    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lowe's (Atlanta, GA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I was referred to a Lowe's Company Director by one of their officers. The Director started with a phone interview lasting 10-15 minutes, trying to gain general knowledge of my experience. The questions were not difficult. Two weeks later I was invited to an interview wherer the Director and his boss met me for an 1.5 hours at their office. The interview was very scripted. They both had a multi page questionnaire and were taking notes the entire time. They informed me that it was standard procedure and that everyone interviewing for the position would receive the same questions. I was informed that they would be getting back to me in around two weeks. Have not heard from them yet. Overall they were pleasant and personable but stuck to the script.
