I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good salary, hourly wage. Work with long term employees who know their stuff. Associates are very friendly, dedicated hard working and know how to give great customer service.

Cons

Took away bonuses, commissions and incentives to sell. Management very uptight and worried about losing their jobs, makes it hard on everyone else. Not enough recognition for a job well done, by upper management.

Advice to Management

Loosen up and have more fun!

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Helping people find what they need, driving the forklifts and other machinery.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. You have at least 3 managers telling you what to do and they usually don't tell you the same thing. They like to keep as few employees there as possible so you could be responsible for 2-3 department by yourself, including customer service re-stocking and facing.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee needs help, help them. Better communication.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The money is good for this type of retail work. You get paid holiday time off.

    Cons

    The scheduling is awful. You work a continuous rotating yet ambiguous schedule that does not allow for a good work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Going forward, make the work life balance real for the hourly employees, not just a corporate rotating schedule or changed as management deems necessary to run the business. Personal time matters. Some of us have children or other family to care for. Some of us are going to college to further our education, so an ambiguous schedule is a nightmare for us to follow just to stay employed.
