Application

I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lowe's (Webster, NY) in March 2015.

Interview

I first filled out a fairly long online application. You have to take a survey and answer a bunch of question which was basically a big filter to keep out anyone who did not have common sense or was brain dead. Lots of ethics questions but you basically just have to answer the questions with common sense. The I got a brief Phone call interview to start. Then I was asked to come in for an in-person interview. The HR person was nice and asked me a series of question similar to the online questions. She wrote down my answer. I also did am Oral drug screen and signed off for a back ground check. I got called and offered a job the next day subject to a clean drug screen and background check. I started work 10 days later.

    Interview

    Horrible. They told me it was not necessary for me to dress formal (I had a dress shirt, dress pants, and a tie). I guess they never cared about people looking nice for the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me the same questions that were on the online form. Very lazy in my opinion.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lowe's (Chester, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was somewhat fast and stream lined. First there was an appointment for an interview set up by the HR person. Then that interview included questions asking for verbal examples of past situations on a previous job where by you helped a customer or solved a problem for a person in a retail setting. other questions were of a similar fashion asking you to tell of your experiences or situations where you helped or resolved or reported a situation to a manager where necessary. Then a manager comes in and basically asks you some very similar questions during that same visit. All this while taking note of your responses.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if you noticed a fellow employee not doing what was expected of him or her? Visa vie reporting that person to management.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiating. An offer of hourly wage and training start date was about it.
