She asked me the 5 questions and wrote down my answer on each paper. The interview lasted no more than 15 minutes and all the questions were based on past experience as many others have said about Lowes.
    Basic structure of the interviews questions were "Name a time when..." followed by "What did you do/How did you handle it"

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lowe's in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by the assistant store manager over the administrative area of the store as well as the administrative department manager. They each had a list of different questions that appeared to be a standardized corporate interviewing packet, and they took turns asking their respective questions taking notes on my answers. After my interview a decision was made within the week, and I was given follow-up advice on my interview, and I was offered to be worked with on my experience in the company so that I would be better qualified if a similar position opened up as I was a current employee at the time of the interview.

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's in February 2015.

    The process is quite simple. They go through your app and questionnaire electronically. Then if you make it through that you will get a call from a human resources person asking you for an interview. From there they will set you up a time and place for said interview. That's when you let your charm loose.
