    Some nice people to work with, but management expects too much and doesn't offer much support.

    I worked at Lowe's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some really cool coworkers, better starting pay than most retail, not open too late and a lot "moral building" type events like free food and holiday themed clothing contests. There are some old-timers there that really treat each other like family and will have your back if you show up and prove yourself (unfornunately they are not high up in management). Even Monday thru Friday people had to rearrange their work week and show up on Holiday Weekends! A huge cause of stress and chaos.

    Cons

    WAAYY out of date systems. Managers are too scared of corporate to try to make commen-sense changes that employees are begging for. Also too scared of customers to stand up to the ones are trying to rip them off, and no backbone to fire people who are hurting the store. Stepping up at any point just puts a target on your back that says "use and abuse me cause I'm the only responsible one here" They do not set expectations or priorities well and are often unrealistic about how much a person can accomplish. Rewards and write-ups were both unpredictable. Once you basic training is done, you are basically responsible to find time to continue educating yourself. Not a practical approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a backbone! You run the store, not corporate. Learn who your good people really are and stop letting them burnout! Ever wonder why so many of your employees have health problems?
