    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay as far as retail goes.
    Friends over the years
    Easy work when no customer are in.
    Ac in the inside

    Cons

    Management seriously are a bunch of "yes men". They have zero qualification looking over any body. They are robots and are so scared of losing there job, they would sell out there own mother to stay working at Lowe's. It's the "good ole boy" system. You are cool with the right people and you're safe depending who your store manager is.

    Advice to Management

    To the ASM's...Know more then your service managers and specialists. These are the people that have payed their dues. They know more then you. Most ASM's are puppets. Grow a spine... and actually fight for what you believe in. You ASM's were given a break. Mind your p's and q's over the years and get handed a job for $50K a year to walk around in slacks and a collared shirt. But you don't care about anyone. I know all stores environments are different. W. Wichita Lowe's is poison.

    Pros

    best benefits I've ever had at any other job, employees are amazing to work with, and the managers try to make things fun too, set schedule Monday-Friday

    Cons

    It entails a lot of work. You sit or stand for long periods of time and you also have to help receiving when needed.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Rotating days off, ensures 1 weekend off a month. Writing employees schedules. Work around school schedule. Always fostering a learning environment. Veteran's pay is amazing. Comparable to Active Duty.

    Cons

    The executives are so concerned about Home Depot that they address it every meeting.

    Advice to Management

    A little more focus on what is going in internally, as opposed to Home Depot and what they are doing.

    Pros

    Hard work pays off. Good advancement opportunities, Long hours are expected. Very rewarding. Decent pay. If you are passionate, it is a very good work environment.

    Cons

    Company is run like a franchise. Tried to transfer to different store, at same position. Store managers do not communicate. 6 years management experience with company and could not even get a call back for transfer. Very disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Have store managers communicate through out company, not just in market. It is a good ol boys club in market.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    The FSA schedule is great..... Monday thru Friday 6am to 3pm. That being said. I want to get paid more to care more.

    Cons

    I do not get paid enough to care enough... meaning the company policy says 39 hours that's it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep watching out for yourself. It is the safest thing to do. Like policy - don't be friends with anyone LOWER than yourself.
