    Pros

    There is a great management team at my store and it is a really laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    It is impossible to get rid of anyone at Lowe's, bad workers stay around to draw a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up on the slackers and put harsher policies in place.

    Pros

    The pay is awesome i went from 10.30 to 11.85 in just 6 months the work is not hard just talking and helping customers

    Cons

    Management is very sneaky they will hold positions and not post them online so somewhat hard to advance if you arent a kissing butt

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to all employees and not show favoritism based on color and base it on hard work and dedication

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to move up with the company, moving into management the pay is much better, , 401k, 2 weeks vacation after 1 year

    Cons

    Work overload, not enough help at times to keep payroll down, incompetent managers always seem to move up

    Advice to Management

    Learn your job better, act like your care about your direct employees, communication goes a long way with keeping employees satisfied at work

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, willing to work with school schedules, relatively easy job, and friendly employees. You also have access to 1 hour of optional training a day (when business is slow).

    Cons

    Low wages for the amount of effort and knowledge required to do your job well. Management doesnt seem to take your opinions and suggestions seriously.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that a more in depth training curriculum would better benefit the employees, the customers, and the company as a whole.

    Pros

    The company is a very good company. They do take care of their employees. PT associates receive benefits which includes vacation. People who work here tend to forget those benefits that they receive. They get bonus' based on sales. Sales cures all.

    Cons

    Store Managers that don't care. Over time you will run into Store Managers that are afraid of confrontation. Ridiculous. Grow some balls and act like you have them. Don't you know that they will respect you more because you are only helping them.


  10. It's not hard work. It's just boring and tedious.

    Pros

    I guess the employee discount... It's only 10% off though. Also, it is a pretty independent job for the most part.

    Cons

    3rd gets old really quick. They freight estimate the day before is usually off. This means that projected light days become all night grinds.

    Advice to Management

    Don't complain about employee work to their managers and then smile in their face.

    Pros

    Cashiers and most Sales Floor staff are committed to their jobs and all have a great sense of humor.

    Cons

    Cashiers are restricted in contributing to overall customer experience. Some sales staff take it too serious..
