    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    It was pretty straight forward. The Store Manager or Assistant Store manager and the HR manager go back and forth asking approximately seven questions, all pertaining to previous job experiences. They give you plenty of time to answer the questions, as some of them may require the candidate to reach into their "vault" of previous work history.

    Interview Questions

    • Not sure of any questions specifically. There were quite a bit of "Tell me about a time when..." questions.   Answer Question

    Sat in waiting room with other associates that were interested in the position as well. Called back to the HR office.

Questions began to be read off paper.

    Interview

    Complete cookie-cutter, read from the paper interviews. Very impersonal. They ask you the same questions they have to regarding the position with very little attempt to personalize the interview. While it is only a retail job, they could try to make it less robotic so we could maybe get into the interview more to become more enthusiastic about the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Two on one interview. ASM and HR manager both present normally but I got the store manager, Situational tell-me-about-a-time-when kind of questions no one really stores the answers to. Those interviewing will not provide feedback on the answers but will prod you if you cant think of something. One can also skip questions if needed. If you pass the first round you go into the second round. Policy wise they have to interview at least three people before making a decision.

    Interview Questions

    • Rate your level of knowledge in the following departments... after you choose your highest area...essentialy then asks how you would sell X in that department to a customer and what kind of add on's you could suggest (more product) and what values you could also sell (credit).   Answer Question
