Internet Order Puller Interview

Internet Order Puller

Interviewed at Lowe's

Interview Details – I applied online through the internal job system. I was already employed at a different store, out of town. So, I essentially transferred to another store. But, had to fill out a new application as they don't officially do "transfers". The process was extremely simple. Interviewed over the phone. Asked a few simple questions and then hired immediately.

CSA Interview

CSA

I applied online and interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – Had first initial interview with the HR manager and had to come back for a second interview with the ASM(Assistant Store Manager) because he was on vacation. Relaxed environment with questions mostly centered around behavior in a certain situation. "Tell me about a time your faced a difficult situation and how did you overcome it...." Submitted a saliva drug test and was called back after 3 days and offered a position starting at $9.75. I declined because i wasn't happy with that pay. The HR manager stated she needed to get approval to offer me more. I told her to call me back. 2 minutes later she called back offering $10.25 an hour.

Pro Services Interview

Pro Services

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

Interview Details – The interview process was very easy, considering I was the only applicant. I would describe the interview process as awkward, and poorly delivered. I experienced a lack of communication between the human resources manager and assist store manager who interviewed me. I was not and still not sure if either person had ever interviewed someone before. I asked most of the questions.

Negotiation Details – None I was the only one who applied.
