    Pros

    Good exercise
    Learn about plants
    Co-workers tend to be nice

    Cons

    Lowes is a very negative environment to work in...maybe it's all retail, but you have to have broad shoulders to just take pride in what you're doing and realize the management doesn't understand your job, nor are they going to compliment you in any way...at least not the one I work at! They'll just find fault and you have to find it in yourself to let it roll off.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice. Compliment when compliments are deserved.
    Gardenvision management is awesome!!! It's the stores they service that are likely hit and miss as far as any shred of compassion.

    Pros

    Great company! Decent pay, make your own schedule for the most part!

    Cons

    The store thinks you're their employee, not a contractor. They think they are your boss.

    Advice to Management

    When I worked for gardenvision, management was stretched a little thin or spent too much time in one store and not others.

    Pros

    Working outside, minimal supervision. It's nice dealing with plants in the sunshine. Bad when it's raining.

    Cons

    Early hours. Bad weather can make the work unpleasant.

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, with most weekends off. The Lowe's associates are friendly, at least most of them. You get to work outside.

    Cons

    You have to deal with extreme temperatures. Some of Lowe's management wants you to do things that you're not allowed to.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to monitor the supervisors and make sure that they are doing what they are supposed to be doing, also. Some of them yell at you, lie to your face, and have their favorites. Rules should apply to everyone, not to certain individuals.

    Pros

    It was a great job.I enjoyed working outside and the limited supervision was nice.

    Cons

    Pay is decent if you are a retiree.hours cut back to much in winter and they don't have overtime in the spring. Lots of turn over and not much room to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Train the young guns better with time management and priorities.

    Pros

    You get a lot of "free" time in terms of the work that needs to be done.
    You get most of your weekends and most major holidays off.
    Flexible work hours and convenience.

    Cons

    Underpaid for most of what you have to deal with.
    No clear authority over what store wants and your company wants
    Needs a better training platform for mid level mgt. Often times focuses majority of training on merchandiser level.
