    Pros

    All they are missing is a roller coaster, and they could be considered a full-fledged theme park.

    Cons

    Incompetent employees and staff that lack true knowledge about what a guest in their store is really trying to accomplish by coming here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pumping all of your money into your Disney-esque remodels and advertising, and try to focus on things at a store by store level. (not just clemmons)

    be fair and honest and promote those who deserve it not just the ones you like and give hours as equally as possible and not on a "like you" basis...

    Pros

    They are very open to working around schedules, which is especially helpful for college students. Everyone, including the general manager are also very nice, and respectful in how they treat others.

    Cons

    Some don't seem to really care about their jobs. There isn't much accountability when something isn't done properly, which is annoying for someone who takes pride in their job regardless of what it is.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, it's a family dynamic. Even in other departments, everyone loves to help everyone else. Great job advancement opportunities as well.

    Cons

    The work load can be a little heavy at times. You're expected to know not only your department, but those surrounding you as well.

    Pros

    An innovative and growing company with plenty of opportunities for career growth and personal experience to be learned. Over one hundred store locations in North Carolina with career opportunities in each location . Family owned and operated in North Carolina.

    Progressive and fast paced retail. Will need to work on some holiday's and most weekends.

    Pros

    Its a job. The new president is from Disney.

    Cons

    Lowes is trying to run the company like Disney literally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to realize this is a grocery store and not Disney.
