    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

    There is a great management team at my store and it is a really laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    It is impossible to get rid of anyone at Lowe's, bad workers stay around to draw a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up on the slackers and put harsher policies in place.

    Pros

    Lowe's treats their employees with respect and empowers them to grow their careers. The Market management teams are trained and developed to ensure the success of the stores.

    Cons

    As with all companies, the benefits that are offered are expensive but they do provide the coverage needed with full explanations

    Advice to Management

    Continue to monitor what happens in the stores so there is consistency.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, willing to work with school schedules, relatively easy job, and friendly employees. You also have access to 1 hour of optional training a day (when business is slow).

    Cons

    Low wages for the amount of effort and knowledge required to do your job well. Management doesnt seem to take your opinions and suggestions seriously.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that a more in depth training curriculum would better benefit the employees, the customers, and the company as a whole.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for, great management, great co workers, all around a good experience that I miss very much!

    Cons

    Customers can be hard to deal with but if you are polite and know what you are doing you will most likely succeed.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advise to management, It has a been a couple years since I worked at the particular store I was at so management has changed.

    Wonderful management, schedule is released well ahead of time, better than average starting pay

    Pros

    If you have no education, this is a good place to work. You can learn a lot about things you can do for your home. Quarterly bonus known as SSEI.

    Cons

    Biased when promoting. Doesn't matter experience, skills, or education. Shady politics.

    Advice to Management

    Implement and enforce corporate views in each location.
