Virginia Beach, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in March 2014.

Interview Details – After applying it took 3 weeks to receive a call for interview. Everything posted on here is correct. Be prepared for random people coming in and out, being around you during the interview process. Be prepared for many situational questions. Ultimately, they want to verify you're a team player and not a jerk to people. They want to hear stories about your success and but also ask for times that you have failed.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online, got a call immediately and then they scheduled an interview. Went to the interview, answered a few 'tell me about a time' questions. They're very accomodating and you wouldn't feel nervous at all. They told me that they'll keep in touch. Got a call 3 days later, scheduled an interview with the Store Manager, went to that interview same questions were asked, the interview didn't took that long. I'm still waiting for the results.

Interview Question – What are you most proud of?   Answer Question

Enterprise, AL

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – Applied for Sales Associate II. Received a call for an interview a week and a day later. The interview was the next day. Meet with the HR personnel. She gave me a printed out version of the job description that was previously online. Went into the interview portion after 10 mins. Interview questions were scenario based. (Describe a time when you.....). Time with her lasted 30 mins. Assistant store manager came in second. Interview with him lasted 20 mins. Same sort of questions but different than the ones the HR person asked me. Was emailed 3 days after interview that they chose to go with someone else.

Interview Question – None. All questions were very generic.   Answer Question

I applied online and interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – After submitting my application, less then a week later I received a call from HR and set q interview for the following day. I came in early, and was interviewed early. The first interview went well and asked if I had time for a second interview right now. Both interviews were wonderful, more like a conversation rather then endless questions.

Interview Question – Very standard, no surprises.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, and was happily surprised with the outcome. This is a company that cares about their employees and what people think.

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details – I applied online in February and it took a few weeks to set up initial first interview. I got called to come in next day. It was pretty straightforward. I was then called two days later to set up a second interview with GM. That went well and then I came in a week later to do a drug swab test. And orientation was a week after...So all in all it took a few weeks, but pretty easy enough.

Interview Question – They were all situation questions. Tell me about a time when you were dealing with a stressful customer /situation? What would you do if someone stole ? etc   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation. Accept whatever they give.
