Pros

Great opportunity for training and advancement if you are willing to move. Policy and procedure is followed strictly which makes it easy to know what to expect in situations.

Cons

In order to be promoted you must be able to transfer anywhere in the country. There is very little consideration given to where you would like to live.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more corporate office involvement in new markets such as the west coast. Make more of an effort to balance work life for management.

    Pros

    While I cannot speak for the rest of the store, working in Appliances as a Sales Specialist is the best job in the store. Unlimited earning potential.

    Cons

    Of course Lowe's being classified as Retail, you are required to work an odd schedule. Also often times, you'll will get very little respect from Zone Managers and other Sales Specialists throughout the store because of the money you make (Personal Experience).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have to say hire more CSA's (Customer Service Associates). As a Sales Specialist you are required and expected to sell. On a busy day, you will spend a lot of the time picking your own appliances for customers due to not having enough help.

    Pros

    Although this will vary from store to store, Store Manager to Store Manager; Lowe's knows how to take care of their employees. They genuinely seem to care and they give the employees the voice to do what needs to be done. Their matching of the 401k is very good and base pay is better than anything in my area. This coupled with the commission and spiffs, makes this job hard to turn down.

    Cons

    The support of upper management would be my biggest gripe of the job. If you, as an associate, are trying to uphold the values/policies of the company to an irate customer, then they ask for a manager and that manager loses their spine and crumbles under the customers request; it gets very, very frustrating. Also, their inability to discipline employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees the same, adhere to the policies placed forth by Corporate, support employees when they make the correct decision, and properly reprimand emplyoees who aren't doing their jobs.
