I have been working at Lowe's part-time (more than an year)

Pros

It's great if you can get a manager to like you, if so, you're pretty well covered. Most of these types of people do very little at work except run from dept to dept talking to their buddies. If you can fit in with the "cool" crowd, it's easy not to do much in the way of real work.

Cons

See above. As well, don't tell people they can expect 30-40 scheduled hours a week on your job website. I was one of the people the really "liked" and saw my hours and other employees drop to 14 a week during the "slow" periods. Not enough to live on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get new blood in there, the store manager is milking the system. Department manager (tools) is far to cozy with the store manager. Stop going to the Jox (bar) with each other - all managers & employees. Fraternization among upper management and lower positions is rampant.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Nice people for the most part, Lowes seems to care a lot about there employees.

    Cons

    Some managers seem to be on a power trip. A lot of gossip goes on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little more. Give objectives that are practical. Make every one feel they have a chance to move up to your level or higher.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are excellent benefits....medical, dental, vision, 401K, stock options.

    Cons

    Schedule is all over the board. Hard to have a life with a schedule that is constantly changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back commission to the sales specialists. It makes us happier to be rewarded for outstanding performance and makes us thrive.
