You are given scenarios of retail situations and asked how you should respond. Then, you may or may not be called for an interview with the HR manager. If they like you, you will move on to interviewing with the store manager or an assistant manager. Lastly, you will need to pass a drug test where they basically just swab your cheek.

Negotiation Details – I was recomended by a current associate for the position and that particular associate made a higher then usual hourly rate, and I got what she got and I put her name on my paperwork as a reference.

Interview Details – Applied for the job after seeing a posting for seasonal sales help. Applied online, requesting a starting salery LOWER than i would accept. I had 3 different interviews. Tow with the HR department, and one with the department manage. After asking for only 10 hours per week, they pushed me into taking a min. of 15-20 hours a week. You must be willing to work every weekend and nights. Don't expect any time off when you ask for it. They demand that you don't trade off you shift with another sales person.I don't think the management are really in touch with the needs of the employee.
Interview Question – What experience can you bring to the department being considered? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was unable to negotiate any issue. Probably because I was just a seasonal employee
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in February 2011.
Interview Details – When I was first hired on at lowe's it was a seasonal position. I went to work everyday and got there early if I could and was never late. They saw how hard I worked so they gave me a part-time position on the stocking crew. 9 months later I applied for the millwork specialist job. It was in a different store. She called me for an interview about 3 days after I applied online. You have to be very positive in these interviews, they ask you alot of things how you handled problems in your past job. You have to try to give as much detail as you can, also they are looking at how well you work with others, (IF YOU ARE A PEOPLE PERSON).
