Best big box retail company I've found.

Cabinet Sales Specialist (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lowe's full-time for less than a year

ProsExtremely good pay
Management in my store is excellent
Great team to work with

ConsThe company transfer process is identical to the hiring process, if you want to move to a new position within your store, or to another store, you have to go through the interview process all over again. They do favor existing employees though.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your employees engaged in the business, it will make all the difference in the world in their performance. Give them the opportunity to have a sense of ownership of the business, let them know why the decisions that are made are made.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour approach towards hourly employees is working but always stay vigilant to get better.
