Former Employee - Part Time Cashier  in  Port Arthur, TX
Former Employee - Part Time Cashier in Port Arthur, TX

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

Pros

Good experience to learn about home improvement

Discounts on products

Flexible work schedule

1 hour lunches and (2) 15 min breaks for 9 hour days

Cons

Rude customers

Not enough pay for the amount of work. I knew more about the system that the head cashiers.

Exposed to the elements at the front registers due to doors opening constantly so in the winter you will be cold and the summer you will be hot

Older, more disabled workers were pushed out and discouraged from working there due to management wanting all cashiers to be able to walk from the register to the front of the lanes between customers

Cashier that close at night get bathroom duty

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The older employees that were pushed out actually worked harder, and were more loyal than the younger ones that they were replaced with. I have seen a woman who needed a stool to sit on at the register outperfom a young girl in high school. Another lady who needed the support of a basket to walk around picked up trash around the store and stocked without complaint, but a younger girl complained about cleaning her own register. Ridiculous!

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good management. Good overall place to work.

    Cons

    Pay structure revised so that new hires come in, with no experience, making more than employees at the same job level who have been there several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update pay scale for current workers so they are in line with the pay scale for new hires.
