Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Lowes interview

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.
