Question 2 of 30
Tell me about a time when you had to work with someone you didn't get along with?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The interviewer wants to hear that you handle conflict appropriately in the workplace. If you have never dealt with conflict in the workplace, that is great! That might only work for a basic retail position at Lowe's. If you are interviewing for a higher-level job, you will need to recall a situation in which you handled a conflict with a co-worker.

Start off by sharing with the interviewer that you typically get along with your co-workers great, but from time-to-time, you might disagree with someone. Next, think of a time when you had a conflict with a co-worker. Tell the interviewer a brief overview of why you disagreed. Tell the interviewer that instead of continuing to be frustrated, it was better to talk about the situation to resolve it. Finally, be sure to mention that you and the person continued to have a respectful relationship following the conversation due to the way that you handled the situation.

Answer Example
"I get along with my co-workers and supervisors well, but there was one time when I worked with an individual whom I didn't get along with. The person seemed to disappear each time we were asked to pull in shopping carts from the parking lot. It wasn't a big deal, and I knew the supervisors saw his behavior. So I just let it be and continued to do my job."

Question 3 of 30
Have you ever worked on a house before? What was your project?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Think about a recent home project you have done. This can be anything from remodeling your home to putting on new light plate covers or painting in your apartment. Tell the interviewer, 'Yes, I have!' Follow this with a high-level overview of what project you tackled. If you used a DIY class at Lowe's to learn how to do your project, be sure to mention it!

If you have no remodeling or home improvement experience, do not worry! You can honestly say you don't, but you have a strong passion for home improvement. Tell the interviewer you hope to one day own a home and be able to work on it yourself.

Answer Example
"Yes, I have helped remodel my parents and grandparents bathrooms with my father. It was a great learning experience. When I own a home one day, I hope to pick up knowledge from working at Lowes and be able to do my home improvement projects."

Question 4 of 30
Do you prefer working in a team environment or alone?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Lowe's is very much a team environment. Start off by telling the interviewer that you prefer the team environment, and you are great at working alone too! If you had to choose one over the other, you would pick a team environment.

Answer Example
"I prefer working in a team environment, but I can work independently as well. At my previous job, it was common to work on display cases with a team but work alone while stocking particular aisles. "

Question 5 of 30
What are some of your weaknesses?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Pick weaknesses that are not a core skill for this position. You can be candid in your answer; recognizing that you aren't great at something and acknowledging your need to improve. Be sure to have an action plan in place for improving on this weakness.

Perhaps you are watching TED talks to gain skills in a particular area, reading the latest-and-greatest book on the subject, or maybe you are taking a seminar at a nearby community center. We are all human with our weaknesses, so don't be afraid to share yours!

Answer Example
"My knowledge of plants is limited. I would have to take on additional training if I was placed in lawn and garden. I enjoy the outdoors though so I would welcome that training with open arms!"
