    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck and if you're fulltime, benefits are available 2 months after your start date.
    Helping and advising customers is rewarding and fun.

    Cons

    Lowe's is the classic bait-and-switch employer ; they describe a job online and during the interview as one thing, and then in reality it's heavily weighted to the opposite.
    They emphasize that it's At Will Employment, that they can fire you at any time and without notice, and you can quit anytime and without notice. It's in big bold caps on your offer letter. This is a huge red flag - there's a reason for this emphasis. Needless to say, their turnover is horrendous, and strategic, so that benefits don't ever have to be paid. Very few fulltime employees in a store. It's run mostly with temps and part-timers.
    Training: Superficial, poorly coordinated training.
    Advice: The best way to work at Lowe's is short time and as a seasonal temp.
    Don't take this job seriously or as a career.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest during the interview process as to what the position entails.
    This advice goes to HR as well as store management.
