Kitchen Designer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2012.
Interview Details I got an interview with the HR woman and she informed me I got the job on the spot. But it took her TWO WEEKS to call and schedule my drug test, I ended up calling myself and reminding her I needed to have it done. She is extremely unorganized.

Sales Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lowe's in April 2014.
Interview Details The hiring process was somewhat fast and stream lined. First there was an appointment for an interview set up by the HR person. Then that interview included questions asking for verbal examples of past situations on a previous job where by you helped a customer or solved a problem for a person in a retail setting. other questions were of a similar fashion asking you to tell of your experiences or situations where you helped or resolved or reported a situation to a manager where necessary. Then a manager comes in and basically asks you some very similar questions during that same visit. All this while taking note of your responses.
Interview Question – What would you do if you noticed a fellow employee not doing what was expected of him or her? Visa vie reporting that person to management. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not much negotiating. An offer of hourly wage and training start date was about it.
