Featured Review

Former Employee - Sales Associate

I worked at Lowe's Home Improvement part-time for less than a year

Pros

Very flexible schedule. Between the four different part time jobs I had in college, this paid the most and was also the least stressful. Management isn't too strict as long as you just did your thing.... I never faced any conflicts with my coworkers or managers. They were open minded.

Cons

You will have try to a little harder if you wanted to advance in the company, like any other company. But if this is a short term pursuit, I loved this job personally.

Former Employee - Analyst

I worked at Staples full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

great place to work and grow

Cons

mostly pears on the fruit day
