I worked at Lowe's full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

For the position I had, I was salary+commission, so the money you made depended on how much you wanted to work for it. It is considerably more independent than other sales jobs, as you are not in the store very often.

Cons

Lowes computer system is based in MS DOS, which most of their store employees aren't even old enough to remember. Not very user friendly. They have been saying they will replace the computer system for about 2 years, but have yet to do so. Their is also a lack of decisiveness from corporate. They roll out programs that they don't see through to the end. Most stores run things as they see fit, which gives customers the impression of lack of consistency,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There isn't anything I can think of to change with management, They were a great bunch of people to work for.

  2. It's just like any other retail job, but I stay mainly for the pay. The base pay is a lot higher than most retail jobs.

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay, flexibility, associates, overall physical work

    Cons

    management, promotion, early mornings/late nights

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, at my store....When they know who they want for a position, they will do a full out interview and hire who they want anyways. I don't think its fair because some people would qualify for the position and score higher on the interview but choose who they want to anyways. I am going to report this to corporate because it is NOT supposed to be that way.
