I worked at Lowe's part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

• It was a job. It paid the bills
• Met a few cool people that were fellow co-workers
• Employee Discount
• Can wear jeans and sneakers to work

Cons

• They worked me to the bone. I wanted full-time but they kept me as part-time, giving me 39 hours per week just so that I couldn’t have benefits or vacation.
• They are open on Easter which is ridiculous. I flat out told my manager that if he scheduled me I wasn’t coming in.
• Management is not approachable (at least in the Easton PA store). They sigh and give dirty looks when you try to ask anything.
• As a cashier, I have to call for coverage when I have to use the restroom. A few times, it took them 30+ minutes to send me coverage
• They made front end cashiers such as myself clean at the end of the night. We got stuck cleaning bathrooms and toilets. GROSS! If I wanted to clean toilets, I would have been a janitor. That wasn’t in my job description.
• They never let you out on time. They expect you to stay late after you’ve worked 8-9 hours.
• Discount was only 10% for employees when most companies offer 20%
• Concrete floor, which hurts your feet when you have to stand at register all day

Advice to Management

• Care a little less about making money and more about your employees. You expect employees to be loyal to the company, yet don’t give the same in return.

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

    Pros

    Loved my co workers and job duties, customers and working in the paint department, as well as all areas within store.........

    Cons

    The management has no idea what they are doing when it comes to employee schedules.
    Sometimes I would have to close the store at night and then turn around and open the next day!
    There were four people who worked in my department. Nobody should EVER have to do that!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue on schedules. Start managing instead of overseeing!!! Treat employees with respect and teamwork1
