Lowe's is the best retail environment that I have ever worked in and feels like a big family.

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

Pros

Competitive wages (even starting out wages are a few dollars above minimum wage), friendly work environment, good benefits/rewards, fair amount of hours if you have an open scheduling, learn skills as you go and good on the job training.

Cons

Lost revenue "sales goals" affect part time workers hours (for example: we did not make sales goals for Black Friday (which were increased even though the previous year they were not made) and all part time workers lost 5 to 10 hours 2 weeks later), long shifts (6 hours or more) are very strenuous for weekday sales associates, upper management spends little time explaining job expectations, can be monotonous during low customer turn outs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make your goals more clear upon hire (for your customer service employees) and don't tack on odd jobs or tasking jobs if they are to be working with the customer.

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

    Pros

    Advance on merit over tenure
    Market competitive salary
    Fun fast paced environment, good hardworking coworkers

    Cons

    Bonus % readjusted in 2012 made more difficult to achieve
    Out of store manager only sees what company wants him to see
    In house promotions based on what you are thought of instead of what you bring to the table

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You took a step in listening based on an outside consultant keep on listening to the stores. If you want a true view of the stores don't announce the visit where the market manager tells stores to get it right. Just show up!
