    I have been working at Lowe's part-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    For a retail job, this company offers a lot of benefits for its employees that are not mentioned that often. After 10 years here, I'm very happy with the company and how it treats the employee.

    Cons

    Retail hours are the largest draw back for a family person. Night's and weekends get old after awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the little things that the employee does and say thank you.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    Company is very loyal to employees. Lots of incentives. The really value hard workers since they are so far and few in-between sometimes.

    Cons

    Getting yelled at constantly by customers that aren't even the companies fault. It's really demoralizing and it never stops, shakes your faith in humanity.

    Advice to Management

    Well, I am management so I guess I can just talk to myself here. Self: Develop your associates. Show them how to be a great employee.
