    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!

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    *Great pay compared to like businesses *Rotating off days for full timers *Excellent Job security *Bonus opportunities for meeting certain goals

    Cons

    *Bonuses are getting harder and harder to get for stores that don't have the sales of other stores *I takes an act of god to terminate lackluster employees. You literally have to push the safe out the door to get fired. *Expected to make a lot of things happen with just a few people. Our sales floor is almost naked and our cashiers availability is horrendous. Lots of favoritism and sliding people into promotion spots instead of holding real interviews, not courtesy interviews.

    Advice to Management

    Get people with better availabilities which would ease us schedule writing and sales floor woes. Stop having forecasted hours for the week so low. Because one store can make it work does not mean that every store can. Give fair interviews and give the guys that have been around a while a fair shot first. Bonuses are getting unrealistic for stores with no people on the floor. Lower the requirements for SSEI!
