a good company for retail

Installed Sales Coordinator (Current Employee)
Riverside, CA

I have been working at Lowe's part-time for less than a year

Pros401k match you up to 6% then a percentage after. The management team at my store is great .... tons of stores = more advancement opportunities .. we get small bonuses if we make our sales and service quotas .. benefits and stock purchase

Conspay raise per year is very low!!.. not sure if I will make it a career I am interested in HR but the HR turn over rate is very high at every store I have been to kind of scares me from taking that path ... also operating system is so old! I understand it would be extremely difficult and expensive to change but at some point I believe it needs to be done

Advice to Senior Managementi enjoy my management team at my store

Excellent company, great pay compared to other retailers.

Customer Service Associate-Appliances (Former Employee)
Columbia, MO

I worked at Lowe's part-time for more than a year

ProsLowe's provided great high level training especially in the appliance department.
Lowe's provided great compensation for the work that you did no matter what department you were in.

ConsThe biggest con was that they took away spiffs when selling appliances which added another 50% of income to every paycheck.
When it comes down to it, Lowe's is retail and retail has its ups and downs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Lowe's full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood benefits, working environment. They care about their employees. Flexible schedules

ConsYou must request time off a month in advance, then you are not guaranteed to get it. Very hard to get a transfer to another store. There used to be a time when you filled out a form and turned it in for a transfer, now you have to apply for positions & interview just like the general public.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake it easier for transfers to another store. Bring back the spiffs. Once you took those away, a lot of attitudes changed.
