    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Lowe's.

    Interview

    First round skype interview. Did not enjoy the experience at all because all questions were hypothetical behavioral questions that were hard to relay over the computer. Interviewer seemed to have scheduled the interview during they middle of the work day and they were not an actual recruiter so questions were read straight from a list and answers written down immediately. Only asked one technical question for what was suppose to be a technical role.

    • Give me a time when you had to make a difficult decisions about a fellow group and confront them head on?   Answer Question

    I applied for seasonal because it's easyer to get hired. And once I start working there I will switch positions.

    The manager will ask you questions about situations you've been in and how you would solve them... it's very easy as long as you had a experience like it. Then right you finish the interview you take your drug test.

    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.

    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.
