Pros

great place to work. great benefits.

Cons

corporate scheduling is horrid. scheduling could easily be changed without causing loss of profitability.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

work in retal before you head off to corporate office. most seem to be out of the realities of retail

    Good pace to work, as long as you are comfortable with customer first.

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Managment is very easy an open to talking to you about your issues, and in my experience most customers are nicer than at other jobs.
    People are actually open to listening to you and your ideas, vs them just walking in and grabbing what they want.
    The company culture is forward looking rather than grasping to an already gone past. And there is a drive to improve where things are lacking and not totally from a bussiness sense, but more from a total all encompansing sense.

    Cons

    Managers have a tendency to disapear wether there is work to be done or not. Makes it quite difficult to find help when you need help. Most employees are not fully cross trained, and don't really care to be, while I understand why the intent is to focus on your own station things run smoother when all work together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Department managers should stick to their departments, not running around to do what ever it is they do when you can't find them.
