Pros

the management was always able to accommodate any situation for you to be able to work or earn enough hours. they never ask more than your capable of.

Cons

most employees who do the bare minimum are not held accountable for their slacking and sadly the better employees have to pick up the slack.

Advice to Management

hold everyone to the same standard; management and down.

    Pros

    Rotating schedule. Fast paced. Challenging.

    Cons

    Rotating schedule. The policy change of ending commissions. Lack of proper staffing.

    Advice to Management

    The staffing issue is the biggest concern. Lowe's is losing revenue by under-staffing departments. Other unintended results of the staffing policy is to create an environment where the employees are stretched to the point that mistakes are made and the best employees leave.

    Pros

    a few nice people to work with

    Cons

    You are not treated like a human being here. Even when you are making sales, you are told how much you suck and how heads are gonna roll. You have to do the work of at least 3 people at all times. They have people over 60 years old doing extremely strenuous work while the kids hide. All they ever do is take things away - nothing ever gets better here. I have heard not all Lowe's are like this - I just would not recommend this one, Store Manager is a tyrant. All people dream of is when they can quit.

    Advice to Management

    When you have employee surveys, don't let the Store Manager look over your shoulder the whole time - you will never get any honest answers. (But maybe you don't want that.)

    The west des moines store was such a miserable place to work that it really makes me appreciate my new job now.

    I don't miss this place at all.
