    Pros

    Lowe's provides an excellent atmosphere that is fun, safe, and comfortable to work in. I was worried about not knowing where things were when a customer asked, but you can always look to a fellow employee to give you a hand....with anything! If you've never used powered equipment, that will change.

    Cons

    If you aren't full time, hours will get cut around Summer time. Having a heavy work-load and having to cover 1 or 2 other departments. When you put on the vest, the customer will assume that you know EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING in the store while others will expect you to be in 2 places at once. It may seem tedious at times, but no matter how busy you are, you have to make it a habit to stop and ask EVERY customer (with a smile) if they could use your help for anything.

    Advice to Management

    Just remember what it was like when you were entry level. Even if you are a fast learner, you can't get it all figured out in a day...or even a month. Be good to your employees and they will be good to you....at least they should, anyways.

    Pros

    Provides competitive salaries and hourly wages, based on prior experience; promotes the growth of it employees in their job skills within and outside of the company.

    Cons

    Growth often job skills often involves extensive training seminars away from job site, that may impede on personal time; although expanding on employee skills in order to advance is greatly encouraged, advancement with the company can be very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Site your employees strengths, and encourage them to use those natural gifts or acquired skills to advance in their career with the company, rather than place on the same career track as expected.

    Pros

    Good pay, awesome coworkers. Really a team environment thanks to the associates who take pride and ownership. Most take pride in the store.

    Cons

    Odd management structure, most of the assistant managers are there when needed and ready to roll up their sleeves to help out. Store manager not so much, ask him/her for help, Well good luck there.

    Advice to Management

    lead by example! At least at my store you'd have to break down the office door to find the GM. Morning meetings were nothing but spouting out numbers instead of recognition and more important matters.
