    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.

    I worked at Lowe's (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Management overall very 'on-board' with company mission. Customer service a high priority. Internal advancement encouraged by management.

    Remember where you started.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Lowe's is a great company to work for as a whole. Helping customers find what they need from small to big. Making their wishes and dreams become a reality.

    Cons

    Very little training for assistant store managers. Boss was more worried about his bonus than helping his assistants succeed. He was a tyrant. Was promised bonus when I was hired on. Found out later that they hadn't received a bonus in over 5 years. Software was very old. (called Genesis). It took 2 to 3 systems to place a customer order. Very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to let go of store managers who haven't done anything in recent years to allow fresh energy. District needs to stop closing eyes to things happening and focus on the real things that matter and can make Lowe's a better place to work.
