I have been working at Lowe's full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Easy job. Discount on products and special pricing on certain items.

Cons

It is retail, anyone can do this job. It is hard to stand out. Management doesn't care about employees, but rather the bottom line. Commission was cut out in February of 2012, which cut most appliance sales specialist salaries by $7,000-15,000. Unless you get into management, most companies wont give much value for your experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work in a store department for one day, without management responsibilities and it will open your eyes about what associates deal with everyday. Do not be afraid to get your hands dirty as a manager, employees will respect you much more.

    I worked at Lowe's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers were nice and the discounts were good. They are located all over Albuquerque and shouldn't be hard to find one in your area.

    Cons

    Management has issues with communication. I would often times be told two separate things from different managers. I would make sure I get it in writing before proceeding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and make sure you work on your communication.

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Good Pay, Good Hours, and Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    -Management does not recognize your commitment to the job (missed no days and was never late, even called in to see if they needed help on my days off coming in on several occasions) I was a seasonal worker but they gave the job to another person who called in several times and my manager thought she was "pretty".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Notice the hardworking employees
