I worked at Lowe's full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The pay is good and there are a lot of different positions available. Just like all companies every store is going to give you a different experience.

Cons

It's hard to get promoted past a department manager. There is a lot of disconnect between the associates and upper management. The customers that shop at Lowe's can be out of control sometimes and managers will allow them to treat you poorly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to roll out programs that are not well thought out or are too complicated, stores will not follow them and they will be dropped in a few months. Don't change policies because you have an angry customer because then all customers know you are just a bunch of push overs that will give them a free kitchen if they yell loud enough. Give lower level associates a chance to show their skills because most of them could do a better job than the ASMs who got promoted when it was a lot easier to get promoted in the company, those ASMs are usually lazy and don't care about furthering their education for the company.

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They really care about their employees.
    Excellent co-workers!
    Management is easy to work with!

    Cons

    MUST have open availability for a full-time position.
    MUST work a "rotating schedule', there is not an option for either just day or night shifts only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly consider a small commission on departments who do install, or sell large items. (i.e.: Appliances, Flooring, Mill-work, Inside lawn and garden.
    Consider the option of full time day-time or night-time shifts.
