    Pros

    Good Benefits and a set work rotation. Your schedule is posted 1 month in advance so you can plan ahead.

    Cons

    Most stores seem to hire from outside, so moving up is hard. And with the recent cut back on management positions, there are more people that already have management experience applying for those jobs. So growth is slim at best.

    Advice to Management

    They need more knowledgeable full timers, instead of the current inexperienced part timer model surplus business model that's been adopted.

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for retail, if you have a good manager it is an enjoyable job. The full time rotation allows to have some form of a normal life and consistency which is uncommon in box store retail.

    Cons

    The job can be great or awful depending on the managers. With the new structure there is an extreme lack of advancement.
