    Pros

    Great Benefits and stock purchase plan. Very relaxed attitude. Management can be very accommodating when it comes to needing specific dates off. The pay is good, however it's unsatisfactory when comparing commission rates earned with prior companies and current sales volume to your static pay rate.

    Cons

    No incentive to sell. The consistent pay rate is nice, however both the company and the employee would benefit from structuring pay scale based on both an hourly rate and a performance bonus based on the individuals performance and not the store performance (which they have). The attitude is at times too relaxed as I've experience both employees and managers say very inappropriate things within ear shot of customers.

    Advice to Management

    Take an economics course, or two.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Lowes Canada.

    Interview

    Applied online. I received an email the next day to set up an interview. I had 2 time choices, I picked the earliest one. I went to my interview 2 days later. I was interviewed by the HR manager. She asked me 8 questions, she wrote down everything I said. The questions where easy customer service questions and I tried to answer them as in a cashier postion. She told me that she was hiring two cashiers and interviewing 4 people. That I would get an email back by the next day whether I got the job or not. I received an email about 4 hours later saying that I got the job. It came with a job offer with the pay rate I would get and if I wanted to accept it. I accepted and I got another email from the HR manager asking me to bring in my ID and SS card. When I went in she did a swab drug test on me. I was told I would get another email when to come in for orientation.
