    I applied online. I interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview

    structured to a fault. If you are competent and you get to the interview point you should be good. I do think that your chances as an outside candidate are lower due to the experiences needed as an insider to score higher on the questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Ozark, MO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was extremely brief. I was contacted for an interview the next day however I was already working at my current job so they asked to schedule the interview later that afternoon. Interview was held with the Store Manager and HR manager and lasted roughly 30 minutes. I was called back with a job offer the next. Interview process consisted of reading and signing a position overview, reviewing background information and 8 situational based questions.

    Interview Questions

    • All interview questions were situational based. Give me an example of, tell me about a time when, etc.
      Specific question was "Tell me about a time when you weren't able to satisfy a customer."   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Offer declined due to inability of Lowe's to meet salary requirements, short training period (1 week before being placed fully in role), and low work life balance due to rotating 4 week schedule.
