    Job security. Affordable short commute for Mooresville Office. Challenging work. The work is always changing and I get to be at the edge of new technologies.

    Pros

    Good management team in the stores, great place to work most of the time.

    Cons

    Company has forgotten that it's great customer service that brings people back, they are in the process of eliminating experienced full-time associates and replacing them with inexperienced part-timers.

    Advice to Management

    You reap what you sow, saving a little payroll is not going to help sales in the long run.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is an independent work environment that gives you a lot of flexibility to work on what your strengths are. I have great relationships with the other managers I work with in the store and the other employees. While most HRM's work every other Saturday, I actually like the schedule because I will have another day off during the week. You really get to manage your own time making for a very good work/life balance. While the base pay is lower than most HR positions, the bonus is usually generous, as long as you achieve it.

    Cons

    Lowe's is going through a lot of structural changes now, which has kept everyone on edge about their positions, not only with HR but pretty much everyone in the stores and area staff. Nobody knows exactly what the plan is with HR, but it does seem like there are changes to come in the near future. Also, there is not a lot of opportunities for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    While I understand the need for change, it makes it very difficult to focus on your job when you're wondering if you're going to be the next to go. Almost every single person in the stores are on edge and it creates an unengaged workforce and a hardship on turnover and hiring.
