I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I worked at this company for almost 15 years and feel overall it's a good company. It paid higher than other ones in the the area. They have an employee discount of 10%, medical and dental benefits and stock plan.

Cons

They don't pay as well as I think they should. After working there for almost 15 years I was only making $12.30 an hour. For a lot of the jobs they only want to hire people that have college degrees no matter if the person has done the job previously. Once in a particular job it's very hard to move to another one. At least that's what I found by not having a college degree.

Advice to Management

You need to be more open to interviewing and hiring people without the college degree. Experience should be taken into consideration.

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay scale for this line of work. Supportive network within the company. Managers are friendly and caring.

    Cons

    Hourly cut backs during off seasons happen without warning. The computer system is a bit outdated.

    Advice to Management

    The training process could be a bit longer and the computer systems could use an update. The card machines need to be replaced. Also each department in my opinion should be cross trained in at least two other areas to help with breaks and call ins.
