    Interview

    New interview process. Have to pass pre interview before you can be considered to go on to real interview. Its 10 questions as always and they are all situation based questions...if you were in this situation what would you do? Categories ranging from customer service, sales, loss prevention, and pretty much common sense. You either have what they are looking for or you don't. Benefits them to hire someone in house when its last minute decision. To make themselves better they hire someone outside the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lowe's (Webster, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I first filled out a fairly long online application. You have to take a survey and answer a bunch of question which was basically a big filter to keep out anyone who did not have common sense or was brain dead. Lots of ethics questions but you basically just have to answer the questions with common sense. The I got a brief Phone call interview to start. Then I was asked to come in for an in-person interview. The HR person was nice and asked me a series of question similar to the online questions. She wrote down my answer. I also did am Oral drug screen and signed off for a back ground check. I got called and offered a job the next day subject to a clean drug screen and background check. I started work 10 days later.
