    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lowes Foods (Raleigh, NC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    They were having open interviews, so I decided to give it a try even though I had already submitted an application and heard nothing. The guy asked basic questions pertaining to my resume and application. After answering one of the questions, he started to argue with my response. It was very unprofessional. He was also unwilling to work around my other work schedule for some reason. When I came back to tell him I am declining any offers, he just walked away without saying anything. That is how I knew I made the right decision to decline the offer.

    Brand Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lowes Foods (Winston-Salem, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They scheduled my interview 3 weeks in advance, they flew me 2,000 miles to NC and it was only scheduled for One hour. They started interview 20 minutes late. So, my interview was cut to 40 minutes for Brand Manager position requiring relocation. 2 people interviewed me for about 30 minutes and then my time was basically up. I got to ask only a few questions before I was escorted out. They flew me across country, interviewed me next morning, was alone all day driving around since they only planned for me to be in their office for one hour. They said they would call me week after interview (never did) and after I sent my thank you note, they emailed me to say it would be several weeks before they would get back to me. I followed up with a call after 2 weeks and a couple emails but they did not respond. It was over 2 months later when I called HR (left a voicemail) to follow-up one last time and then they finally emailed me to tell me that I didn't get the job. This was the rudest and most unprofessional interview/company that I have ever experienced. The communication was non-existent. I felt like my being there was an imposition on them. They never asked me to submit my receipts, never invited me to lunch or offered to show me the office or the city.

    HBC Clerk Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lowes Foods (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    When I went to the store to hand them my resume they happen to be hiring at that store for a new store about to open and with my experience I interviewed for that store. I filled out an application online then interviewed immediately after that. This is not the normal way this gets done. However, you do summit an application online and then may or may not get called in for an interview. I only interviewed with one person, but I do think on occasion you may interview with the co-manager and then the manager depending on the situation. Also, they normally only hire part-time workers. I got full-time when I started because it was a new store opening and I had the experience.

    Negotiation

    They offered me $10 and I asked for $11 which I got based on my experience. I always tell people to ask for more if they think they deserve it. All they can say is no.

Imy one of a kind. Ha!

    Interview Questions

    • My schedule. They were all over my availability. Could I be available on days I'd noted online I could not. Did I mind nights. Working alone? Mostly they wanted me to say I'd work 7 days a week. I even explained why I needed this one particular day off. But the corporate guys pushed on. It was weird.   1 Answer
