Pros

You work with a lot of interesting people, and meet a lot of different customers.

Cons

Store tends to show favoritism and only promotes the same individuals instead of promoting people within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people who are proven to do a job from within. Hiring people from outside the company to do a job over current employees who have to train them is a slap in the face.

    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Lowe's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I had a decent experience at Lowe's over my 6 years span. I started as an hourly associate and worked my way up to Assistant Store Manager. Yes, it can be done. It doesn't take that long it you're a great employee and are determined. Nice incentives were available when I was there. ASM get 40% of their base pay as a bonus if budget is achieved, Store Managers were getting 100% of base pay... I believe since Lowe's had the mass lay offs and restructuring in 2010/2011 that those figures have changed. Pay depends on your market and the volume of store.. bigger cities usually mean bigger pay. Typical salary raises were 3%.

    Cons

    The management either makes or breaks the store and the morale. Not all Lowe's stores are managed the same style or with the same level of professionalism. Being a salaried employee means your committed 110% to the company. Poor walks by the District / Regional Mgr could mean 6 day work weeks. and Very long hours. Best to stay ahead of the curve and do it right the first time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Regional and Divisional Staff would be to treat all employees with respect. There were many times that I witnessed that level of employee disregard the hourly "lowly" associates and only care about the stores manager and his/her "numbers".
