    Former Employee - Sales Specialist in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    a local job near where you live, an occasional discount on products.

    Cons

    impossible managers, tasks, and incompetent hires make you work 3x what they pay you for. little internal promotion, and constant write-ups and disciplinary policy. managers do little and know less often relying on the sales specialists to handle all problem issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get back to what the store hired when they first opened, competent and well trained employees.

    They are a best of breed retailer. They offer stable employment.

    Continue to manage closely revenue to headcount ratio and explore growing into Mexico and other Latin America countries where high growth is anticipated.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employees are like family
    Now using Payrate Advisor to determine hourly pay, instead of spreadsheet

    Cons

    Decrease in opportunity for advancement
    Management vs Hourly Employee
    Stability seems weakened
    No spiffs and commissions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe that when you'r'e done dishing out the dirt, you may be next in line
