    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    I had a very pleasant interview for an Operations Coach position. The interviewer was friendly, courteous and personable. He explained the company, position, culture, and on-boarding process. I felt completely at ease speaking to the interviewer. He explained that this was the first part of the process (telephone interview) and if I make it to the second part I would be required to interview in person. Phone interviews can be difficult but, as I first stated, this was a very pleasant experience.
