    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    Put in for job and about 3 weeks later HR contacted me to set up interview. after the interview it was about a week before I heard if I got the job or not. I had gotten the job so I had to come in for an oral drug test, which was sent off and I had to wait another week to actually start work. The whole process was about 5 weeks long.
