    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lowe's (Silver Springs, Marion, FL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Ask you a bunch of questions and then if they like you they give you a mouth swab drug test that is flawed THC is what they said i failed for and won't retest me and I don't smoke. And i did some research and seen some people do dope right before the interview and pass the swab test. Goes to show you even if you don't do drug people are jealous of that and use their power when they can . I Guess God has a better job waiting for me.

    Interview

    It was a very casual interview. I had one interview with the HR manager and one interview with the store manager. I had both interviews in one day but usually they are on two separate occasions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I applied online and went in for an interview a little less than a week later. The interview was 5 fairly basic customer service questions. There was only one interview with the assistant manager. They're taking a little while to call back and tell me if I got it or not but they did say they have a lot of interviews for seasonal hiring and to expect a bit of a wait.

    CSA Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Johnson City, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lowe's (Johnson City, TN) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was asked 8 situational/behavioral questions. For each question, the interviewer wanted a very detailed example. The person who interviewed me asked me follow-up questions if my initial answer didn't cover all the details. They follow a standard company interview and make notes on your answers to score later. Despite this, my interviewer was very friendly, helpful, and kept the process as informal as possible. I got a call for an interview a few days after I applied and was called to come in for a drug test(just a swab test) a few days after my interview. Just waiting for the background check to come back to start with orientation. Definitely prepare some specific examples before you go in or it will be difficult to think of responses on the spot.
