    Commercial Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seneca, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lowe's (Seneca, SC) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The questions are good. Here's thing though. The management grades you on a point system. So if they like someone else, all they have to do is say they scored higher than you. It's all the opinion of the manager doing the interview. When your applying for a management position the point system doesn't count anymore. It's who a$$ kisses the most. (Seen it time and time again)

    Interview Questions

    • Why did Lowe's rid of SALES INCENTIVES? (commission) This drives salesmen to sell SOS orders.   3 Answers

    Negotiation

    No negotiation process. Either you want the job or not.
