    Pros

    Flexible schedules, guaranteed work hours, wonderful employees, competitive pay

    Cons

    HR isn't very effective, lots of gossip on the front end, favoritism in promotions

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to try and cut down on the favoritism and get HR managers who actually know what they're doing. Unfortunately, at my store in the past two years, I've had two new HR managers that are equally ineffective at their job.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere with many knowledgeable people. Good products.

    Cons

    A little too much weekend work.

    Advice to Management

    Communication regarding sales events and programs could be better. Initial Training on standard store procedures could be better - a little bit too much learn-as-you-go.

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities for all that are driven and interested in succeeding. Family oriented in all walks of life. Great pay

    Cons

    The scheduling of only one weekend off a month is very difficult, but we all agreed to take the job with knowledge of this in advance.

    Pros

    I loved being part of such a great group of people. I enjoyed the training provided. It's a great place to work and management always took notice of a job well done.

    Cons

    It was sometimes frustrating to see people who don't work as hard as you and they're making the same pay, but that's the case with retail anyway. I wish the yearly raise had been bigger. Closing back to back with an open was sort of a bummer, but that's all right. I'd love to reapply but my circumstances have changed and I'd need a set schedule. I wish they allowed that.

    Advice to Management

    See cons - also, consider allowing a set schedule for zoned employees. Do a better job at publicizing offers for promotion or advancement.

    Great place to work. Co-workers are great to work with. Customers who come to Lowe's to shop are loyal customers who prefer to shop at Lowe's because store is clean and well organized.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance into a full time position without re-applying.

    Advice to Management

    Lessen more to employee's feed back and suggestions.
