    Head Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lowe's (Anaheim, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The whole process is a waste of time. If they like you you're in. If they don't like you, you're out. They will promote from within if you're a brown nose

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are basic but when the interviewer makes their notes, they only write down a small portion of your answer and base your "score" off that   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Received a call about a week after I completed the online application. Interviewed with HR manager. Signed a paper that said I understood the job description. She read off a sheet of paper and wrote down my answers. Mostly "describe a time when" questions. After that an assistant manager asked similar questions. Was called exactly a week later by HR manager with a job offer. I accepted and she sent the background check. Took 2 days to hear back. Went in for drug test (swab test on-site) the next day and given my start date.

    Interview

    I had two interviews in one day. First interview with the Human Resources associate. Second with the store manager. It took a week or so for a call back, and I was told I got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly can't remember. The questions were pretty simple. I had never worked customer service let alone a hardware store so I didn't have experience in those departments.   Answer Question

    Head Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Hills, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lowe's (West Hills, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Like many other have already posted it asks very many redundant questions like "Describe a time when you ...and what was the outcome." I felt like the store manager already had the new candidate in mind when they interviewed me so I got the sense of being rushed and not being wanted to be interviewed which made me feel very uneasy. The also did not give me the courtesy of telling me that I was going to be interviewed that day so I was not in proper attire. When I know that they always let in store candidates know their date of interview.

    Interview Questions

    • What is something that has been an issue with you in the past, and how did you learn from it or overcome it.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    First I had a brief interview over the phone. Then I was told to come in and had an interview with the Hiring Manager and then with the Store Manager. They asked the usual questions. "Describe a situation in which you_____". There were about 6 of these questions. Then the Store Manager asked questions that had more to do with something you would encounter on the job. "How would you approach a customer?". Pretty much just questions that had to do with how you would help a customer with what they're looking for.

    Interview

    The process basically lasted about 3 weeks form the time I first applied to the time that I received an offer. The interview process involved 2 separate in person interviews. One interview with the Store Manager, and the other one with an HR representative. Both interviews revolved around personality questions and scenario based questions such as "How would you respond to a difficult customer?"
