Pros

$2500 tuition reimbursement annually. Because like many retail jobs, apathy can tend to me the norm, if you are a hard worker that does what's asked by bosses with a good attitude and good work ethic, it's easy to stand out and quickly get promoted or positions you want to move to. Managers at Lowes feel so relieved to have a person they can actually depend on to consistently have their back and work hard. Being that person gets quick rewards at my company.

Cons

Not union, so you really need to pursue promotions to get decent annual raises, but again, it's not hard to move up if you actually work hard and dont get caught being lazy (which tends to be the norm in retail)

Advice to Management

Best piece of advice would be to hold people accountable for the man hours they are being paid. I see so much wasted time being paid for at my company. People not working and just talking, and managers often dont hold people to an acceptable standard. There needs to be more discipline and less looking the other way. It is possible to be a kind manager with a positive attitude and still be able to hold those below you accountable for the time they spend in a day. If more basic structure would be enforced each store would be like a well oiled machine with no need to waste money on overtime for things that should have been taken care of with normal payroll..shelves would always be stocked, customers would be helped, and each store would be making money hand over fist allowing the company to pay better wages to retain well trained employees. But anyhoo...my rant's over. Just sad to see stores with so much potential but falling short because of a lack of assertive fair discipline from management.

    Pros

    Employees are typically given general direction, then left to perform tasks with minimal supervision. Salaries are competitive with or above those at other retailers. Benefits are substantially better than those offered by most other retailers, particularly 401k and Employee Stock Purchase Plan.

    Cons

    Presently, there is excessive emphasis on cost cutting. Staffing levels have been lowered to the point where customer satisfaction is affected. Of course, the stores are still topheavy with store management.

    Advice to Management

    Excessive focus on profitability (read management bonuses) can lead to customer dissatisfaction and actual decreases in profitability over the long term.

    it's very hard to move ahead if you don't fit into the right "clique" , that being said they are not fair across the board when it comes to discipline either.

    Advice to Management

    Start Looking into the inter relationships between your senior management teams and start breaking up the groups so that people will start being treated fairly.
