Loader and Electrical (Current Employee) – Maple, ON – 5 December 2017
Decent work environment, work culture was great, management not so much. Management are not even well educated on their own products or aware of the location of products. Ignorant to the fact all employees should be well educated and informed on the department they will be working in. Leave most employees on the working floor to fend for themselves. Asking for a raise or a review on work progress is almost in possible, especially when managers come and go.
Good for those in school
not the fairest or most competitive places to work
Enjoyed being part of the new store opening in Barrie, working from the ground floor up.
Department Manager (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 7 December 2017
Long hours yielded satisfaction when able to solve a customer's problem, advancement was attainable, team was great to work with. Hardest part was dealing with disgruntled customers. Management was all over the place, no continuity in their policies.
Stocker/Receiver (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – 1 December 2017
Everyday I would get up at 3:30 am go to work and stock shelves until about 10:00 then go to the docking area unload trucks with the forklift and take products out to the floor when i wasn't busy i would usually move appliances or help out other people using a picker and forklift down stock stuff or put items up into storage until 4:00 and clock out
learned a lot and met some great people
training was very limited you were not always prepared for questions by customers
Delivery Assistant (Current Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 22 November 2017
The job never allows you to be standing still or bored, which in my opinion I love. There are times when the management do not work as hard as the workers which cause the store to go in a downward spiral of misfunction.
Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 10 November 2017
Lots of part time positions but difficult to move on, there seem to be limited full time positions . When applying to a full time position there is not feed back all of the sudden it's filled and you never hear anything about it.
Millwork associate (Former Employee) – Sault-Sainte-Marie, ON – 6 November 2017
Worked there for more than 8 months and they started blaming stuff on me that I didnt do. This went on for a couple months until they finally brought me into the office and fired me, they said they didnt have a reason for it but it was effective immediately. I do not reccomend working here unless you want to work shifts that are all over the place and get yelled at in front of customers for absolutely nothing.
Strong management team with clear vision on growth.
DC Operations Coach (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 6 November 2017
Unbelievable growth over the last 5yrs. Purchase of Rona creating opportunities. Great management team. Positive environment. Always looking for strong growth potential candidates from within the company.
Night Receiver/Stocker (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 3 November 2017
As with all retail positions, the job has pros and cons. I've enjoyed working here for 10 years, and now I'm ready for a new challenge. The management could use some work, and they could be more supportive, but they do take what you say under consideration. The pay scale they use is questionable sometimes, but I feel personally well paid for the work I do.
Load Puller (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 18 October 2017
I'm not going to lie the job can be stressful sometimes just like any other job. The load puller job itself is really easy basically you just pull orders for delivery for the next couple of days, if there's any problems email the department that the order applies too for help. It not complicated.
Lowes is a great employer to work for they recognize talent. I went from being an Overnight Stocker to the Overnight load puller and now I have been promoted to a Department Manager in less then 2 years. So there's alot of room for advancement here at Lowes, you just have to work hard and be humble. Don't complain about problems be a problem solver and come up with solutions that how you get ahead at Lowes or any company.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 17 October 2017
It was hard to get ahead in this company as a cashier, or peak Cashier. Peak is honestly the worst. At first when the store opened this were fine and one by one the crew/family started to quit or got fired. People in other departments were able to switch around with ease where as a cashier is stuck.
