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.

Love working at Lowes
Sales Associate/ Cashier (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON23 June 2017
Helping customers to find the material they need to work on their projects. Great managers and associates to work with. The hardest part is lifting the five gallon pails of paint. I enjoy talking to the customers to find out what their projects are that they are working on then seeing the customers coming back again and again.
Pros
Social Events
Cons
Heavy work

Home Depot is way better than Lowe's
Kitchen Cabinets Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 June 2017
Worked for 4 years, Very experience with store manager but assistant managers were supportive however terrible coverage on the floor for breaks and lunches. sometimes neighbor department colleagues go for lunch and breaks for ever and you are forced to watch 2 to 3 departments by your self leaving you stressed and frustrated. No room for advancement if you are not store manager's favourite.
Pros
ok salary
Cons
Bad management

Good workplace for summer, not recommended as a part time job to balance with school
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Maple, ON21 June 2017
The typical day of work at Lowes is like any other reail store, long hours, heavily customer service focus and sub pay. With that being said it is a great job for students that would like to work in summer and get some basic information on trades, meeting many people in the field.
Pros
availability
Cons
long hours

Run!
Night Stocker/Receiver (Former Employee) –  Whitby, ON20 June 2017
I was a night stocker at the Whitby Lowe's. The job was TERRIBLE. the night crew manager was the worst boss I have ever worked for. He did not know how to divide the work load properly. He constantly stood at the end of the aisle to watch you.

Trying to book a night off? Goodluck! The management gave you a guilt trip if you dared to be sick and needed time off.

The pay was criminal. $12/hr to bust your butt, with little reward. Getting a raise took a year, and even then it took several reminders.
Pros
None
Cons
Low pay. Heavy work load. Never thanked or appreciated

Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  800 Warden Ave18 June 2017
I enjoyed working for Lowe's Canada, they were always really accommodating while i was going through school. However, I did sometimes feel there were people in leadership roles that didn't always have an idea of what they were doing. Not bad for short term.

Terrible place to work
Customer service associate (Former Employee) –  Prince George, BC16 June 2017
I worked at the new location in Prince George since last summer- Helped with mass receiving and worked my butt off everyday. When the store opened the turn over was MASSIVE, due to terrible management and placing the worst department managers. Fast forward to almost a year later, the management lie to the staff, make them feel worthless and becomes a place that you are not excited to go to everyday. While most associates were getting paid upwords of $17 and hour cashiers are stuck at $11.65-$12. Do not recommend working for this company
Pros
most staff are very nice
Cons
Bad management

This job was very fast paced, but a stable environment. I would highly recommend working here if you don't mind getting your hands on experience with building material and great customers.
