    Very good to their employees

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They pay well for a retail job, they have good benefits, it's not an excessively difficult job. They give their full-time employees 39 hours a week and offer a lot of financial options like direct deposit, stock purchase and 401K.

    Cons

    The hours fluctuate weekly, even for regular, full-time employees. You have to have full availability to work full-time and this can range from 5am to 11pm on any day of the week. You have no idea until two weeks out what your schedule will be for a given week, what days you will or will not be working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fixed hours would be wonderful. I love working here, but the extreme fluctuation in the hours will definitely be what ultimately leads to me seeking employment elsewhere.

    Pros

    Everyone is really nice at the store where I work. They started me at $17.00 an hour which is amazing!!! Worked for WalMart for $8.65 an hour before this job. Bye bye Walmart.

    Cons

    You have to catch on really quick. There are no product knowledge videos or ways to learn the products you are selling unless you do it on your own somehow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to have product knowledge videos. Honestly, we talk about installation and everything right away. I know about a lot of products but c'mon Lol.........
