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

    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is better than the average retail company. Bonus is good if the store makes their sales goals and customer service goals.

    Cons

    A lot of changes and restructuring going on in the company. Several positions have been eliminated. Training program is not very strong.

    Advice to Management

    Be accountable

    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.

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

    Pros

    Had flexible hours and was able to work at least 40 a week if I wanted. Worked with you on how much you wanted to work. Very easy to pick up with very little training. Good for people who enjoy hands on training. Long breaks 15 minutes every 4 hours and an hour for lunch.

    Cons

    Depending on how your store is doing in sales determines how long they keep seasonal workers for the summer so you might find yourself without a job for the last month or so of the summer.
