    I worked at Lowe's as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly team who is willing to help you and provide you with the right resources to accomplish your tasks.

    Cons

    I can't think of any, but you need to step up your game and read lots of previous emails and documentations in order to be on the same page with the Team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good work.

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

    Pros

    Some stores can be flexible with school schedules.
    Not your typical low-commitment retail atmosphere. Employees seem to view their employment there as more of a career.

    Cons

    Limited support/training from managers. Management would push me to offer Credit Card applications and other promotions to customers, sometimes this bordered harassment and made shoppers feel uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be flexible with hours. As far as the Credit Card thing goes... In general, employees care about our customer and don't want to harass them. Encourage employees to identify customers who would benefit from the credit program before approaching them.

    Some managers are good and understand the design process...some are just not. Product is good quality.

    Set up a design space that is private for the designers. Fewer mistakes would be made.
