bad management
Sales Specialist (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON22 July 2017
toxic work environment. management treats employees awful and the shifts are terrible. I was harassed and nothing was done about it. I asked about my shifts and they retaliated by making fake write ups.

Fast paced, and hard work
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON18 July 2017
A lot of fast paced and heavy lifting, customer service is key point but lack of staffing makes it difficult to manage multiple tasks at once. Lack of guidence and leadership makes it a difficult work place to manage yourself in and he higher the management goes the less they know what's happening

Commercial Order Picker (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 July 2017
great place to work at, great people too. everyone is so friendly and it feels like you're part of a family. There's a lot of different things to learn around the entire store about different products.

Installs Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB16 July 2017
It was good to help individuals but the management was not very professional. I learned to be patient with customers as well as co-workers. The company has people of different academic and social levels and so at times it is difficult to operate on a more or less save level of understanding.
Pros
One hour lunch
Cons
Pushing and lifting big appliences

Typical Big Box Retail Job
Department Manager (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC13 July 2017
Understaffed, No clear direction in what employees need to accomplish. Hard to get tasks done in this kind of environment. The moral is declining more and more each day. Lot's of staff turnover as staff do not get enough hours.
Pros
Helping Customers
Cons
Moral is low

not enough focus on customer service anymore
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON9 July 2017
When Lowe's first came to Canada it was a really exciting time! Finally a company that put customer service first! Unfortunately it only lasted for a few years, then the focus for the company changed..
I've had several good years though

Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 July 2017
Was fired and given no reason. Too short staffed to do a great job most of the time.Very poorly run company. Managers spend a lot of time when there is no staff telling you why there is no staff. You must think mature adults are really stupid.
Cons
Really stupid schedules

Good Pay / Bad Job Security
Head Cashier (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON5 July 2017
The only thing I've noticed with Lowe's is that they love to hire "Peak" associates. They will hire you for a certain amount of months, and if they like you, they will renew your contract as a Peak associate AGAIN instead of a part-timer, to avoid giving your company benefits or any sort of Job Security.
Pros
Good pay; takes care of employees
Cons
No job security / benefits

Alright job with great co workers
Loader (Current Employee) –  Sarnia, ON29 June 2017
Lowes is a good place to work for minimum wage. Every co worker is great, which makes it an enjoyable place to work. The job itself, loader, is a decent job for high school kids, or people who do not have an education yet.

Slave labour
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON29 June 2017
Worked there in multiple departments. Don't expect any recognition of your work from management, or their help...they'll just walk on by you, no matter how busy your department is and no matter how angry customers are getting due to waiting. If you're on returns, they will never, ever have your back. They basically walk around the store not doing much of anything, just bossing people around and passing off customers regardless of how busy you are. Department managers are decent at least. Part timers are extremely mistreated; over worked, not offered the incentive package...expendable and indentured servitude. Expect weird hours with no consistency of any kind, early mornings, late evenings, stupidly low pay for the amount of work you do, and short staffing of departments. That being said, among some of the most miserable and defeated employees you'll ever meet, there are a few really good and fun people who work the floor. But really, you're probably better off monitoring a tire fire than working here. At one point the washroom wasn't even cleaned for days because the management didn't book any of the cleaning staff in, and God forbid they did something. I've been in cleaner washrooms on construction sites. Done my rant...basically, don't expect much if you want to work here.
Pros
A few really good people.
Cons
Everything else.

Great staff, Management is firm but fair
Night Shift Stocker (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON26 June 2017
Lowe's is one of the best companies to work for as per my experience. Received bonuses and pay increase semi annually. The Management is top quality for sure. Any one whom has the chance to work here would be wise to do so.
