    Pros

    Fast paced, fun to help homeowners and contractors with their home or business needs. Flexible work hours, great benefits, great culture.

    Cons

    None, great company to work for. Very good pay for the work and management was great as well. Look to your part timers they have a lot more to offer and would have considered full time if had the opportunity to become manager of my department.

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoyed working with LOWE'S and wish I could have moved up the ladder faster. I was only part time but could have contributed to the management team even as a part timer. Would have liked to secured an assistant manager position.

    I worked at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    Moved up and around fairly quickly

    Cons

    Toxic environment. If you were not a favourite, regardless of how well you did your job, you would soon find yourself either moved to a lower position or fired.

    I worked at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    Good people, good fun. Training was sufficient and I learn a lot on the job. The team I worked with made the time bearable.

    Cons

    Long hours, low bonus and benefits. Would appreciate if the working environment is more uplifting but again, it's the team that makes the difference.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to listen to the juniors more and incorporate our feedback. The company can't grow without retaining the young people
