    Pros

    I started as a Specialist and in time became an ASM (assist store mgr.) Promotes from within. Encourages employees to progress upward. Supportive management

    Cons

    When you get into the upper management levels, it is hard for single mothers since you have to have open availability and it can be very stressful to meet that requirement. I stepped down for this reason.

    Advice to Management

    I would be nice to have an onsite daycare like many of the more modern companies have.

    Pros

    Excellent customer service culture, clean orderly stores.

    Cons

    Not a lot of experience in some professional areas like lumber and paint. People will help, readily, but they may not have the depth of knowledge about certain products.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of your people and make them experts in the areas they WANT to be in instead of switching them around from department to department every month.

    Pros

    It's a good job if you are a people person and have some common sense and handy man skills.

    Cons

    sometimes retail customers are non-human. training seems to be a bit lacking

    Advice to Management

    focus on the positive instead of highlighting negatives. Take care of the employees and they will take care of your business. Treat employees as cattle and watch as business spirals down. Happy employees equal happy customers and happy customers keep coming back.

    Pros

    Best reasons to work at Lowe's are the benefits you get as a full-time associate!

    Down sides are horrible scheduling, managers not caring about you, and the pay isn't too good!

    Show your employees that you care about them and not just the sales!
