Pros

Benefits and pay are good, if you can ever get off seasonal status. You can learn alot about home improvement products and the discounts aren't bad either.

Cons

The hours are too varied to schedule time to do anything else. Alot of hard work and heavy lifting. I don't feel management looks carefully enough into the employees they already have and continue to hire new seasonal employees. As a result your hours get cut and new employees get some good hours for the first couple of months and the cycle starts over with them. It is a long and painful experience trying to obtain a full time position.

Advice to Management

Recognize talent and think about more promotions from within your own store.

    Pros

    The Coworkers a great people. Lowe's does hire good people for the most part, even though the management at the store level is behind the times when it comes to when is the proper time to hire. Credit is given for possitive work, but it's not often enough by senior store management. The Zone managers are good at their jobs and support the associates under them as much as they possibly can but are pressured, unfairly, to target those whom fall into disfavor with the store manager. Success is possible for workers as long as they play nicely with store management.

    Cons

    Management is very demanding and refuses to get down and dirty with the associates. Management would rather make demands and disipline employees for being too busy helping customers making it impossible to work on the demanded work. Virtually zero credit comes from the store manager, even though he gets thousands in bonuses for having a successful year of sales at the store. Those bonuses come off the backs of the associates management steps on every day. The bonus structure need to be reversed. Associates that deal with the customers should be given the bonuses, as they are who lead the store to true success day in and day out.

    Advice to Management

    Have a heart. Your associates are the real people handling customers. Not enough credit is given to the successes you are having. Those huge bonuses you aquire are because the associates on the floor are doing their jobs.
