    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

    Great team with a diverse range of backgrounds and skill sets. Managers are all about helping bring you up to the next level.

    Cons

    It's retail so you'll never ever become independently wealthy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the challenges coming. And don't forget to reward with praise and opportunities.

    Pros

    Provides competitive salaries and hourly wages, based on prior experience; promotes the growth of it employees in their job skills within and outside of the company.

    Cons

    Growth often job skills often involves extensive training seminars away from job site, that may impede on personal time; although expanding on employee skills in order to advance is greatly encouraged, advancement with the company can be very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Site your employees strengths, and encourage them to use those natural gifts or acquired skills to advance in their career with the company, rather than place on the same career track as expected.

    Pros

    Team-oriented environment, decent pay, good benefits, various positions and locations, opportunities to move up

    Cons

    Limited flexibility with schedule, sometimes expected to perform duties outside job descriptions (when another department is short-handed)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee concerns and work with them to balance life and work; should try harder to communicate amongst each other (management)
