    Interview Details

    i do not remember the interview process! but they mostly ask about customer service, and how you go about helping customers and making a lasting impression. They also want to know mistakes you made and how you went about fixing them.

    Department Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    An hour long interview with HR and Store Manager asking situational questions. It is hard if you have never been a manager before. Most of your answers need to be as if you were a manager. Which is hard to do when you have only been a seasonal associate. They all make sense but hard to answer for some people. I was lucky i previously owned my own business.

    Csa Front End Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Owatonna, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owatonna, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applying is a long process and pretty tedious. You also have to do an assessment, which does matter and if you fail, they won't get your application. They'll call you pretty promptly to set up an interview (mine was a day later). You'll interview with the HR person and either the store manager or an ASM and it's pretty straightforward and easy, they're pretty relaxed about it.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    They start off by introducing themselves. They ask about your job experience. The questions are the same no matter which department you are applying for. Mostly, it's about how you handle bad situations and how good you are at managing customers. They are "Tell me about a time when" questions. Then the interview is over. If you're selected, there is normally a second interview with a manager. Then you get an offer.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    I applied online - interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    structured to a fault. If you are competent and you get to the interview point you should be good. I do think that your chances as an outside candidate are lower due to the experiences needed as an insider to score higher on the questions.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    You can only apply to a specific opening. If there are no current openings you can not just submit your resume or application.
    The HR Manager selects 3 candidates to be interviewed, for every posted position, based on the relevance of your listed background to the position you're applying for.
    From there you will have just one interview conducted by the Store and the HR manager together. The select the best candidate of the three.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me how you handled conflicting and competing priorities between your customer, your supervisor and co-workers?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There is very little or no negotiation. They make you an offer and that number for the Assistant Manager Position is pretty much final. Take it or leave it. There may be room for negotiation at higher levels such as store manager.
