    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People you work with are usually nice
    The pay is higher than at most other places
    Some flexiility with schedule
    A 1 hour lunch on most work days
    Motivates you to find a new job

    Cons

    Customers tend to be very rude
    Too many times something seems to go wrong
    You only get promoted or can switch to another position if they allow you to, which is pretty rare
    The internal communication is fairly poor

    Advice to Management

    It is ok to tell customers no. Also, listen to the employees more because they might have some reasonable ideas.
