    Pros

    Depending on the store you will work with some amazing people. The pay is reasonable if you are uneducated or just starting out. You get 2 weeks of vacation after 6 months, 3 weeks after 5 years. Paid holiday time. Promotions can come easy and often.

    Cons

    The schedule can be very random if you are not full time. Full time employees only have 1 weekend off a month. Healthcare is offered, but has terrible coverage. With a downturn in store expansion it has decreased how fast people are being promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Think of your employees more, it is extremely discouraging when the reasoning behind every decision is for the stock holders.

    It all depends on what store you're in.

    Pros

    Good coworkers, Employee relief fund, Lowe's Heros

    Cons

    Matrix scheduling system is full of flaws lots of turn and burns, stores are understaffed, Employees are not compensated fairly for going above and beyond as far as learning surrounding departments, If you are a woman don't expect to make as much money as the men, management is a "good ol' boys" club. Lots of lazy associates. But than that's a reflection of the management.

    Advice to Management

    Set a better example of what hard work is for your employees and follow policy and procedure. Put the right people in the right places based on there work ethic , experience and willingness to learn and train others, not just for b.s.ing their way through an interview. Also Pay the employees what they are worth.
