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

    Pros

    The coworkers are amazing to work with.

    Cons

    Management never values your opinion. The try and make you think the pay they are giving you is above normal. Overwork the associates and expect them to bend over to meet their ridiculous demands.

    Advice to Management

    Get better management. Actual train and find knowledgeable candidates for positions. Don’t just hire a pretty face or a friend.

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time

    Pros

    Easy. You work with a small group of people in the back area.

    It's pretty easy, you help unload a truck and stack items from the truck onto pallets.

    The HR manager is really nice. and their rules seem pretty fair. You can wear casual clothing.

    Cons

    the few hours could be too little for some people.

    Pros

    If you get a new Service Manager position the hourly pay is good and you will always get overtime.

    Cons

    As an ASM you are not paid well for the amount of hours you are there. You are salary and have to work a minimum of 11 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people fairly and stop getting rid of good people with all this restructuring.

    Pros

    managers (aka under paid asm's), that's right all responsibilities shifted to the DM's (depart managers). In return, less coverage for customer service, bringing back the team leads and more focus on the specialists again. Seems like (LEF) all was a waste of money cause they are going back to how the management

    Cons

    structure was when I started in 01'. North Lake... what? Lowe's treated me well for many years but now seem to be headed in a direction not focused on the customer. Sad really.

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting rid of the good people that run your business. It's ok Amazon is taking over soon. Bye bye

    I have been working at Lowe's as a contractor

    Pros

    Working with and helping people DIY. They seem to recognize those doing a good job and promote quickly. The work is not difficult if you don't mind being on your feet all day

    Cons

    Lack of communication and real leadership. Low pay. Standing and walking on cement floors ALL day. Stocking practices are not very efficient. They could implement some easy fixes to improve productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Develop better communication, real training, and chain of command
