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

Pros

Professional associates, management support, growth opportunities

Cons

Schedule and the lack of a windows based management system at register and specialists level

Advice to ManagementAdvice

consider using CPM (Critical Path Method) for scheduling store associate work schedules. Pursue commercial contractor accounts at the store level.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the opportunity as a store manager to interact with my associates and set the example for great customer service on the sales floor. The corporate scheduling allowed for a very good work/life balance. It allowed me to plan personal events ahead of time.

    Cons

    Very disappointing when it came to positive recognition from immediate supervisor and above. Area Support staff weren't trustworthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to recognize your associates and their efforts, don't always focus on the negative. This behavior destroys moral. Practice the Servant Leadership we were trained to use.

    Pros

    Enjoy the technology advancements that Lowe's is trying to make for customers and associates.

    Cons

    The technology advancements aren't happening fast enough for associates and their customers. There seems to be a lag in how fast they roll out technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring commission back to the sales floor!
