    Application Details

    The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    First got a phone call from a lady in Chicago of all places. She was doing a phone screen. All questions were for an entry level position. She said someone from the store would review the answers and call me. Nobody did. Tried for same position for another location , was on phone with one gentleman with a lady in the back ground. Went well , they said they were very interested. However they said the position has been filled. " I'm thinking what was the point of calling then? " In all , the questions were very basic hardly related to a manager level. Since then, it has been a big turn off. Even as a consumer there.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview, then had on site interview with panel of about 6 other managers that I would be working with. The position was new and not very defined so most of the questions were general information about how I manage people and processes. The entire process took about 3 weeks and they were very flexible with my start date.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    The process starts with looking at the Lowes career site. After you find a position to apply for, upload your updated resume. Lowes will choose the top three applicants and offer an interview. After meeting and interviewing with the Area HR Manager and Store Manager, you might have to do an informal interview with the Regional HR Director. After that, wait until they either call with a job offer or you get an email telling you thanks but, you were not selected this time but please apply again for other opportunities.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions are situational based questions. They are all read from a list that corporate HR comes out with. Thus, they are all HR friendly and nothing too difficult if you have experience in that field or have a good dose of common sense.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The pay is ran through a computer program and it tells them what to pay you. There is in some cases a little room for negotiation but, they tend to stick with the computer rate results.

    Interview Questions
    • The hardest question to me was that they all asked similar questions, so as not to repeat myself I had to come up with different scenarios for the same question for each interview.   Answer Question
