Great Place to Work

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
Aurora, CO

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

ProsIt is safe to say that everyone wants to be happy where they work and enjoy what they do. When it comes to retail work, Lowes Home Improvement is the best “big box hardware store” to work for, hands down. Now Lowes, the place where you never stop improving together, has proven day in and day out to its employees that this is not just a marketing scheme, but it is in fact the way that Lowes runs its business. As an employer, Lowes outshines its hardware competitors in many ways. Lowes is a great place to work because has a plethora of growth opportunities for its employees to take advantage of. Lowes also offers great benefits to part-time and fulltime employees, and to top it all off the positive culture that is customer and community based makes it a fun and friendly environment to work in each and every day.
        Opportunity for employment at Lowes seems to be endless. From gardening and woodworking, to painting and interior design, Lowes offers an array of positions that focus on all different types of home improvement specialties. On top of being able to entertain employees with working in their different interests, Lowes offers positions to anyone from a recent high school graduate, to college students, to college graduates, to retired veterans. The great thing about Lowes is there are stores nationwide. The huge selection of stores to work at and the many opportunities they all have to offer for employment make it possible for employees to move around and have many opportunities to promote.
        When it comes down to it, Lowes is a great place to work. Between the endless opportunities in career advancement, to great health and retirement benefits, to a positive and progressive culture, Lowes truly has it all.

ConsSome of the challenges working in retail include an ever-changing work schedule, working on most holidays, and balancing your schedule with family time. This is a struggle that is faced at almost all retail stores and is certainly not unique to Lowe's.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Best big box retail company I've found.

Cabinet Sales Specialist (Current Employee)

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

ProsExtremely good pay
Management in my store is excellent
Great team to work with

ConsThe company transfer process is identical to the hiring process, if you want to move to a new position within your store, or to another store, you have to go through the interview process all over again. They do favor existing employees though.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your employees engaged in the business, it will make all the difference in the world in their performance. Give them the opportunity to have a sense of ownership of the business, let them know why the decisions that are made are made.

Great place to work

Unload Associate (Current Employee)
Woodhaven, MI

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

ProsThe pay is above average, they pay you by how much experience you have. If your just starting out with no experience the pay is still pretty good. The culture is really nice, out going, and they help you excel and succeed.

ConsSome bad apples in the bunch make it a bit difficult to work with, but nothing major.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour approach towards hourly employees is working but always stay vigilant to get better.
