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

    Pros

    Bonuses are ok at specialist and department manager. People you work with are probably the only thing that makes the job fun.

    Cons

    Working Weekends, No set schedule, Customers are difficult some days. Executives keeping taking lower level benefits away such as commission and making bonus programs harder to reach so they don't have to pay out.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within not external. Make set shifts company wide.

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

    Pros

    Lowe's offers better than average pay for retail, better than average health and retirement benefits, paid vacation, floating holiday days, sick pay, and some room for advancement. Many of the employees are wonderful to work with and really care about their customers. Most days are fast paced, making the days go by quicker.

    Cons

    In the last couple of years, a consulting firm was hired to make business adjustments to raise stock prices. Sounds good, right? It would be if Lowe's were not systematically removing experienced and dedicated personnel to bring in employees at lower wages. We are being "Wal-Mart-ized".

    While I agree some of the departments could be run this way, most cannot. This is generally not a cash and carry retailer. Most of our customers need hands on advice from true professionals.

    Commissions were cut over a year ago, creating a mass exodus of said employees. A stipend was given to all commissioned employees, which is appreciated. These cuts were to "save costs", but then many corporate office executives were given a 15% raise. A store employee is lucky if they get 2.5%, many of which only get 1% or less. How is this going to boost moral?

    The schedule is typical retail with no regularity of hours or days off. Work/home life balance can be tricky.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your senior associates. Many of us have been around for years and love the company. While we are all embracing the changes, many of us feel we are being pushed out for lesser paid employees. Employees should not live in constant fear for their jobs, especially when the programs continue to change. Choose a course and stick to it; at least long enough to see results.
