    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Tucson, AZ).

    Interview

    Online Application, followed by a call for an interview by HR. It took a little while for them to get back to me after I submitted the application. I followed up a few times by phone to ensure that they had received everything. Once I was called in for the interview it was a 1:1 with one of the 3 general managers. It was straight forward.

    Negotiation

    I didn't feel like there was a negotiation option because it was a lower entry position. If I were to apply internally for positions after I had already acquired the initial positions I would have felt comfortable working with my manager to increase my wage.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lowe's in April 2012.

    Interview

    Called me. Brought me in for an interview. Asked me a few questions. Let me go. Called me back. Drug-tested me. Got the job.

    HR seemed a little aloof, probably more concerned with company policy than actual effectiveness, or timeliness of the interview and training process. Lowe's definitely has a lot of bureaucracy that gets in the way of the process. The break-room is a 24/7 indoctrination machine for company culture.
