Seasonal Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stony Brook, NY

Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lowe's in March 2015.

Interview Details

Very straight forward. They just asked 8 questions about previous work experience. They are just looking to make sure you are literate and moderately smart. Sometimes if you do not have an answer to a question it is better to just talk about an experience you have had that is similar. If they ask you a question that is unrelated to your work experience just try to come up with something.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lowe's in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I got a call to come into an interview the same day I applied. Spring is hiring season at home improvement stores. But unfortunately that means most of the positions are seasonal. I interviewed with HR, and they were very nice. There were about 5 questions that were asked about past experiences. You don't need to know anything about home improvement/hardware to be a cashier here, all they want is people to be friendly! They offered to pay me between $9.50-$10 an hour, and said that I could work up to 40 hours a week during busy weeks. It's great pay for the amount of work, but I declined because I wanted something long term and steady.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied Online. Got a phone Call 2 days later to set up interview for next day. Got a call 4 weeks later...offered me the job and asked to come up for a drug test/background check. The reason it took so long is said is b/c she interviewed all the seasonal applicants.

    Well I only had one interview and it was with the store manager. I came in sat down and she had about 5 pieces of paper each with one question on it. She asked me the 5 questions and wrote down my answer on each paper. The interview lasted no more than 15 minutes and all the questions were based on past experience as many others have said about Lowes.
    Basic structure of the interviews questions were "Name a time when..." followed by "What did you do/How did you handle it"

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time you had to do a duty on the job that was potentially dangerous.   Answer Question
    • Name a time when you above and beyond for a customer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lowe's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    As I'm currently out of state for school, they did a phone interview. They called me about 2 hours after I submitted my application, I called them back and we set a day and time for the phone interview (today), and she (HR) proceeded to read from a sheet of situational questions, most requiring me to look back on past work experiences. After about 5 questions, the front manager (or something) came and asked another probably 6 questions. They told me they'd get back about the job by the end of the week.

    Interview Questions
    • None were necessarily unexpected or difficult. I think the most surprising thing was that they didn't ask me what my strengths and weaknesses are.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None, it was an hourly position with a high pay.

    Interview Details

    This was your typical interview that you could expect for a cashier position. I went through three separate interviews, one with the HR representative, one with the assistant manager, and a final one with the General manager. After the final interview I was offered a job on the spot. I then went over information on the job and pay and was given a mouth swab drug test.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and within a few days called the hr manager to inform her I had put in an application, and she took down my name and number. About two weeks after, she contacted me by phone for an interview at the store. I arrived at the store and interviewed with her; she asked six "tell me about a time when..." questions and wrote down my answers. she was very nice and professional, and allowed me a few moments to think of an answer if I needed to. Directly after interviewing with her I was interviewed by the department manager who asked me six more "tell me about a time when..." questions and the generic "why do you want to work here, why should we hire you questions". As soon as the interview was over the department manager told me I had a great interview and offered me the position. I then was directed to take a drug test right then and there, and as soon as the results cleared I would be starting within a few days.

    Interview Questions
