    Pros

    Very good to retired veterans

    Cons

    Don't exempt progessive suggestions, out of hand!

    Listen to employees suggestion, even if, not on the store line!! Back employees, rather than assuming customer is correct, in all instances.

    Pros

    Most customers, and most of the co workers

    Cons

    Poorly trained management. No merit based pay for the exceptional employees

    Advice to Management

    Accept the fact that your coworkers, who are not in management, can have great ideas, that need to be brought to fruition to make the company a better place to work. Keep your best employees by paying them well

    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.

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time

    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.
