    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    You will be called in and asked several questions about scenario's you have faced in past jobs or life experiences. Answer the questions to the best of your ability and be honest. They want to know that you will not flip out on customers or employees. It's actually more difficult to mess up these questions than pass them, you just need to give reasonable answers and think before you speak.

    Interview Questions
    • What makes you the strongest candidate? It doesn't sound difficult but if you're not prepared to analyze yourself and competition without meeting them or being judgmental it can be hard to answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. The computer generates a compensation rate based on the store's current success.

    Call Center Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I first met with some Lowe's representatives at a jobs fair for veterans. They recommended that I apply online, then I had to complete 2 online questionnaires. One of the online questionnaires was timed and I believe its main purpose was to see how you perform under pressure since there were too many questions to complete in the time limit (I was going as fast as I could as well). After that, there was a phone screen and then an on site interview.

    Interview Questions
    • It's difficult for me to remember any difficult questions and I believe this is because they were all standard behavioral questions that you would expect. The one thing that did somewhat throw me off guard was that the interviewer began in an informal/conversational manner and then began with the scripted interview questions. Everything was standard.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The job paid $14.04/hr and I received a better offer. However, everyone I met associate with Lowe's seemed to love it there and this almost made me second guess my decision-I only declined because of the money.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    A mass interview for the Spring seasonal hiring. I want to say that about fifty people were interviewing for maybe thirty store wide jobs. I had worked at a home center before, so I was fairly calm and the company was fairly nice during the interview process. It was run well for a mass interview.

    Negotiation Details
    I was one on one with the store manager in his office. I should have held out for more, but we all make mistakes.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    They asked the basic questions...
    What is your greatest weakness
    How do you respond to conflict
    In your own words, how do you define leadership
    Why do you want to work here

    Glass door is now making me write more words. I really don't feel like it. This could be a great tool but... Im using this to research a company I am going to apply to work for.

    To be honest. Please, Please, Please. If you really have to research informations for a retail job at Lowes, you might need to ask yourself what the heck are you doing.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first had an interview with the HR manager, she asked situational questions. Mostly about how I dealt with customers at my previous employer. Then I had an interview with the assistant manager, he asked pretty much the same questions. In all they asked between 15-20 questions. They are pretty much easy questions, if you can't think of a particular time of a incident they ask you, just make up an answer.

    Interview Questions
    • The only thing I didn't like was that after I was done with my answer she kept asking so what did you do after that, and then what, and then after that happened what happened then. I really wasn't expecting to give super long descriptions of everything.   Answer Question
