I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

OK pay, plenty of benifits to choose from, co-workers become second family because you're always at work.

Cons

Not enough employee's or hours to cover departments. Store sales volumn has set number of employee's and hours per department yet Store Manager never allows that many employee's to be hired.

Advice to Management

Regional Managers need to make sure store's have the number of employee's allowed per department. They do their walk through after all the employee's have worked for days getting all the shelves perfect for them, tell Dept Managers they should have 7 employee's instead of 4, tell the Store Mgr to get them hired, have their private meeting with the Store Mgr, leave, and no extra help ever gets hired.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement, thank you for paying for my ticket out of this hostile corporation
    The job itself could be easy if we were given the tools to do it
    Getting money every two weeks

    Cons

    unreachable and unclear goals and expectations
    Joke of a computer system, it is HORRIBLE
    Corporate is way out of touch with the base stores
    They continue to launch all this "feel good" crap, but I don't want to hear about it. I want new computer systems,so the customer does not have to wait 30-45 minutes to spend thousands of dollars while the computer crashes yet again for the tenth time in one day. It is so frustrating to be so ill equipped to do my job.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a couple weeks in a store out of your comfort zone and realize the horrible policies you implement are unachievable
