Pros

The money and incentives are good, but it developed into the plague that is bringing it down...

Cons

The company went from a place that cared and was family oriented into a money hungry corporation that only cared what the investors think. They forgot all the people that helped build the company into the huge corporation it is now and leave incompetent managers to run each store as they wish.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Read between the lines, the low down tells you in every issue how to treat the customer, but if it means cutting into your bottom line and losing your 40k bonus, they you really don't care. HR managers are supposed to be there for the employee, instead you work for the store manager. And probably go golfing with him.

    Pros

    Vacation and benefits package including 401k are top notch. Lowe's pays a competitve hourly wage for non selling areas of store.

    Cons

    Lowe's no longer supports compensations packages sucha as spiff and commission for its sales associates and for current associates cut there compensations anywhere from 15%-45%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    connect with your employees and for an incentive basis again for your sales staff. There is no way this company will ever achieve there hopes of LEF if they don't connect again with there employees
