    Pros

    feels like helping your neighbors out on the projects around there homes, it's rewarding helping out your neighbors.

    Cons

    Some of the customers we have to try and help are unhappy and will never be happy with anything . Some can be down right nasty. Those are the only customers that make this job tough sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lowes has a good Oll boy mentality when promoting from within. That's only ok if your on the right side of the fence.

    Lowe's was a great company to work for, but...

    Former Employee - Unloader in Ontario, CA

    I worked at Lowe's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work at a store with great people that were there to help you learn the ropes.

    Cons

    I thought my position was more of a backend freight unloader, but when I had to stock I would be asked questions about a specific area of the store which I had no expertise about. I would direct the customer to the associate in charge of the specific area, but it reflected poorly when there was no one around to help them.
