Run as fast as you can. Rip up the app and don't answer if they call you back. Used to be a decent store, then Lowes started sending the under performers from stores like Colerain and Norwood to this store, and their demoted corporate goons. There are better jobs out there with more professional atmospheres management and corporate that has more respect for their employees. The management from head cashiers on up are a joke. I've seen grade schoolers with more maturity, and if you're lucky, the very best that places like Linn St. and Covington have to offer. Corporate has absolutely no regard for employees or anything else but it's bottom line. You are LESS than a number to them. You are a burden that corporate has to pay to work for them because we all know they definitely don't want to do the heavy lifting, work the awful schedules (and I mean the schedules are some of the worst I've seen, or deal with the customers. And for all of your hard work you'll be rewarded with waiting on customers from anywhere from 3-5 departments on your own (heavy lifting) the only cashier on shift during the busiest times of the day, work 7 days a week, 8 hour days (really nine cause you have to take a lunch) if you're full time. Rip that app up and run like shell. Don't look back.

Unless you just need some extra money dont waist your time...
Always has been poorly managed and it shows, just ask employees before you commit, the management answers to no one and the real workers are step on and over regularly.
The will shortly outsource nearly all the jobs so the can keep the money in there pockets. The insurance pays for any loss so dont be fooled by their lies...
Dont believe me,... take the job and find out the hard way....lol

Keep in mind that this is a garbage throw away job. If you need extra money I get it. During the hiring process they will tell you what you want to hear but always remember that with the scheduling and the drama this job will make you literally physically ill.

They only want people to work. Do not think on your own and do not offer suggestions even if they have worked in a previous business you worked at. All show and no go. Bad management, that is why they get kicked by home depot every year.

Do your best job possible if you are hired and if they come in to "let you go", know it wasn't your fault; just a business decision being made to help the bottom line.

Interviews are not based on skills or merit. Interviews are generic questions that largely do not cover the specific position you are applying for, but rather a blanket personality and employment assessment that the interviewing manager summarizes with a numerical score (which is largely subjective).

When answering, provide a statement summarizing your experience, followed by a more detailed answer that describes the situation you initially referenced, and then close by summarizing the results of the interaction. Applying these three steps to every answer is a guarantee to secure a better score.
