I worked at Lowe's full-time
I got to know my fellow employees like a family over the years. The pay was very fair, based on experience usually, benefits were great, customer experience and product knowledge and training were very valuable. Also offers tuition reimbursement for full-time employees (but they complain when you need to schedule around your classes).
I constantly felt like managers didn't care about the things you did do right or well, but they were quick to jump on you about things that weren't up to par. Never trust a manager on a personal level as they will most certainly stab you in the back. The schedule was on a rotation, but don't expect it to stay on a rotation or plan your life around it as you will most certainly get screwed out of several days and weekends off. You literally cannot plan your life around this rotation. It is a joke. A 7 day stretch on a roller coaster schedule? More like write me a prescription for anti-anxiety meds. I have never been more stressed working somewhere. They would often schedule people to clopen-> close until 11pm then expect to be back in at 6am the next morning. Hardly possible. Managers never pay attention to fairness when scheduling and do not care about your complaints. CONSTANT under-staffing is a massive issue. One sales floor employee is expected to do the work of three employees.
Advice to Management
Don't screw your employees with unfair scheduling. Let them know you actually care and appreciate them and pay attention to their achievements instead of constantly hounding them on things they didn't do. It may be retail, but it's not slavery. Value your seasoned and senior employees. They are the reason a lot of customers come back for positive sales experiences. Weeding out the higher paid, more experienced and knowledgeable employees isn't the answer when you are wanting to make more money in the long run. Lowe's preaches many values and act like they care but demonstrate they clearly do not with the mistreatment and lack of care of their employees.
