    Pros

    You learn a lot of home improvement. Decent pay compared to most retail. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Management will always assume you're not working. If you're doing well in sales it doesn't get acknowledged unless you're customer is remodeling their home and you're selling them the entire project.

    If you Allow the evil and bad in the world to take control, it will consume you. It can suck you in and never let you go... But just like the rest of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, flexible hours, lots of employee recognition, employee discount, plenty of opportunity for advancement, & a great H.R. Department

    Cons

    Severely understaffed for the amount of business our location brings in. Call out policy is way too relaxed & is abused by many employees without any corrective action being taken.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce more corrective action on problem employees. Lowe's is a great company, make sure that you have great people representing you!

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

    Pros

    they generally hire really friendly people, so most of my coworkers were nice people

    Cons

    Maybe it was my particular property but it just seemed like no one wanted to be there. working part time means you can work anywhere from not at all to 20 hours a week. The employee is only 10%.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to employees are equals.
