Pros

Benefits offered are very good. Employee are eligible for bonuses every quarter and managment get a yearly bonuse if numbers are met.

Cons

Low pay and annual increases are very disappointing. Lowe's does not pay for experience upon your initial job offer and managers tend to low ball higher qualified applicants.

    Retail hours with retail pay.
    Many younger employees decide that retail is not right for them, so it can occasionally be difficult to keep enough people on the floor during summer hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give individual stores more freedom for displays and events.

    Pros

    Pros - Starting salary very generous.
    Friendly coworkers.
    Nice, big breakroom
    Cookout every 60 days without an accident
    Nice raise at 90 days and 1 year.
    10% employee discount

    Cons

    Chronic understaffing
    No appreciation from management
    Store manager incompetent, 40% approval rating
    haphazard, exhausting scheduling
    no help, ever
    Military discounts for ungrateful, demanding old jackasses every 2 minutes
    Homeowners who don't know their butt from a hole in the ground
    Abuse by hateful, classless customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop giving the military discount except on Memorial day and Veterans day (like Home Depot does)
    You're giving too much money away
    Schedule at least one person per department for every shift. You are losing so much money by pissed off customers leaving because there is no one to help them.
