    Interview

    Typically star behavior questions. They interview 3 candidates for an opening and then grade the interviews after. The best one gets the offer. Expeience in customer service is more desired than real world experience with the products they sell.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lowe's (Lawton, OK) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called the very next morning for an interview. The process was comfortable and the questions asked were designed to get the maximum amount of information about the my experience and skills without feeling interrogated. I was told I would receive a call within 5 days to let me know if I needed to come in for the drug test or didn't get the job. I was called the very next day to come in for drug test by that Friday and to ask me if I would accept the job. I went in for the drug test and filled out some paperwork and was told I would be called with the start date. I was called that Monday and given the date to start. Very professional and one of the best interview I have had.

    Interview Questions

    • What do I, as an employee, bring to their company. How do I handle high levels of stress. How many years customer service I have had. Would I be interested in moving up in the company, as they try to hire internally first with any opening. Was I interested in medical benefits as well as other benefits. Did I have a problem with taking a drug test   Answer Question

    Interview

    About a week or two after I applied I got a call from the HR department and was asked to come in for an interview in a few days. I was asked some questions about my experience and then was asked to wait and interview with the assistant store manger in half an hour. I was asked more about my experience and 9 typical interview questions about customer service, safety, and basic personality traits. Both interviewers were very friendly and made me feel very welcome. I received a final call back a few days later and interviewed with the store manager. Again it was a very positive experience and he was very straightforward and friendly. I received an offer and accepted it.
