Good people to work with ( co-workers ). Communication from all levels of management is very poor. Very high turnover in my department. No shift premium for overnight shift.

Good place to work for the most part, there are room for improvements but overall a good place. The management is sometimes stifled by red tape but they try their best.

i'll miss the people but management needs work and they talked lots of me getting to stay at the beginning but obviously that didn't happen. was really hoping to move departments but instead got laid off after my contract ended.

bad management

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

No room for growth
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

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
