    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

    Progressive, dynamic environment, propelled by technology focus drive to grow and prosper. Employees are friendly collaborative and focused on building the company and its future

    Cons

    Mgmt needs to focus on building good culture, trust, empowering employees, long-term interests of employees. Manage both upwards and downwards within the organisation

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good money if you're a specialist. Set rotation in schedule (although recent talks of that changing). Chance for bonuses. 401k, benefits, time off.

    Cons

    Unappreciated for outstanding work. Not getting a raise if you transfer to a different store during a certain time (happened to me twice, so I didn't get a raise until my 3rd year). Getting promoted (from within) is based on your interview answers, rather than how good you would succeed at the position. Sometimes, you're just another number as opposed to a person.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with the employees. Don't throw your employees under the bus to try to save yourself

    Pros

    Great Coworkers, Enough Hours, 401K Options

    Cons

    Management, Customer Service isn't always easy

    Advice to Management

    It would be a better environment if management would back up their employees in conversation with customers. Customers are not always right and sales associates have their hands tied trying to follow company rules.
