    RTM Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online with a standard application. There was a personality test which measured your responses based on a scale of 1-5. After that, they may direct you to an in-person interview at the store you would be working at with the assistant store manager. I received an offer 2 weeks after the interview was complete.

    The manager was pretty stone faced and gave nothing away so I felt that it was over after a week of waiting but I was confident I answered well and with relevant examples.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are standard and behavioral.

      They'll ask you about your leadership, integrity, safety, customer service, initiative, and teamwork.

      There is little room to start a conversation.   Answer Question

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Torrance, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lowe's (Torrance, CA).

    Interview

    structured interview questions as always. Good luck with that. They'll never ask you about your previous experience. And do you know what a +2 is..?? That means you were interviewed to fulfill hiring regulations that require them to interview 2 external candidates for every employee they interview. THAT'S why they have no questions afterwards. Just want you outta there. OR your interview will be attached as an external interview anytime after, 6months or more, to fulfill these 'labor' laws. An incredible joke created by clueless labor laws....

    How do you know if you're a +2 interview..? If they call you in the morning and tell you they need to interview you that day, you're a +2. That's b/c they want to get their internal employee in place, ready to go, the following Monday. Asst Mgr tells me i'll hear back in 2 days, the in-store HR says 1-30 days. Think they're reading from the same playbook...?? Nope...

    Head Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lowe's (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had two interviews. This position is not the one I originally applied for; I was hoping for Department Manager as I was looking to build upon my management experience and make a little more money. They had to turn me down for that job after the first interview because I go to school twice a week and need those two days off. So be aware that if you do not have open availability you cannot be considered for full-time positions. They called me in for a second interview for the Head Cashier position which is still somewhat management but is part-time and works around availability requests a little better. In both interviews, I was asked the 8-10 or so questions they read off a script that you can find in a lot of the other reviews. There's no excuse for not passing the interview if you review these questions and prepare for them. You will have to be specific and it can get a little nerve wracking when both the HR manager and asst manager are staring at you asking those questions, but as long as you have confidence and answer honestly you should pass. I did not have to interview with the store manager but I think it might vary by store and position who you interview with.

    Interview Questions

    • "Describe a situation where you and a manager or coworker had conflicting opinions about an issue and the steps you took to resolve this issue and/or reach a compromise."   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not need to negotiate as I was offered more than expected.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lowe's (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interview with General manager. If you have strong interview skills, you can get a job at Lowe's. If you truly enjoy retail, then communicate this to the interviewer. Genuineness is warranted here because you can't fake it here at Lowe's.
