What are the best questions to ask during an interview?
I have an Interview for a Lowe's company that I'm very interested in. P/T Cashier. #interview #lowes #advice #tips
A good first question is: Why is this position open? It's an honest question and one you need answered. If the position is open because of growth, that's great. If the position is open because they had to let someone go, you need to know that too - not that an organization would always be forthcoming and may also be bound to certain confidentiality rules.
A good second question would be: What can you tell me about the culture here? You will want to know if it's a culture in which everyone pitches in and helps each other during a crisis or if you would be on your own when you needed help. A good third question would be: Can you tell me about a typical day? They may answer that each day is different. Some days may be slower than others and so on. The thing is, you have THOUGHT about this interview and you have prepared by writing down some questions. Another tip for you would be to thoroughly acquaint yourself with the organization's website. You can draw questions from there. If there was a merger recently, or something else newsworthy, you can ask about it. Show the interviewer you looked at their website. You can even say something like "I was impressed with the neatness of your website as well as how informative I found it." I hope these things have helped you. Good luck.
I would ask the question: What work characteristics are most important for me to be successful here at this Lowe's location? Lowe's is big box #retail so while the products and job descriptions are very similar, how the team gets the job may be very different. Whatever the answer (teamwork, hard work, flexibility, etc.) be prepared to share examples of that in your past experience. Hope that's helpful and let us know how it goes! Good luck!!
How much are you starting off at
It’s very important to know how the company is treating their employees and not just the pay and benefits.
How long has the Company been around? What would a typical day be like for me? Am I required to work week-ends and some Holidays? To name a few...
What the pay is so you dont waste anyone's time if it's below what your looking for.
I always thought if I asked to many questions I would not take the job and be unemployed my whole life.....I truly believe there is no good company except yourself that you would enjoy working for.
Get in the Black Market = Cash Own business cash only
The position is open because high turn over and low pay.
My favorite question to ask in an interview (that usually works for any interview) is, "Can you take me through what an average day will look like in this position?" It's a quick and simple question to ask and your interviewer and it will easily help you figure out if you're interested in doing that job every day!
