You’ll want to be on your toes, so be sure to get a good night’s sleep prior to the interview and practice with some of our example questions below.
2. The Details
Once you’ve passed the interview, the next step is to start the administrative and legal aspects of being hired. This includes background checks, personality evaluations, drug tests, and a physical. After all of this, you will have your orientation and move into your new career!
Here are some potential questions you can use as practice. These Lowe’s job interview tips are sure to land you that position you want and deserve. Just remember to dress professionally and show up a few minutes early. Here’s some possible questions:
