Lowe's is not concerned treating employees with respect, it's not what you know but who you know if you want to advance.

    I have been working at Lowe's

    Pros

    After working at 3 stores in 5 years i came to love the company. They have great benifits to full and part time employees. I was able to take time off whenever i wanted and employees would help out if you needed time off at the last minute. Most stores had great management and was very fair.

    Cons

    Lowes is a company of store by store management. They have a very strict policy driven work enviroment. I opened two stores and bot started out following those polices. Once the store got "comfortable" and managers found there favorite employees that's when things start to fall apart. Lowes is a company of brown nosing to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites. Give the employees who want to be there a chance and not just hang out with the "cool ones". I used to be one of the people that would bend over backwards for my job but now i am just there for the paycheck and work just enough to stay.

    I worked at Lowe's

    Pros

    Enjoyed the work although it was physically demanding. Most of my co-workers were friendly and my HR Manager was very good.

    Cons

    I had a DM, MOD and some other manager all telling me to do different things at the same time. I kept thinking, how about you come out of your office and do it yourself, I am busy with customers. Also, the schedule was awful. I worked ten days on and 4 days off. They scheduled me all evening shift for the whole 10 days, 11:00-10:30. I didn't see my daughter for 10 days straight. It really made me mad too, b/c they scheduled three guys on mornings, all whom had no children, and me by myself at night.
    The other problem was that I have a 4 year degree in Pre-Architecture, and many years work experience, but was treated like a lackey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to realize how valuable the employees are and learn to treat them with respect. I think even lazy employees would preform better if they felt their work was apprieciated.
