With hard work it is possible to advance quickly

Sales Specialist (Current Employee)
Rosenberg, TX

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

ProsIt has great environment to move up throughout company. Has a great retirement plan and allows you to customize options within the plans. Management is open to new ideas and plans that would move forward the companys business plan.

ConsHave to be on the look out for some employees that try to gain their own goals at expense of others. The health coverage is not the best with deductibles and co-pays.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep an ongoing open door communication with employees to address concerns and share ideas to assist in the improvement of the company

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Easy job but management does not know how to manage.

Customer Service Associate I (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Lowe's part-time for more than a year

ProsEasy work, flexible hours, and ever changing environment.

ConsManagement can't lead, some policies/procedures are archaic, and bad pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. When they say that something is going to be a bad idea in their department find out why because the employees working each department know what the customers want in that department.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Overnight Stocker

Overnight Stocker (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Lowe's part-time for more than a year

ProsThe job is very straightforward. Come to work, put up merchandise manually, or with power equipment, then go home.

ConsAll holidays are black out days, so if its not one of your off nights, you're definitely working. Also, I came to Lowe's because they ofder tuition reimbursement...but quickly realized that they try to keep employees at part time status as long as possible. Therefore, I was never eligible for tuition reimbursement. There are employees that work full time hours (and more), but have been at part time status for over three years!

Also, getting a new position within my store is all about who you know, there's too much gossip

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to manage, and stop moving managers around to positions that will make them look bad. Just fire them, stop settin people up so they can 'hang themselves'.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

If you like Customer Service this is the place to work

Head Cashier (Former Employee)
Missouri City, TX

I worked at Lowe's full-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible Hours. Friendly coworkers. Fun environment. Reasonable pay. Great benefits. Great retail experience. You get to learn a lot about home improvement products and services.

ConsConstant management turnover. Seems like some of the lower positioned employees last longer than some managers. Micromanagement. Lack of coverage due to turnover. Long hours. Gets busy on the weekends.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce your turnover rate by hiring at a higher standard. Operational processes would be much smoother if you retained employees.

CSA

CSA I (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

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

ProsYou work with a lot of interesting people, and meet a lot of different customers.

ConsStore tends to show favoritism and only promotes the same individuals instead of promoting people within.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote people who are proven to do a job from within. Hiring people from outside the company to do a job over current employees who have to train them is a slap in the face.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
