    I have been working at Lowe's part-time

    Pros

    At the Lowe's that I work at the people are great most of them treat you as family. I have made some great friends at the Lowe's that I am employed at .

    Cons

    Not all employee's look at their job in the same light as others and feel that because they are full-time or have a high paying position that they shouldn't do what is required in their job subscription. But those are far and few.

    Advice to Management

    none

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can bonus based off your store's performance. Pretty decent salary as an assistant store manager. Bonus quarterly a few hundred dollars and a percentage of you salary annually.

    Cons

    Annual Merit raises aren't based off performance. Everyone gets the same percentage....even the bad associates. Raises are 3% of your salary. Approximately $1200 a month. Sounds good. It comes to about $20 extra dollars a week. Not worth all the trouble!
