    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview Details

    The interview is not that hard, but if this is your first interview and you've never had a job before it can be a little difficult . I got through by using experiences from school . The main thing is always be prepared to have more than a two sentence answer for the questions and this is coming from what my boss told me when I asked him what I could do to move up in the company. Oh and remember when they ask you a follow up question on an answer you was struggling with - THINK UP SOMETHING FAST ! They are trying to help you so they can give you a better rating on their paperwork . The main thing is to stay calm and be prepared . Usually if you get an interview you get the job they interviewed you for 70% of the time and you usually get hired the same day. You have to have three interviews with three managers .

    Interview Questions
    • "Name a time when you went out of your way to help a customer . " Simple but crucial question. For some it'll be easy for people who've never had a real job before this will be tough ,but just give an honest well thought answer and you;ll be fine ,   Answer Question

    Csa Front End Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Lowe's in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online for a CSA Front End position and got a call back later that day about coming in for an interview on that position. When I arrived, I could immediately tell it was a professional environment. I shook a few hands and filled out some paperwork and was immediately led back to the conference room where my interview would be conducted. I first interviewed with a assistant customer service manager and then did my second part of the interview with the direct hiring manager. Both interviews lasted about 15-20 minutes long for a grand total of about an hour for the full process. At all times I felt I was in a professional environment and was respectably dealt with. I was very interested in what each of the managers had to say and how they felt about the entire interview process. In the end, I was very satisfied and all of my questions/concerns were answered on the spot in a very professional manner.

    Interview Questions
    • "When presented with a new or challenging task, how did you handle it and was the outcome successful or unsuccessful?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation phase was simple. The advice I would give is to be as professional and confident as possible. When asked questions, really give specifics and evaluate in the best way possible. Show them you aren't just there for an interview. Show them you are there for the job and interested in becoming an employee ASAP.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Lowe's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The questions I was asked would have been for management to handle, not the employee therefore making it extremely hard to say what the interviewees want to hear. I was not prepared for some of the questions and not knowing exactly what they were looking for in my answers. Maybe a second interview would help by different personal in the future.
