Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Lowe's in August 2012.

Interview Details HR department called after about 2 months. Set up interview at the store. Came in for a 45 minute interview with HR manager and store manager. Just basic questions in regards to customer service, personnel, and store procedures. Store manager called me within 3 days to offer me the position.

Customer Service Associate II Interview

Anonymous Employee
Siloam Springs, AR (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's in September 2013.

Interview Details Very straight forward, called several times until I was offered an interview. Interviewed with HR and a manager, mostly behavioral questions ("tell me about a time"). Very friendly and easy to talk to. Just have good examples of customer service or sales skills.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you failed at something and how you corrected it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not really much negotiation, they give you a starting pay that goes up based on performance.

Millwork Sales Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Nashua, NH (US)

I applied online - interviewed at Lowe's in September 2010.

Interview Details You are asked to take a computer quiz first before coming in for interview that consists of about 50 questions. You are given scenarios of retail situations and asked how you should respond. Then, you may or may not be called for an interview with the HR manager. If they like you, you will move on to interviewing with the store manager or an assistant manager. Lastly, you will need to pass a drug test where they basically just swab your cheek.

Interview Question – I can't remember any specific questions but it would be beneficial to look up some generic retail questions and fake scenarios before going in for the interview. There is a specific retail etiquette that I was not familiar with.   Answer Question

Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details The company was very thorough and prompt at first. After applying on their website, I had a phone screening call within a week. This was followed up by a phone interview, and then an on-site interview. After the on site interview, it was downhill from there. It took another 7 weeks to notify me of their decision.

To keep informing me that a decision will be coming soon, following a 3+ month interview process, was extremely frustrating. When I did hear from them, it was an automated email indicating that they were moving in a different direction.

Interview Question – All questions were behavioral / situational type questions.   Answer Question

Information Security Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Mooresville, NC (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lowe's.

Interview Details Started with recruiter. Very basic stuff. Then a phone interview with potential manager, again nothing too difficult. Was brought onsite for an interview. Panel style. Lots of behavioural questions, describe a time when you did X, or when you did Y. Customer service focused, light on the technical details. Was really expecting more of a technical interview. People were friendly.

Cashier - Front End Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Dimas, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's in May 2011.

Interview Details Applied online and called the store asking to speak to the HR manager. Upon getting a hold of the HR asked if I thy would be available for me to shake their hand and put a face to my application. Two weeks passed and I got a call saying I had a interview the next day. Arrived early in slacks, shirt, tie, and a vest. Interviewed first with the zone manager and that week well. 5 minutes after I spoke to the HR and was offered the job on the spot.

Interview Question – "Describe a time when you went above and beyond in your customer service."   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – HR manager offered me 10.24$ which was above my previous job so I accepted immediately. After thinking about it I could have likely received more due to my experience.
