    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.

    Pros

    Being very concerned about unionization (which they make apparent in their training videos), Lowe's offered benefits for part and full time employees, decent pay, good breaks, and good support for employees. Management was generally very professional and helpful.

    Cons

    Like in many retail stores, cliques developed. Full timers with the same position as you often believed they were your superior, and management didn't seem to care about preventing it

    Advice to Management

    If your CSAs are calling you on the phone asking for your help with something, don't act like it's a chore! They usually need help to fulfill a customer's order or to get everybody out by closing time!

  10. I've enjoyed my experience so far, but it's always retail and the customers are treated as always right

    Pros

    Great Benefits, and friendly faces to work with! It can be a fun fast paced environment with a different task each day!

    Cons

    Customers know that they can take advantage of the store, and exploit it! There is a Sales Incentive program, but when the store management and market decide what you are giving away, it makes for a troubling work situation.

    Advice to Management

    Know that Saying No will not always get a call to the CCIC system. Ensure that Market Directors are fully versed on the situation, and get their buy in. Help them see every step.
