    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.

    The senior management was very employee oriented and acted respectfully to their employees. The culture of the company gelled well with how associates interacted with customers/clients. Customer service was one of the highest rated in the home improvement industry.

    Pros

    The manager was very friendly along with most customers. I enjoyed helping customers solve their home improvement needs.

    Have more associates working in customer service, one to two is not enough during the summer. Also be more consistent about having an operator scheduled for peak hours 7 days a week.
