I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Descent pay once you get into a position above a CSA
Work hours can be very flexible if you give enough of an advance notice to time off requests
Get to work with people everyday and help with suggestions and problem solving for home projects
Not your standard 9 to 5 cubicle job where you stare at a computer screen all day

Cons

Have to be able to work with many different types of personalities
Retail hours and days of work can be somewhat demanding
Pay is just average for CSA entry level jobs

Advice to Management

Take more of an active role in mentoring good workers to encourage advancement through the ranks
Take the time to ensure new employees get proper training before being set loose on the floor.

    Amazing place to work at HQ - couldn't ask for anything more. The campus is simply outstanding.

    Tremendous turnover in leadership, very chaotic, high level of misalignment between the business and IT

    Advice to Management

    Empower your front-line personnel and managers more.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay for work performed, benefits are good (stock purchase plan 15% off, 401k matches 6% of contribution, off one weekend plus extra sunday a month, 40% of base bonus end of year depending on store sales, 2 weeks of vacation after 1 year 3 weeks after 5 years 4 weeks after 15 years

    Cons

    Bonus went from 60% to 40%, inventory bonus gone, health insurance is not very good and keeps geting worse, 4 weeks of vacations used to be after 10 years and is now 15 years. Most other retailers offer every other weekend off, and more vacation sooner

    Advice to Management

    I like most of the many changes except, taking away of inventory bonus, and sales bonus %
