Pros

Great compensation. Lots of opportunity. Fast paced and fun. People are treated well. I started out making just over $6 an hour and am now close to 6 figures (with bonuses).

Cons

Hope you enjoy working weekends and holidays. Work-life balance is not much of an option. This is not the fault of the management staff, as it is inherent to the retail industry as a whole.

Advice to Management

I understand that this is a retail business and not much can be done about the weekends and holidays.

    Pros

    employees our valued. management allows you the proper time to do your job. good employees are rewarded for good performance. the work is not hard but does take a solid effort to complete. must have the right personality to work with the public. salaries are fair. If you have the experience and time you will be paid well. I have worked for two other companys such as the depot and find them to be the best of the bunch. Lowes was way too intence to enjoy working there.good managers are the key to a good store. not all are worth working for. but i am happy to be there after 2 years

    Cons

    the schedules are tough. 4 to 1, 6 to 3, 10 to 7, or 3 to midnight. sometimes working for the public can make you crazy. you either have or you don't.

    Advice to Management

    show your employees that they are valued. pay them well and stay out of the office. a manager that is visable on the floor, helping when needed means alot to the rest of the group.
