My bills are always paid on time. All this has been great advice, but the problem is how do you stand out and a crowd and get noticed? I really do need to make more connections. Something to help open the door , so I can at least get an interview.

Do you have any contacts in the muslim community?
Say friends in Afghanistan, Iran, or Somalia?
They could probably get you in.

Lowes is the store in EJ that called their Christmas trees, "Holiday" trees.

Lowes would rather piss off all their Christian customers, the people who actually BUY Christmas trees, to avoid offending all their muslim customers who DON'T buy Christmas trees.

Im pretty sure the tree isnt the important part of Christmas. Who cares what they name it. We shouldnt judge them either

If Lowes can judge Turniptown's job application,
then I can judge their bias in favor of muslims.

And just what is your point? Reality was spot on. ONLY Christians buy Christmas trees. Jews don't buy Christmas trees, they buy Menorahs. They aren't called candles, they are menorahs. Muslims don't buy Christmas trees or Holiday trees or pine cones. They don't celebrate Christmas. the ONLY people you are offending by calling them "Holiday" trees instead of Christmas trees are Christians!

I don't buy Holiday trees either!!! Jewish people respect Christmas trees. Christians respect Menorahs. Muslims respect nothing. And Lowe's sold out.

Guys thanks for the inputs, but it still doesn't answer my original question. How do you get through the door for a set down interview? In this modern world you get turned down just by what you fill out on a computer screen. So it really doesn't matter if I have a hair cut, or sit up proper, or kiss their back side.

I don't know, Turnip. Follow up, maybe?
The people that follow up consistently usually keep the attention on them.

I don't know how this online application process works.
But the follow up works for me.

Have you tried to send a follow-up email through the contact site, or maybe an actual letter with a copy of your resume?
sent by a person with a Christmas tree

Son I realize its a new day and age and a different era than when I was younger, But I am puzzled as to why you would have to ask these things on a forum, My answer to your question is be persistant, Dont give up if its something you really want.

I only asked this question about Lowe's on here hoping someone might have actually had dealings with them directly. Like I said earlier, this isn't my first choice for a job. I am looking other places, but I am really curious about the way they go about hiring. If I am making a mistake in the process then I can learn from it, and hopefully not repeat it else where. Again thanks to all that responded

I once heard a plant manager say that he only hired people that he thought could barely do the job. He said they didn't get bored and leave after a few months. He said that those who are over-qualified won't stay long.
