Pros

Lowe's is a great store and a friendly atmosphere in general.

Cons

Lowe's needs more people on the floor to assist customers as opposed to having too many managers that cuts into the cost to run the store. Lowe's would be a superior store if more employees would be in each zone.

Advice to Management

Communication skills could be improved to get the very best from their employees and to accent on the positive first before expanding on negatives.

  1. Company has good intentions and policies, but hires wrong people from outside to implement, PROMOTE FROM WITHIN.

    Pros

    Fast Paced, good compensation and benefits, opportunities exist for advancement, excellent training program and fun people when the team is right.

    Cons

    Company has a penchant for hiring from competitors over training inside for advancement, the majority of these outside hires fail due to lack of proper culture. Lowe's management that i worked for does not care about your life outside work only how they can take advantage of you for their benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Become in tune with what is happening at a local level from an associate level and everything related to the bottom line will improve.

  2. Ok but management above store level is very disconnected.

    Pros

    There are many different jobs fir everyone at every paygrade. Great job security and clean safe working environment. Also great diversity.

    Cons

    Regional and distric level management are very unrealistic and narrow-minded. They constantly bet against senior managers you are lucky tto get them to say more then hello.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people really listen I don't mean your store managers o mean below them most of us please our store managers so asking them for feedback ideas is stupid I've been in home improvement for 19 years and my dm walks with my store manager to discus a reset what?
