Customer Service Associate II Interview

Customer Service Associate II
Knoxville, TN

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.

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.

Interview Question – Have you handled a difficult situation with a co-worker? How?   Answer Question

Internet Order Puller Interview

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.

Interview Question – Simple questions   Answer Question
