I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible working hours, multiple locations and job categories

Cons

Promotion opportunities limited for internal applicants. College graduates who were already employed were given little to no consideration for promotion opportunities.

Advice to Management

Worked in a college town with a flood of young, motivated graduates. Nonexistent pipeline from that talent pool. Opportunities were stifled by existing management who had peaked developmentally. Lot of peers left for other companies because there were little opportunities for internal advancement and seemingly no desire to recruit college graduates who were employed already by company into leadership positions.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    I am fortunate to have a position that does not work on weekends so there is a good work-life balance. It's a Monday - Friday steady schedule that pays pretty well for a store. I like the 401k retirement benefits, too.

    Cons

    I dislike the way that current employees have to apply for positions when they want to move to another area as if they were not even employed with Lowe's at all. For example, if you get tired of working in hardware and would instead like to work in paint then you would have to wait for an opening in paint and apply for it, then hope you get picked for the job. It seems to kill morale.
