Seasonal Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee in Wake Forest, NC
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowe's (Wake Forest, NC) in March 2013.

Interview

It went well - if you get a call, show up ahead of schedule. Make eye contact, smile, and be prepared to answer questions. Since you will be dealing with customers, they are looking for someone who is able to interact well with other associates as well as providing great customer service.

Interview Questions

  • You will get several questions that start with, "Tell me about a time ...." It might be, you dealt with a difficult customer or you worked on a project with someone else or when another employee wasn't doing his or her job and how you dealt with the situation.   1 Answer

Negotiation

It was an entry level position so no negotiations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Vernon Hills, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    As I'm currently out of state for school, they did a phone interview. They called me about 2 hours after I submitted my application, I called them back and we set a day and time for the phone interview (today), and she (HR) proceeded to read from a sheet of situational questions, most requiring me to look back on past work experiences. After about 5 questions, the front manager (or something) came and asked another probably 6 questions. They told me they'd get back about the job by the end of the week.

    Interview Questions

    • None were necessarily unexpected or difficult. I think the most surprising thing was that they didn't ask me what my strengths and weaknesses are.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None, it was an hourly position with a high pay.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lowe's (Anderson, IN).

    Interview

    This was your typical interview that you could expect for a cashier position. I went through three separate interviews, one with the HR representative, one with the assistant manager, and a final one with the General manager. After the final interview I was offered a job on the spot. I then went over information on the job and pay and was given a mouth swab drug test.

    Interview

    Was, at first, hired as a seasonal cashier (later became a regular position). Applied online a received phone called from HR a few weeks later. Was interview was a few days later. HR manager was very friendly and out going. So I matched her energy. Typical run of the mill form questions that almost anyone who has had a customer service job should able to handle. Was given a second interview on the spot by an ASM. ASM was a nice guy but much more quite and less out going. Basically asked the same questions. Drug tested on spot (cotton swap). Received a phone call a few days later with an offer that I accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions are all situational ( give me a time when..). None stand out as uncommonly hard or unexpected if you have had an interview with form questions before.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Was able to negotiate start date. Pay was above average for alike jobs in my area so I did not try to negotiate pay.
