    Solid company with a long standing and reputable history, but does not consistently value tenure throughout the chain.

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for team players and dependable workers, as well as for great leaders to promote. Great benefit program, including health, dental, vision, 401 K, etc.
    Extensive training available for all employees, including management staff and is ongoing. It is typically completed on-line and in some cases, with class room settings. Very people oriented and customer service intensive business if you enjoy same.

    Cons

    Holiday, nights and weekend hours...which is to be expected in this industry. Some high turnover of sales floor and cashier positions, as well as senior management (not all, but some) outside of the store can treat staff demeaning or even threatening, making for a difficult work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember where you started and take care of your store teams. They make it happen and without them, none of the customers would be happy, nor could the business model succeed. Too many talented managers and employees leave or are driven out due to poor managers above them. This has and does occur even at some of the Regional staff level, while their respective corporate leadership can be naive to it. They will even run off great staff, store or even district leadership using false performance allegations. Corporate teams need to monitor field office closer and challenge turnover of tenured or other red flag scenarios. Problems are not always others....as sometimes they are the in position dysfunctional leader.

    I have been working at Lowe's

    Pros

    At my particular store, there is great camaraderie, and very inviting to new associates. Pay above average.

    Cons

    Worthless insurance that pays for nothing, for part-timers; Limited full time opportunities; Long timers seem to have a different set of rules to follow (or not follow).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with different insurance options that your employees can actually use.

    I worked at Lowe's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    $9.42 was my hourly rate. Not bad for that age.

    Cons

    It would get pretty boring sometimes if no one came into your section.

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere wonderful coworkers no stop on going training and testing for knowledge.job advancements based on hard work. awesome management. Great team work

    Cons

    Unstable hours and crazy schedules part time positions available only can not plan a normal life because you never know what your schedule is going to be like. Have to sacrifice family for a part time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more with the scheduling. Pretty sure there are some that can only work days and other nights. No need for crazy schedules. This doesnt make employees happy. Rotate weekends so employees can enjoy time off with family on a non school or work day,

    I worked at Lowe's

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement is a nice feature. The management stayed on top of things, but out of the way.

    Cons

    There really are not many cons to working there. It is a little better than a typical minimum wage job anywhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. The store workers are always friendly and helpful. That means the employee screening works.
