    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.

    Management sucks, you can only move up if you kiss up, policy is a complete fool(they don't follow it), doesn't care about employees

    Pros

    There are some quality people to work with. Opportunity for advancement. You get out of it what you put into it. Enough stores around the country to transfer too, if needed.

    Cons

    Promoting quality associates could improve. Communication should improve. Proper training and ongoing training should improve.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, Promote, Hold assoc. accountable, Invest in associates, walk the walk, don't talk the talk.
