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

Pros

Great pay, great benefits, great people. I love my job!

Cons

Corporate doesn't know what they're doing half the time, plant orders are forced on me based on previous year reports but my department goes by weather! Horrible hours.

Advice to Management

If someone can't do their job because you schedule them at night to sweep floors but pay them top price- something is wrong. If someone has been working in the plant industry for 16 years yet you refuse to listen to them and then lose money - something is wrong. If you set standards for all stores and refuse to follow through with every store - something is wrong.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Vacation Time

    Cons

    Disconnected/Disillusioned Corporate Culture
    Very stressful working conditions
    Very Unfocused Management
    Corporate seems more concerned with cutting costs than improving stores

    Advice to Management

    1. Simplify and Unify strategies and expectations so employees know what is expected of them and they know what the Lowes definition of doing a good job is!
    2. Get to know your customers better! Do not do something just because it looks good to other Lowes management or shareholders, do it because it is good for the CUSTOMER which in turn will be GREAT for Lowes.
    3. Your employees ARE the company treat them like they own the company instead of slaves you control!


  2. "Greatest place to work!"
