    Out of two internal employees and one external person applied. One employee was interviewed and the other wasn't.

    Commercial Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buford, GA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Buford, GA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Interview process was fairly well thought out, corporate is doing their job. There is redundancy in the 'personality' test, as in answering many of the same questions online and in the interview. Overall, it impresses me that they (corporate) are in tune with the needs of an employee. My only complaint is that personally, someone from the interview team should have more feedback for me- my follow up phone call after having left on the note of "I am just trying to figure out where I can put you..." was answered with a vague "We haven't decided yet."

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lowe's (Las Cruces, NM) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Interview with the assistant store manager as well as the store manager. Most questions begin with "tell me about a time" and test your customer service skills in various situations. To prepare think of different customer situations from your past experiences to avoid any long pauses. However it is OK to ask then to repeat the question if you do hey confused or stumped this will buy you some time.

    Commissioned Sales Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lowe's (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I walked in and asked to meet the store manager. He interviewed and hired me immediately. This was due to my high energy level, confidence and experience. The interview was a calculated, scripted one and they physically wrote down my answers. My experience as a Regional Account Executive for a national direct mail company, from which I was downsized, enabled me to interview with confidence.
