Hiring and OnboardingDec 7, 2018 - Co-ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The hosts at Lowe's all seem to enjoy working here. I am new to the company but I feel that it is going to be an awesome company. I first had a phone interview with one of the Talent Acquisition Managers and that was a very pleasant experience. She made me feel very comfortable and put me at ease. The next step was an in-person interview with the Division Director and the HR Manager. This was also a good experience as I felt like they wanted to not only see what I can offer them, but what they could offer me. Was a pleasure speaking to both of them. The HR person then contacted me back and explained everything and then the onboarding process was easy and I was walked through every step. I look forward to what is to come and feel that this company can be a fun and rewarding place to work as they consider themselves an entertainment company that sells groceries.
Only thing is Lowe's is a smaller company so some of the computer systems or processes I was use to haven't caught up in some areas. However, that doesn't make it bad because they are so far ahead in other areas.Continue reading

Fantastic company to work forMar 12, 2023 - ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Absolutely loved my job. The environment is unlike any other company I have ever worked for.
They are only located in the Carolinas. I moved back home to WV to be closer to family but unfortunately that meant I could no longer work for LowesContinue reading

The Head Does Not Comprehend What Keept It AloftMar 31, 2023 - Deli Clerk in King, NCRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Quality products made by staff; it's easy to sell something that's actually good, made by colleagues or oneself. Actual performance of the job *can* be easy and enjoyable when fully staffed and ready. Department layout is spacious and sensible, easy to set up, work in and break down without a lot of needless gymnastics. Equipment is easy to maintain and use, if not downright enjoyable.
The resource structure justifies under-paying deli staff, beginning a Catch-22 of employee burnout leading to under-staffing, leading to burnout, etc. Lots of emphasis on filling out checklists which annihilates work-flow, especially when staffing is low. Also, the Chicken Dance is a degrading disruption to producing quality work behind the counter. Clear view of the meat department who get paid at a higher rate, yet get the time and opportunity to socialize, and let me tell you, that is demoralizing as all get out. Often feels like management, especially upper management, speaks a whole different language than front-line workers, and/or sees an entirely different reality than they.Continue reading
