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

    Pros

    The pay is consistent, and that's all i can say

    Cons

    Management team could never agree on anything. There was no manager support, or organization of any kind. All of the managers were in such a hurry to go home at night that a proper closing was never done. Management only knew how to delegate work to the ambitious workers. Store closing would not have been such an issue if all employees had to follow the same rules. We were supposed to all have the same rules, but since management always broke the rules, there were no real set of rules to follow. It was a catastrophe i that place

    Advice to Management

    Read the cons that I listed, and do something about it
