Head Cashier Interview

Head Cashier
Orlando, FL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2011.

Interview Details – Just like any other interview the basic "tell us about a time" questions. You first get a call to set up interview then meet with HR manager. After that you arte called back for an interview with the area manager that you applied for. Next you are drug test and background tested. These take the longest about two weeks. If everything comes back good you get an offer and start during within 5 days. First you go through one week computer training about 5 hours for 5 days!

Interview Question – Tell us about a time where you disagreed with a manager on the way something should be done?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Nope they offered me a great rate and I accepted

Assembler Interview

Assembler
Ames, IA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Lowe's in December 2011.

Interview Details – After applying online I waited a couple days before I got a call asking me to set up an interview. I called back that day and set one up for three days later. After sitting down with the assistant manager I was asked basic STAR questions, none of which pertained to the job. He said he liked me and would call in the store manager. 30 minutes later, after growing through the same questions, I was offered a job. I asked for a dollar raise and got it! Just go in there ready to talk about how you have made mistakes but fixed them in a professional manner, and they will hire you.

Interview Question – They wanted an example of a time that I made a mistake that hindered store operations.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I asked for a dollar raise and received it. Just ask, the way Lowes is structured you are not hurting your chances. They low-ball the first offer.
