Qualified applicants for front-line jobs are often hired in approximately two weeks. Yet all Lowe’s applicants, whether for stores, distribution centers, contact centers, or corporate roles are subject to the same hiring process.
Lowe’s particularly values candidates who are committed to customer service. Lowe’s operates in a high-volume, low-margin, brutally competitive retail environment, where customers expect both low prices and high customer service.
Yet Lowe’s also requires its employees to be reliable, careful, and trustworthy. Their stores contain hundreds of thousands of dollars of inventory, and transact large amounts of cash, both of which are subject to theft and pilfering. Stores are functioning warehouses managed by state of the art inventory and cash management systems. Store operations require alertness and intelligence, as the environment can be dangerous, involving heavy equipment, power tools, and hazardous materials (e.g., paints, chemicals, pesticides, flammables, molds, and allergens).
