I worked at Lowe's as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

The online floor is a great group of people, everyone is very nice. Ping pong tables, an N64 and Wii help to give people breaks when you need them. Ping Pong matches can get intense.

Cons

I came into a position with Lowe's in a contracted position, never having worked at Lowe's before. Was not given a job full time because they said I didn't "catch on" to their system as quickly as they wanted. Like my prior boss warned me, it is a burn and churn company when you first come in.

Advice to Management

When someone is new to the whole Lowe's company they made need more time learning the system than someone who has worked for you several years prior.
