Great stores. Not so great HQ.

Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Kansas City, MO

I have been working at Lowe's full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Salary, benefits, 401k and stock program, bonus up to 30% + extra award bonuses possible.

Cons

Crazy rotation for schedule needs more consistency, huge disconnect between HQ and the stores. They spend who knows how much money making plannograms, which we then have to redesign completely at the stores. The 30k/year process worker at HQ makes up new programs with no knowledge of how it would actually work in stores, and then gives out orders on the company forum like they are a SVP. Something is seriously wrong with the culture there. The stores are great though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's seriously time to rein in your CSC employees a bit. A war is brewing between the stores and the CSC, fueled by connections. We're doing our part as store mgmt to calm our employees down. Now its your turn.

    Pros

    Met some wonderful people, love the customers.

    Cons

    Management shows partiality to young workers and offers no advancement opportunities to older workers.

    Cultivate an appreciation for older workers and you will be repaid with loyalty and great job performance.

    Pros

    Employee interaction, customer relations, sharing your experience with other employees

    Cons

    Management inconsistency, not being held accountable. HR Mgr. will ignore experience and length of time with company to give the people she likes jobs. Employees have said the HR Mgr. posted jobs and prematurely promised jobs to people she likes or YES people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees equally. HR and other managers need to be rotated or be reviewed by employees to make them aware that they will be held accountable
