Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lexington, NC
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lowe's (Lexington, NC) in July 2019.

Interview

Interviewed for a Sales Associate position with Lowe's Hardware. I have nearly 10 years of retail experience, a year of new home construction experience, remodeled two homes entirely with my own two hands, worked in building maintenance, and managed people so I am overly qualified for the position. Plus I have two college degrees. However I was emailed today that they were going with a different candidate and there is no way I was not qualified for the job. I was interviewed by the manager over the cashiers and not the one that would be over my department because she was absent. She did not come off as competent as an interviewer and was rushing the process. I think it is unfair that I was assessed by someone that had nothing to do with the department I was applying for and ultimately made the decision to give the job to someone else that no doubt is less qualified.
