    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.

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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lowe's in April 2014.

    Interview Details

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