Productive workday with little to no acknowledgement of existence.
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Bryan, TXJuly 22, 2014
Pros: pay, flexibility, discounts, customer attitude
Cons: management
You get to interact with customers who are generally friendly and always willing to have a conversation, making the job very bearable. The problem that I have with Lowe's in the Bryan location is that the management here is the worst that I've ever been under. Out of all the store managers that we have, only 1 of them come into work with smiles on their – more... faces and acknowledge his underlings. The rest of the managers don't even care to know your name. Help is not readily available, the response time for customers who need assistance is unbelievably delayed because many of the employees simply don't care or help is not available. If you're working in the front end you receive the wrath of the customer's anger due to the work of many of your coworkers that work on the sales floor. If it wasn't for the friendly environment produced by the customers, I would have left a long time ago.

Although there are many unpleasant aspects of working for this location, they provide you with: great benefits, good pay, and flexibility with your schedule. – less

Lowes is a great place to work
Lowes Sales Representative (Current Employee), Summerville, SCJuly 22, 2014
Pros: the support system that is provided within my store is great, fast paced, staying busy and learning something new everyday.
Cons: cutting the hours at random times and the erratic hours.
There is not much I can say negative about working at Lowes, the people are great, the customers are more than likely people you would want to have contact with on a regular basis and the management are willing to help guide you in a direction with constructive criticism as needed.

Fun place to work and learn about crafts and weekend projects
Engage in customer service (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXJuly 21, 2014
Pros: lowe's is a learning process, you are tested on what you learn.
Cons: more part time postions than fulltime
I loved working at Lowe's because I am a very creative person and I love embarking on unknown projects to learn and gain more inside to the learning of new things. I think it's a big place for me to get lost in and embracing projects that I would have never tackle before .

Good place to work if you don't like structure
Department Manager (Current Employee), New YorkJuly 21, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: unpaid holidays, no team work, poor management
Lowe's has the potential to be a great place to work. The pay is good and for the most part the people are friendly. However, the management teams are very reactive instead of being proactive. Nothing happens until there is a problem and then they play pass the buck. They say family is first but do not allow for you to have any schedule restrictions – more... for the full time employees or they will not hire you. It's bad enough you are forced to work holidays instead of being with your family but they don't even compensate you for it as the only paid holidays are Christmas and Thanksgiving. – less

Pros: learn, teammembers, schedule
Cons: various thngs and problmes that can occur
If we have enough employees we sometimes have a smooth day otherwise sometimes it can be kaotic. I have learned a lot out of my years being at Lowe's and continue to learn more from my coworkers and management. Enjoyable part of the day is just being their and love working with customers that come in the door.

great co-workers and a fun enviroment to work in
Receiver/ Stocker (Former Employee), Saugus, MAJuly 20, 2014
Pros: employee discounts and the co-workers
A typical day at work would be taking in the truck and stocking inventory, assisting customers with questions, and loading heavy products into their cars. Daily use of heavy machinery and driving the forklift, reach lift, and using the order picker. I learned how to effectively use power equipment. Co-workers were always willing to help out and give – more... advice when needed my training with them helped me perform well on the job. Management was always very professional and communication was great. The hardest part of the job was learning how to sort the boxes from the truck. I loved the employee discounts and benefits that I received while I was there. – less

Pricing Coordinator , CSA II (Former Employee), Sevierville, TNJuly 18, 2014
you will be required to do a lot of training on the products sold and learn a great deal of info, excellent family work environment, downfall is that it is a corporate company which leads to lack of job security
