    Pros

    They do have some room for advancement. But retail being what it is, have not really wanted to go into management. The big box stores and retail in general just don't pay management that much for how much work they do. Plus the fact that there is so much peer pressure on the management team to not have much of a life outside of their job has not made me look at management as a possible career move. But besides that the company does have a pretty good attitude towards employees. A few years back there were some head cashiers that almost provoked a little mini uprising amongst the cashiers. But the company dealt with it in a surprisingly effective way and the masses put down their pitch forks!

    Besides that the only people that have been laid off or fired, were cut because of serious infractions of policy. There has'nt been one lay off for anything petty or un-called for.

    Overall most of the other associates I have worked with have been well vetted. This is a huge aspect of your work enviorment. There are some laggards, but the majority are hard working and good fits for their jobs.

    Cons

    The main negative thing is that this is still a retail situation with all the stuff that this entails. But for a company that is part of the big box take over of the American economy, it has managed to hang on to some good core values. The company was started by some really brilliant people and they have managed to continue to recruit pretty good management and regular staff. Technology is also changing the way things are being done and retail will not be immune to the seismic changes coming up in the next few years. The code 50 situation can be a bit frustrating on some days. Maybe implement some kind of incentive plan. There does'nt seem to be any upside to answering them and most of the staff have considered themselves above dealing with it.

    Advice to Management

    Been with quite a few retail operations, including the main competitor. The management teams I have worked with at Lowes have been among the best I have ever worked with and been very fair. I guess the main advice is to not work so hard and try not to push yourselves so much.

    Pros

    They pay pretty well for the area. They are pretty accomidating when it comes to adjusting your schedule. Not a terrible place to work.

    Cons

    As a seasonal associate they stick you in the lawn and garden area. Noone else in the store is willing to work out there in the summertime. False promises of being hired on full time. But hey you do get to spend a quarter of your employment there inside training.

    Advice to Management

    I realize this is a big box setting, but just be around. It seemed as though when i first started that I could take my vest off and hide somewhere for my entire shift and noone would be the wiser
