    Pros

    Very nice people to work with . and supportive, helpful, willing to assist when needed. Good backup and communication.

    Cons

    Hours / Schedule -- Got the worst schedule being the last one hired... 1-10:00 PM... Sat/Sun.. Closed...
    Put me back in the lumber area where it VERY SLOW/////////// and VERY LITTLE TO DO ///////// .
    Culture seems to be a 'robotic-mechanical routing'... You are a body doing a function.. and show up and do the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to suggestions by the people who are low level employees...
    Treat employees with the same level of respect that you would expect from your superiors... some ASM's don't seem to grasp that the lower level employees are the backbone of what keeps customers coming back and the operations moving forward.. Leadership and mode of structure should be better chartered by management.. Metrics and numbers .. sales volume is significant but not EVERYTHING........

    Pros

    Provided financial assistant for college. Worked around my school schedule. Great pay for a college student. Great opportunity to stay in shape.

    Cons

    Did not really have anything bad happen, nothing that isn't typical for a retail company. Some management didn't care.

    Pros

    It's a great place to work if you know what you are doing. Superior growth opportunities, lots of room for advancement. If you are hard working and humble, you will move up PRETTY FAST in pay and in position. You can come in seasonal and become part of Management team in less than 12 months. . Excellent benefits, Awesome staffs and Management is o.k

    Cons

    You are on your feet for your entire shift except break time. The work is hard, it's a good place to work and loose weight because walking and heavy lifting is involved, but you are well rewarded depending on your position. You only have one weekend off per month if you are full time. Management works under pressure, we loose management more than we loose regular employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management should spread out weekend shift to every other weekend instead one weekend a month. And should go easy on the Department Management staff. They work them a little too hard.

    I worked at Lowe's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My manager stood up for me with a bad customer, but not all of them will do this.

    Cons

    Don't care about the employee, under paid! Will take back anything even if customer clearly used the item and even didn't have a receipt. The company will do anything for a sale! Will give the associate discount to anyone who grips enough, yet I have to work 40 hours a weeks for mine... Hmm! Hours sucked!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay fairly, stop allowing customers to abuse the return policy... Oh an employee discount should be just that not every customer that walks in the door. I don't get a
    Discount just I walked into Walmart...

    Pros

    pays very well, bonus structure for all employees, real people for the most part, wonderful middle management for the most part

    Cons

    its a very political employer, its all about who you know that will promote you..not about your experience! senior managers are so fake to you and its obvious they dont care..not just in 1 store but in more than 50% of the stores over my past 10 plus years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your people how they deserve to be treated! be consistent amongst your staff!
