    I have been working at Lowes Foods full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great support from leadership, and the ability to be creative in your role. Corporate team is MUCH friendlier and more personable than any other retailer i’ve worked for, which I definitely appreciate.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive, and it often reflects in host morale. Slow systems often make simple tasks incredibly frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Bump up those salaries! I’ve worked in leadership in three different grocery retail concepts and Lowes Foods, without a doubt, has the best people! Sadly, the majority always seem to be seeking other employment due to the low wages offered here.

    I have been working at Lowes Foods part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Meet and interact with interesting people on a daily basis. The updated stores are enjoyable to work in.

    Cons

    Part time pay and benefits are lacking. Required to work nights, weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Let Beer Den employees accept tips.

    I have been working at Lowes Foods part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was good experience working with public and a good first job

    Cons

    Below average pay as well as some of the worst compare decisions a company could ever make.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cramming garbage down the throats of all your employees. Actually listen to the anonymous surveys you send out every year.

    I worked at Lowes Foods part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lowes Foods hires great people to work in their stores, and their employee training and continued training are among some of the best I've encountered.

    Cons

    If you work in a store that seems like it might be struggling, due to competition from Walmart or some other megachain store moving in, then expect that your store will be slowly bled to death like a veal calf. Lowes operates on an algorithm that ties in the number of available work hours to the sales of that store. From a "bottom line" perspective I can understand that, yet it leaves the workers that are still there...

    Advice to Management

    Your store employees are what make Lowes Foods worth coming to; if you treat them well and take care of them, you will reap the benefits.
