Terrible place to work, only advancement oppurtunities to lazy people
Csa (Former Employee) – Ashland – 19 April 2013
Being the new guy the daily things would consist of working nothing but 5 to 10s getting stuck cleaning up everyones messes throughtout the day. Then youll work your butt off and see nothing but lazy people getting better payin jobs there, while you get nowhere. Management is okay but dont expect them to speak up for you or anyone else, the store I came from everyone was scared of the HR manager and what ever this HR wanted they got it wouldnt matter if someone was more qualified than others who applied whoever was there friend or who went and kissed their butt was the person who would get the job

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.
loved working in a clean environment, the job was good, management has their favorites and their is lots of gossiping between management to staff and staff to management. which was the hardest part of the job. the best part is most of the staff.

Lowes is a good company to work for but hard to move up the ladder. Lowes is a large company with many great idea and offers the staff courses to take to continue their learning and in hopes of moving up with in the company.

Sales Specialist (Current Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 22 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.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 18 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, AB – 17 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.
load puller (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 17 July 2017
co-works make the job alright but management is trash that doesnt understand how certain jobs work. when you see a dm sitting on their phone for the shift while their department is struggling you learn fast they dont care.
Installs Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 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.
Department Manager (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 13 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.
some of the employees are good most are useless in any department
Flooring salesman (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 11 July 2017
some employees know where things are in the store most do not and do not care about the clenliness of the store or any department but their own.every department thinks their deparment matters and no other, the managers dont keep up knowing their staff, the hr manager didnt care enough about anything to make sure i got my benifits after 3 months of me being there
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 9 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
