    Pros

    Good management, right on top of things, good judgement, calm at the right times. Willing to be flexible with employees schedules. Good products to sell. Very good training. Excellent team of fellow employees. Most are really team players.

    Cons

    It's retail so some of the customers are really spoiled brats that push you around and eventually get their way. Like everywhere I have ever worked some of the employees are slackers who are not team oriented.

    Advice to Management

    Hold each employee accountable for their duties everyday. Audit the zone recovery lists from time to time to keep everybody on their toes.

    Pros

    If you are doing fix up projects for yourself employee discounts and clearance merchandise is a good buy

    Cons

    Lowe's Management is still top down NO input from line workers and based on a negative find something wrong management focus. When district management was coming everyone ran around cleaning up trying to avoid something for them to criticize. They always found something negative and the "Fear Based" approach was evident. EVERYTHING is controlled from Corporate HQ INCLUDING the temperature settings in the store. the good old boy system was evident in promotions and who got away with poor work yet got promoted. Employees could be fired despite great work performance.

    Advice to Management

    When you really want to manage in a style somewhere in the 20th century maybe things will dhange
