    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

    Lowe's has been a great company to work for. I feel appreciated and love the people I work with. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement and the company provides great benefits for this line of work.

    Cons

    There are limited Full-time opportunities, you have to adhere to a corporate-mandated schedule rotation with completely open availability if you are a full-time employee, the job requires being able to tolerate difficult customers.

    Pros

    I worked in Outside LG, and enjoyed helping people with projects. Take advantage of company stock options. Other employees were real cool to work with.

    Cons

    Retail type politics and a inconsistent schedule. No real big cons if your used to working retail type job. Leadership left a lot to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Work with people's schedule better please. Happy employee's make a difference.
