Kitchen Designer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cincinnati, OH
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
Application Details

I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in December 2010.

Interview Details

The interview focused on sales experience. They were looking for your sales skills and your ability to sell them you as an employee. The interviewers knew nothing about design and were not interested in my portfolio probably because they didn't have the ability to read blueprints. Also, there was no computer literacy component to the hiring process - which I later learned was a problem with their current employees.

Interview Questions
  • Name a time a customer was unhappy and what you did to turn the experience to a positive one. They were very interested in giving the customer a great experience even if the customer was not a good customer. If you could demonstrate a superior ability to deal with difficult people you were a contender for the job.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
There was no negotiation. They were authorized to offer an hourly rate and you could take it or leave it. Other benefits like vacation, scheduling, and sick leave were also mandated and not open to negotiation.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview with the HR woman and she informed me I got the job on the spot. But it took her TWO WEEKS to call and schedule my drug test, I ended up calling myself and reminding her I needed to have it done. She is extremely unorganized.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask generalized, common interview questions. Nothing super complicated.   View Answer

    She told me what the corporate office was offering, I didn't argue about it.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Lowe's in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Have had several interviews with various HR people only to have them move to another store or position. With one HR manager, he was very interested in what I had to say but got no feedback what so ever. I continued to .followed up and then he was gone.

    With another, I was one of a few being considered for a position...very professional and upbeat HR person. I had to keep walking in the store and following up. I had a one on one interview and the HR manager was extremely impressed. I was one a few selected for consideration, however, no decision was made and the HR person moved out of the position. Turns out I was told I was overqualified.
