking me behavioral based questions for the first half hour. After that was complete, I took a tour of the facility and then took a personality test. After completing the personality test, I was interviewed again. The second interview was one on one. During, the second interview, one of the initial managers that interviewed me and told me that I had failed the personality test and they would continue looking at me as a candidate.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Madison, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, AL
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    To get an interview took a long time. Everything from the time you apply is automated so to call and express your interest in the position is almost useless. But i did, i even went after the managers at the store i was interested in an finally was able to speak with the hiring manger. the interview wasn't even an interview, by the time the whole process was over they had filled all the positions they needed. Basically they told me that the computer system returns a list of qualified candidates, and then the hiring manger only has to pick three for each position to interview and it's such a basic position that she just chooses randomly who to interview.
       The best way to get the job: (from her own words) apply to many stores, over and over. AS long as you are qualified, eventually your name will make it onto that list of three. and you'll be interviewed.

    Sales Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Well to be honest i was disappointed in the hr clerk. I was just about to start my interview when she decided to get on a conference call for a meeting I guess she was supposed to be a part of. So the whole time during the interview i was trying to conentrate and answer the questions while at the same time listening to HR issues throughout the company. It was totally unprofessional. On top of that you would think HR being the first contact for a new applicant would have a better attitude and be open. Not this lady. :(

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview to determine if I should fly out for face-to-face presentation. Was asked to visit facilities and interview. Put together a full-blown presentation and was interviewed by a panel of 7 execs. Did not hear anything for 2 weeks. When I placed a phone call to inquire about the position, I did not get a phone call back, but I did receive a rejection via email. A LOT of work for a simple email.

    Senior Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Mooresville, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mooresville, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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.
