    I worked at Lowes Foods part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lowes Foods hires great people to work in their stores, and their employee training and continued training are among some of the best I've encountered.

    Cons

    If you work in a store that seems like it might be struggling, due to competition from Walmart or some other megachain store moving in, then expect that your store will be slowly bled to death like a veal calf. Lowes operates on an algorithm that ties in the number of available work hours to the sales of that store. From a "bottom line" perspective I can understand that, yet it leaves the workers that are still... there cynical, desperate, and less likely to offer excellent customer service when their occupation gets whittled down to "hobby" hours while simultaneously having rhetoric discussing Lowes as a community store shoved in their faces. The pay at Lowes is not competitive, either. Expect to work as near to minimum wage as possible for a specialty job while other grocery stores that Lowes seeks to compete with actually manage a *living* wage for a similar position.

    Advice to Management

    Your store employees are what make Lowes Foods worth coming to; if you treat them well and take care of them, you will reap the benefits.
