    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great learning experience, excellent training, great support from STORE MANAGERS (not Assistant Store Managers), decent pay, EXTREMELY fun environment, EMPOWERED to make our own decisions, community outreach/volunteer opportunities (which is very rewarding)...I can write positives all day.

    Cons

    Lack of support and training from Assistant Store Managers.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Lowe's of Rosedale under Earika Khan and then under Richard Pietsch. It was the greatest experience I have ever had and I have learned a whole lot working under their leadership. Advice to Assistant Store Managers would be to support your teams more and stop disappearing off of the sales floor all day. Make an effort to GROW your Department Managers, as they are ideally next in line for the ASM role. Spend time with them daily by walking their departments and give them CONSTRUCTIVE criticism on opportunities within their areas and in terms of their performance. Teach them how to read reports and understand their business. Additionally, train your Department Managers how to do the same for their associates.
