    I worked at Lowe's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fun working with customers and alot of opportunities to learn different areas. 25% of people do 95% of the work

    Cons

    Way too many people who work there stay because they know they can't go elsewhere and get paid the same for the least amount of work they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what is happening, you lose good employees right and left because of refusal to see who does all the work.

    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Spring, TX
    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Spring, TX

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the people are the best part of the job. I have worked for the company for almost seven years and they have consistently been fair and have taken good care of me. They have been flexible and encouraged my education. They always look for opportunities to promote and develop people.

    Cons

    Can be very challenging and hectic. Fast paced and difficult to accomplish considerable improvements in a short time period. So much to learn and it takes a long time to become very competent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on training and development of new hires and promotions at the store level. Instate some new form of MTP.
