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

    Pros

    It is a great company and offers great benefits. For the most part, the atmosphere is upbeat and the customer base is pleasant to work for.

    Cons

    I believe they look at what Home Depot does too much and react to that company. There really is no need to stay open until 9:00 pm (winter hours) of 10:00 pm (summer hours). All that does is make the employees resentful.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to have a set schedule. I know my days off will be the same month to month, but the times change EVERY week with no pattern. It makes it hard to schedule doctor's appointments with such limited knowledge of one's schedule.

    Pros

    Good benefits and the pay scale can be good in Sales or management.

    Cons

    Heavy work load, customers angry because of lack of staffing on the sales floor, odd work hours and days it changes every week.

    Advice to Management

    Try to schedule more sales help during peak sales periods as in weekends and holidays.

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay, equal treatment, opportunity to advance

    Cons

    crazy hours, only closed 2 days a year, NEVER can take any major federal holidays off i.e. Labor Day, Memorial Day, etc.

    Staffing is mostly light so on busy days it can be maniacal

    Advice to Management

    Lowes needs to stop overworking their salaried managers
