Sales Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Marshall, TX
Anonymous Employee in Marshall, TX
Application Details

I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Lowe's in February 2011.

Interview Details

I applied for all of the jobs they told me to, and out of the multiple jobs I applied for, I only got interviewed for 2. They ask someone to apply and then do not even give them the chance. The people that apply are very qualified.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process is different now than when I started. After submitting an application, you may get a call from a company which conducts a phone interview. The phone interview will ask questions about your background and typical screening questions. If you do well on the phone interview, you will get a call from the HR manager at the store, who will arrange an interview at the store with 2 or 3 managers.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell us about a situation when you realized you had make a bad mistake and what you did to correct it. Don't throw back a softball on this one. Your response will be a good indicator of your personality and your ability to own and fix your mistakes.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Your initial salary will affect most of your career pay at Lowe's. Annual raises are similar across the board and don't vary much from a fixed percentage. The HR manager has some flexibility so be sure and counter their offer. You may not get any more but it's important to ask.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    There were two interviews, one on phone and the other in person. Pretty simple if you have sales experience. They are looking for that typical retail associate who thinks of customers first.

    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.
