    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Lowe's in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    APPLIED ON LINE AS A CURRENT EMPLOYEE, WAS SELECTED FOR AN INTERVIEW. I HAD A COUPLE OF DAYS TO PREPARE. STILL WAITING FOR RESULTS AND AN OFFER. Remember You don't have to take the offer it is negotiable. They don't want you to know that, but the salary really is negotiable! I know from experience! Also you can look up the average salary for the position that you are applying for on this site. If and when you get an offer to accept the job, you can say that you are interested in accepting but either take what they offer you or negotiate formore. I know of people that got over $2.00/hr more than was offered. Don't get too greedy and find out that they hired someone else.

    Interview Questions
    • Thinking back to a time when you had a difficult customer...how did you handle it?, what did you do?, what was the outcome????   View Answer

    I had a phone interview and was offered the position the next day, I accepted it. The questions are the same because they come off of a form. They are situational questions, like if you had a problem with a customer, how did you handle it.

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lowe's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Most Sales Specialist interviews are scheduled with at least 24 hours advanced notice. The interview questions are Behavioral Interview questions, which Lowe's calls Situational Interview questions. If you have not held such a position previously, it will be difficult to answer the questions from a Sales Specialist perspective.
