    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    If you're well rounded and work hard, you'll move up quick. You just have to be willing to change stores.

    Cons

    Training is lacking. You have to go out and get it, it's not structured enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in training everyone at every level.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth with fair pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    Hours are what's to be expected in Retail. Nights, weekends, and holidays but with a four week rotation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all management is on the same page and deliver the same answers. Consistency

    Current Employee - Department Manager Lowes

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Upper management (store-level and beyond) will recognize high performers, decent wages for those without a college education, good insurance benefits, company stock discount and 401k.

    Cons

    The quality of workers varies greatly (HR issue?), bonuses are tied to the entire team's quarterly performance and not necessarily a reflection of every individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On the store level, training could be improved, or perhaps enforced and there could be more mindful and deliberate placement of new hires throughout the stores.

    Nice company if you actually work. They will hold you responsible for what you do. I have excelled there.

    Cons

    Sometimes they aren't clear on what you are supposed to do and they will hold you accountable for things you didn't know were your responsibility.

    Pros

    Good pay. People really care about each other. Smaller shop in the distribution network, but still room to move to different jobs and advance if you have good leadership qualities.

    Cons

    As part of a larger corporation we do not always get info quickly.
