Good Place to Work
Inventory Control Assistant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB18 June 2017
Good place to work, however, training is insufficient and communications between head office and sites is minimal. My position is inventory assistant but there is no one else in the inventory group so I am not assisting anyone.Other roles are more basic but again roles are skewed and there really seems to be no direction.

Dont work here
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC18 June 2017
Incapable store management, half of which cant change a light bulb, unable to help customers or staff. At my old store the manager constantly sabotaged staff lowered moral and productivity. Wanted us to abandon real customers to answer phones and would get angry when told u were to busy with customer to answer phone or her 10 pages in 90 seconds. Brutally low wages as 80% of all jobs are part time with no benefits. Most jobs are minimum wage and short shifts. It should be illegal to operate like this. Head office constantly works against stores and is to lazy to add 10% to its bottom line by fixing its brutal inventory system.
Things have only gotten worse under Lowes. Morale is very low. Dont work for this company unless desperate based on my 3 years there.
Pros
the store is only open 16 hours a day
Cons
poor wages and lousey shifts. crazy managers act like circus monkeys.

Coop placement with job work environment
Floor Associate (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON6 June 2017
I worked here as a coop student, I enjoyed the work environment and got the work done quickly. I learned many skills and I learned a lot about the product.

I learned the work terms, such as; Front-facing: where you fix the product on the shelves to have them look organised and make the shelves look full (even if the stock is low)

I learned how the paint is mixed and the colour is set to a specific pigment.

The management was great and always helpful and able to answer any of my questions..
Pros
Various sections to learn
Cons
work load varied

Good hours, poor breaks, poor management
gardener (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 May 2017
Overall the job was convenient for a summer student, however would not recommend as a permanent position. While I did not come into conflict with the management, I noticed that they would be very hypocritical and petty about break times. For example a manager would have a "chat" with one of the employees for being 1 minute over on the fifteen minute break.

Stingy with hours, unhappy staff
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON2 May 2017
After a certain point in time, managers would staff less and less people in order to save hours in their budgets but it would hurt the customer service. Many complaints were received from customers about the staffing. (i.e.one staff member in a large department). This affected the morale of the staff and made the environment less comfortable.
Pros
Flexible with shift exchanges
Cons
at the mercy of poor staffing

It was a Job
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 May 2017
Nothing much to say. Working at RONA was a typical job; you show up, do your work, and go home.

It was simple enough to appease customers and help people to find the materials or supplies they were looking for.

It helps to work with someone who knows a lot about the department you are working in when you first start. That way you can locate items for customers easily.
Pros
Made some money and gained knowledge about the materials in the store
Cons
If you don't know what you are looking for, you don't make customers happy
