Pros

Hourly positions get paid weekly.
Flexible scheduling for PT positions.
Nice benefits if your FT but they rarely hire anyone FT.
The pay is reasonable.

Cons

New employees are not trained well. Manager rely on people who haven't been there long themselves to train new hires, when it should be the department manager job to make sure this person is trained properly. It's not how it was a few years back when the dept. managers actually took time out to do this. Things most certainly have changed.

Advice to Management

Put yourself in our shoes sometime, ask what's going on for a change and what can be done to improve work condition and expectation for employees. Instead you pile on more and more responsibilities on our plates and wonder why it doesn't get done on time. If Lowe's Food actually took the time to and listen to their employees; not only listen but actually made an effort to fix the flaws, it would be a wonderful place to work for.
