    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call the next day to set up an interview for the following Monday. Interview was behavioral interview questions, they were pretty straight forward. The interviewer would let you skip a question and come back to it last, which was different for me. A few days after the interview I got a call saying I got the job pending a background check and a drug test. Took about two weeks total before I started working.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lowe's (Sarasota, FL (US)).

    Interview

    Very easy process. They have to go off of a pre-determined form that lists the questions. There is little wiggle room and most of the questions are "tell me about a time..". Not very HR specific at all. It was a an initial phone screen by the Area HR Manager and then a group interview with the area HR and the store manager.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lowe's (Cypress, TX (US)).

    Interview

    It was during their peak season and they were busy with candidates all day. When it was mine turn I had to interview in the electrical room which was awkward. I had three interviews that day. The first two were with ASMs and the third with the SM. The SM at the time was not very friendly at all. Everything I said he would use against me. I almost turned down the job because of him.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was called a couple days later to come in for face to face interview. HR manager was very friendly. Once going through about seven behavior/experience questions, he asked if I had questions for him. He said they would make their decision over the weekend and call everyone back. They called back on Monday to let me know that they gave the position to an internal candidate, but would like to offer me a position as a seasonal cashier. Went ahead and accepted offer, which I was then asked to come in for a drug test. She said that the orientation would be in a week.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions that were asked were the same as listed from previous posts on Glassdoor. I went though and typed all questions that were asked in previous interviews and applied my experience and feelings to each question. Once in the interview, I was able to quickly respond with detailed answers.
      The only question that I had not seen on Glassdoor which threw me off was, "Tell me about a time you had to help others to get away from an unsafe situation?" I told the HR manager that I could explain a time that I had to inform my employer of a situation that was legally unsafe for the company and needed immediate attention. He said that would be fine.

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview

    Went in for an interview for windows and walls, I did fairly well but on their grading system one of the other two folks interviewed scored slightly above me. They however offered to bring me on in the paint department instead. The whole process took about a week and a half all together. They just utilized my interview scores from the prior interview.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation except for deciding whether or not I wanted to leave my prior job at Home Depot to move onto lowes. I was offered a set hourly wage based on prior experience. And I was promised to phase into a permanent position once seasonal is over.
