Peers would "joke," you'd be better being an external applicant for these store management positions.

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

Pros

Flexible working hours, multiple locations and job categories

Cons

Promotion opportunities limited for internal applicants. College graduates who were already employed were given little to no consideration for promotion opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Worked in a college town with a flood of young, motivated graduates. Nonexistent pipeline from that talent pool. Opportunities were stifled by existing management who had peaked developmentally. Lot of peers left for other companies because there were little opportunities for internal advancement and seemingly no desire to recruit college graduates who were employed already by company into leadership positions.

    Pros

    Employee Discounts, decent ins,

    Cons

    Pay is nothing to write home about. And it is not uncommon for them to hire people on, then coldheartedly slash their hrs to unlivable. e.g. 10 hrs a week. I saw this happen to quite a few, right before x-mas last yr (2013) This was unexpected, an on short notice. It was really sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring humanity back to the corporate entity, Lowes has become. On more than a few occasions, I was somewhat amused, that customers were even making comments about it. None seemed positive.
