Customer Service Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2013.
Interview Details – There is an online application that includes basic resume information as well as scenario questions regarding how you would respond in certain real life situations. A few days later HR calls to set up an interview. The interview consisted of twelve longer questions given by the HR manager. The questions were about previous jobs, and how you handled problems in the workplace. When the HR manager finished he/she grabbed the department manager and the same 12 questions were asked. A week later they called and set up a time for a drug test (cheek swab).
Interview Question – Tell us about a time that you tried to solve a problem and failed. View Answer

Head Cashier Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online and got called 2ish weeks later. I had two interviews one with the HR manager and one with the Assistant manager. Both were pretty basic interview questions: tell me a time about this, explain a problem customer and how you dealt with them, tell me a time you were alone and leading a team, tasking and customer balance experience, etc. They offered me the position that day and I took the drug test and consented to the background check. I got called a little more than a week later with the results. (It took longer for me to get my results because the HR manager was going on vacation) Overall it was a great and fluid interview process!

Very Difficult Interview
Sales Specialist Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Lowe's in February 2011.
Interview Details – I applied for all of the jobs they told me to, and out of the multiple jobs I applied for, I only got interviewed for 2. They ask someone to apply and then do not even give them the chance. The people that apply are very qualified.
Interview Question – Think back to the beginning, and tell them about a upset customer and how you handled it. Answer Question
Installed Sales Coordinator Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Lowe's.
Interview Details – Position represented by HR Manager as a narrow and shallow scope or duties and responsibilities; false. The IS is at the nexus of multiple communication and responsibility lines. Dept managers and Assistant Store Managers transfer/default responsibility and fix blame on the ISC. Pay is 40-60% below job description and responsibilities. Don't be duped....
Interview Question – Questions were all about, "What was the most/Tell me of a time when...." View Answer
Negotiation Details – No

Interview Question – Really basic questions, nothing to hard Answer Question
Negotiation Details – there was not negotiation
Customer Service Associate II Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Lowe's in June 2014.
Interview Details – During the interview, I felt that they already knew exactly who they were going to hire. I was simply one of the CYA candidates. The worst hiring process I've witnessed. I always thought that Lowe's would be more professional than this. Many companies are falling victim to the INTERNET JOB SCREENING SCAM. Lowe's is willing to pay an internet company that "supposedly" specializes in the job screening process and will do it for far less cost than in house. Sounds great but never works that well. This is how companies end up asking totally stupid questions of a candidate. Companies need to get back to dwelling on the POSITIVE side of business.
