Incompetence Left, Right and Center
Customer Service Associate- Paint (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 4 July 2016
Are you under 30 and a male? If the answer is yes prepare to be abused.
As a male under 30, you will be expected to complete the work of 3-6 people, while other employees stand around giving you brainless smiles and otherwise being useless.
Get hurt doing such work, oh well, sorry for you. You're a part timer cause' we're to cheap to pay benefits, and we'll deny any claims made through workers' comp.
Aside from being a mule this is a company where the management knows less than the front line employees, yet this is the case at Lowe's.
You will be called into the office and disciplined for not asking enough questions, you begin asking more questions and your manager cannot answer as they themselves do not know.
ASM's are also a joke, many of them struggle to find the intelligence to walk and talk and the same time, let alone effectively manage
Finally Equipment is pathetic. Be prepared to have your equipment fail on a daily basis. Also be prepared either not to have your equipment fixed at all, or to have a half-hearted repair job done to it.
Do Yourself a Favour and Work Elsewhere
Some of the Co-workers
Cheap Cheap Cheap, Sexist Expectations, Zero Regard for Employees, Zero Advancement, Poor Wages, Won't give Full-Time (Too Cheap to pay Benefits)
