    Pros

    Good work atmosphere, general sense of camraderie throughout store. Excellent chance for career advancement for motivated people.

    Cons

    Rotating schedule is tough for many people to cope with. Also, job is more physically demanding than most people think. Heavy employee turnover, but probably no worse than others in same industry. Training for job advancement is poorly executed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trying to deal with the life schedules of the employees. Working with them, instead of steadfast scheduling rules would decrease turnover drastically.

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits to full-time workers. Can advance within the company. Can transfer to another Lowes easily.

    Cons

    rotating schedule not family friendly. Part time workers cannot hold another job, no guarantee of hours but must be available anytime and for any shift. Management does not know basics of jobs. poor management team only focused on bottom line at expense of employee and customer. Use of too many part-time employees leads to poor customer service. Part-time employees treated poorly. Once part-time, little chance of being chosen for full-time work regardless of what said on hiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use to be more employee friendly. Not anymore. End of sales commissions leads to unproductive workers with no incentive to sell or give good customer service. It wasn't much for the average customer service person on the floor but it was a nice bonus. Also, rotating schedules for full-time employees needs to be looked at and changed. In the stores, anyone with kids cannot work for you.

    Lowe's seems to be following the Home Depot business model for success.

    Pros

    Security and good benefits package

    Cons

    abusive scheduling, unfair expectations, lack of follow up, too much delegation and not enough active participation in the culture for Team Lowe's. Absolutely impossible to find a healthy balance between work and home life due to ridiculous corporate scheduling practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to be in touch with associates on the floor. They need to actively participate and show that they will pitch in during prime hours the way they expect everyone else to. They need to hold people accountable for their poor job performance and they need to praise people for going above and beyond their job performance instead of burying themselves in their offices behind closed doors
