    Pros

    Management is straight forward and the work is not hard.

    Cons

    The company has decided to eliminate full-time positions creating a more stressful work environment. Also since the restructuring employees on the lower end of the spectrum have been given responsibilities that are not within the job description for which they were hired.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been dealt a losing hand and from my point of view they are doing what they deem is necessary to keep the store running. Although management needs to recognize that simply increasing employees hours and burning out workers will not replace the employees lost over the past year.

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

    Pros

    You're never limited to the knowledge in your own department. There's always an opportunity to learn useful things from other associates, managers, and even customers that can help you with your own home improvement projects.

    Cons

    They run a skeleton crew (at most Lowe's, not just the one in Front Royal) so if someone calls out another department is going to pay for it.

    Advice to Management

    As long as management understands that one associate covering sometimes two departments at a time can only accomplish so much in an 8 hour day I think we can work from there.

    Pros

    Large company that enables a person to change positions and locations.

    Pros

    Schedule is unbeatable. You can either work Monday-Thursday working 10hr says, or you can work Friday-Sunday working 12hr days.

    Relatively easy work.

    Cons

    Low pay in comparison to other warehouse jobs in the area.

    Random days where they will "shut down early" for reasons such as playing bingo.

    Not enough overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Up the pay rate to compete with warehouses in the area like McLane Co for example.
