    Pros

    Pay is good for part-time employees but sometimes you are working only three days a week. If you are not living with a roommate trying to survive is impossible. Lowe's is a great company to work for but this location is awful, even the customers come in on defense. Plus the technology is toooo outdated...

    Cons

    Management sucks at this location in Chamblee,Ga Unprofessional at ALL times No Diversity Unfair Practices (NO BREAKS) and (no one to relieve you when time to go home) Management watch employees not the stealing customers Old Technology, even customers get frustrated No Teamwork, including management No real training...other employees just talk about new employees rather than help train. This is because they are all used to this type of environment. No working fans in the lawn and garden, a lady actually fainted here.

    Advice to Management

    Please do something about this location----clean house is needed. Management here is lazy and puts on a major front when you come. Ask yourself, why do good employees end up leaving or fired? This work environment is awful. Lowe's as a company is great, just not the people at this location. Send in secret shoppers when least expected!

    Pros

    The schedule, benefits, and tshirts all the time weren't bad. The management and all the leadership views are full of politics. Unrealistic rules and bogus senior management.

    Cons

    The management fired A LOT of people 1-2 a week per shift for meaningless things. Everyone is scared for their jobs and not enough pay for the stress.

    Pros

    Lowe's pays more than most retailers. Once you become a specialist you will make between 13.00-19.00 per hour on average. Also as a specialist you are entitled to larger bonuses than regular full time employees.

    Cons

    It is retail so you will have to work weekends and holidays. It is very hectic and difficult to get management to help you as they are stretched thin. It always irritated me that there were many policies in place and when you would enforce them with a customer who was dissatisfied and then wanted to speak with a manager, the manager would undermined your decision almost every time and make you look foolish. Also, there will never be enough employees to cover what is needed. Every day will be horribly busy and you will frequently be overwhelmed with the amount of work you have to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Stand behind the employees more when they make decisions and don't cave to customers just because you're afraid they will write corporate. Policies are in place for a reason.
