    I have been working at Lowe's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the people are the best part of the job. I have worked for the company for almost seven years and they have consistently been fair and have taken good care of me. They have been flexible and encouraged my education. They always look for opportunities to promote and develop people.

    Cons

    Can be very challenging and hectic. Fast paced and difficult to accomplish considerable improvements in a short time period. So much to learn and it takes a long time to become very competent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on training and development of new hires and promotions at the store level. Instate some new form of MTP.

    Current Employee - Department Manager Lowes in Birmingham, AL

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work is mainly indoors and out of the elements, pay has been very competitive and more than fair. Ability to move up through the employee ranks has been encouraged.

    Cons

    The always changing work hours is a definite negative. Dealing with verbally abusive customers.Struggling to meet sales goals is stressful .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ability to train lower level people more through classes, even optional classes would be a great asset for employees. It is so hard to train someone while at the same time assisting customers and dealing with daily goals for the store.
