    I have been working at Lowe's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They pay phenomenally well. They have recently gained a new CEO and he is looking out for the company instead of lining his pockets. The dress code is relaxed and tattoos, piercings, and hair are almost a none issue (within reason).

    Cons

    It is still retail so sometimes it’s not the greatest, but I personally love my job. Their full time to part time ratio is sometimes too high so they can’t hire full time people.

    Advice to Management

    Check in more with your subordinates.

    Pros

    Lowe's is a good hardware/building materials company that provides employees with the opportunity for growth within the company. It is a good company to use as a platform to jump into the building materials/industrial market.

    Cons

    Needs to be more opportunities for climbing the career ladder at Lowe's. Need more management opportunities. Need more account management positions.

    Advice to Management

    Make the career ladder more obvious for employees who want to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Great pay and lots of leeway to things that you need to get done. All about making your own time management while on the clock.

    Barely any time to spend for yourself. Your entire life is Lowe's

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting from within. Only Hire externals as entry level and anyone going for management should be promoted from within.
