    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

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

    Pros

    Fun people - hourly, so the job doesn't follow you home (not on call), easy work once you learn the many processes.

    Cons

    As with any retail store - when sales are down or its the slow time of the year, number of hours available is smaller so fewer people to run the store - can make for challenging days. Ultimately we are mostly hourly employees though, so there is no "thats not my job" we all must do what ever it takes to keep the store going and the customers taken care of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication it terrible - I'm a DM - the HRM or ASMs send my people home or write them up for stuff without ever even talking to me. I spent time looking for an employee I needed to complete some tasks only to find out he had been sent home - that is terrible. Over all - your DMs aren't really managing the staff like they should be. You should all spend at least 1 day a month working someone elses job so you remember, really remember, what it is like.
