    I have been working at Lowe's (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits available to part timers are ok and low cost. The work hours are perfect for me and are not changed.

    Cons

    Proactive management and safety is lacking in some areas. Full timers don't have the best attitude and too many seem to lack good work ethic

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about correcting obvious safety issues and replace or repair damaged or poorly operating equipment. Provide team members with discussions of substance, not just the same old sales data repeated daily.


  2. "Ok job"

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full time and decent amount of exercise. Consistently walking around all day. Not a whole lot else to say about the pros.

    Cons

    Customers are edgy, and often are borderline illiterate. Management does not support the employees, and only enforces company policy when it is convenient to do so.

    Advice to Management

    When you say you'll support your employee, actually do it. Don't say one thing and do another when you're face to face with a customer and throw the employee under the bus.

  3. "Great pay"

    Some people are hard to work with and for but the pay pays off

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Variety of work within store.

    Cons

    Mandatory rotating schedule that requires full availability from 5:30am to 11:00pm 7 days per week. No more than 1 weekend off per month. Low pay for same positions elsewhere. No commission for sales. No quality of life balance for employees due to extremely restrictive and unnecessarily burdensome corporate scheduling policies.

    Advice to Management

    Provide flexibility for employees by allowing fixed scheduling. Training before starting employees in any positions.

    Don't be afraid to follow through with your decisions.
