    I worked at Lowe's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    7-4, M-F. I knew my hours and what I would be doing daily. Asking off needs to be 2 weeks in advance, but they always allow it unless someone else in your position asked off first then it is a maybe. Pretty good pay to start off, and you get your forklift/ machine quipment license. Also you build relationships with your co-workers and drivers who come and deliver. Customers are pretty easy and understanding as well.

    Cons

    Some workers there are lazy and talk behind your back, also some managers are lazy. Co-workers were the worst part of the job because they think since they have been there longer then you they have the right to talk down to you and try to walk all over you.

    Advice to Management

    Help when help is needed
