    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lowe's (Roanoke, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through Indeed, received phone call for interview within one week. Interview was with Store manager and Assistant manager. Questions were just like previous reviewers have given example: Tell me about a time that you sold something. I was told that they were making a decision at the end of the week and that I would hear back from them, it felt positive. I sent a Thank you letter.

    Never heard another thing from them, just disappeared. I expected at least a form letter in the mail but nothing, rather unprofessional I thought.
