    Pros

    Nice people but you can find nice people anywhere but beware, you'll get all over these stores, employees throwing others under the bus.

    Cons

    For Lowe's the customer is always right, even if they are racists to employees right in front of managers. Super outdated systems (DOS), old and dirty computers, management treats the SOB contractors with higher respect and the nice ones they just ignore them. They only worry about the company, what you earn or what you want to earn as an employee or professional has to be sync with they're strategy or you'll get managers talking in your ear like tyrants saying you should shut up and follow orders. I wouldn't recommend Lowe's to anyone, and I mean anyone. Lowe's employees don't get bonuses or quarterly payouts because manager give out discounts to get rid of customers and those decisions dig into all around store goals, but they don't say that. Ask anyone in any store when was the last time they got a quarterly payout. Home Depot makes sure their employees get compensated but Lowe's takes away instead giving out.

    Advice to Management

    Working there I've given ideas, suggestions, advice, tips, props, a whole football field of things to make the company at least look better and the answer I got from ALL THE MANAGERS was "Lowe's doesn't care" or "Good luck with that one". Believe me when I say that store management doesn't care about their employees because higher management doesn't care. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WORKING AT LOWE'S, THEY AREN'T WORRIED ABOUT YOU.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Chance for advancement is good. Most stores look within for promotions first. No two days are ever the same. The only constant is change.

    Cons

    Some customers are instant experts at what they ask for help with. It is retail after all. Store management varies greatly from store to store. A good one makes your job easier.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people in the trenches that have done it for a while. We know what we're talking about most of the time.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits and room to grow, just have to befriend the right people in order to get an opportunity to move up

    Cons

    Assistant managers constantly bump heads to impress corporate managers which leads to the lower end workers doing tasks just to undo what was done

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    Steady employment if you're not one of the associates that loose their jobs during restructuring.

    Cons

    Good older boy network in each store. If you do your job well it doesn't matter just as if you do a poor job. Continual cost cutting affects employees and their families which they care nothing about. I've been here 14 years and had to scratch and claw to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for their job instead of handing jobs out just because you like someone who is less qualified.

    Stop trying to be Home Depot.
