    I have been working at Lowe's part-time

    Pros

    Management treats employees with personal reapect

    Cons

    As a full time employee once a month I worked 7 straight 9 hour shifts. When asked I was told many work 8 straight days. You work 3 weekends per month. I switched to part time.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on the employees come to work and hide from customers. This puts an extra burden on those employees who need to cover for those MIA. I resent this.
