    Interview

    Applied online, got a call a few days later to schedule an interview. I Interviewed with 1 manager, Normally they have you with two but only one was available. Very fun and easy interview, the manager made it very easy. Mostly questions about work ethic and personality. He told me that they would know with in 3 days, but that he couldn't promise me what rate of pay I would be getting because it is based on experience (which I had lots of in sales and retail). They called me the next day to make the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    In the Chicago area, there are no longer HR managers in-store, so hiring is outsourced. So being an internal candidate, I didn't have to do the initial phone screening. I was called to schedule an interview based off my work schedule. I was eligible to do a phone interview if unable to do a in-person because my schedule didn't allow it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lowe's (Manassas, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very generic questions asked. I was interviewed by the HR manager who was friendly and easy going. They write down your responses, and it was only 8-10 questions. Try to give a variety of past experiences not just from 1 job to show that you learned from every point in your work career.

    Interview Questions

    • have you had any bad relation with a co-worker and how did you resolve the problem.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Clermont, FL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Lengthy. They ask a lot of standardized questions that I feel doesn't let them know actually why type of employee you could actually be. It seems very in personable. The entire interview is just answering questions they read off a list.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time you went above and beyond for a customer.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no real negotiation. They give you job description and tell you what salary is based on a matrix put in a computer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Hattiesburg, MS) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Typical sales interview, replete with buzzwords and jargon, rhetorical questions and minor psychological evaluation to see if you're enough of a self-starter to work on commission. I don't enjoy competing with other members of my own team to achieve a common goal; would much rather work together to land a sale. That wasn't the environment in this particular store, so I didn't make the cut. They were impressed with my dress and bearing, but wanted more aggressive answers and attitudes toward landing the sale. Perfectly reasonable, I suppose.
