Current Employee - Appliance Sales Specialist in Nashville, TN

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

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    the best part of working for the lowes store that i do is the people i work with. The associates i work with are awesome very friendly and helpful

    Cons

    management team are two faced they preach the policies to you but dont follow them there selves. No one is treated fairly unless your a suck up. They make you go part time if you decide to change your availability which means a if you decide as a full time employee do go back to school you will not be eligible for the tuition rembursement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    follow your own rules get off your pedestal because some of your employees are better managers than youll ever be
