    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Vancouver, WA).

    Interview

    Filled out an application on the company careers page and was contacted for an interview about a month later by phone. Went into the store and spoke with the department manager and found out that they were considering me for the Loader/Customer Service Associate, which wasn't the one I applied for. I told the manager I didn't want that job, but they decided to go with the interview anyways. They asked me questions about my current work situation, availability, customer service history and skills, how I helped customers in the past solve problems and how I dealt with angry or dissatisfied customers. I got the chance to do a Q&A at the end then I was dismissed.

    Interview Questions

    • How well do you deal with angry or dissatisfied customers?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    Very traditional interview for a retail store employee including workplace skills, availability, etc. Generic personality interview questions, tested point of sale comfortability, reviewed prior work history, and asked to provide overall assessment of how you believe the current store location is operating. The human resources manager for the store ultimately asked for a follow up to discuss any preferences for store department placement, front of house, outdoors, that kind of thing and then provided an hourly offer and an understanding of their evaluation period. I would rate the interview as relatively simple.
