Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Gatineau, QC – 23 September 2017
Underpaid for the work you do depending on the department, no comissions even with record breaking sales, no incentives. Most poeple that work there are overqualified and underpaid which bring a somber ambiance of uselessness...
Lead Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 22 June 2017
Mangers couldn't orchestra a water fall at the rear end of Niagara falls, if they were poo a dung beetle wouldn't take em home. They once met Stevie Wonder and even he said he could see they were terrible.
Inventory Control Assistant (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 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.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 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.
the store is only open 16 hours a day
poor wages and lousey shifts. crazy managers act like circus monkeys.
It was a good place to work, if you want to work retail.
Installed Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 4 June 2017
Busy days at work, steady customer flow. Learned a lot about retail, Sales, procedures. Management was supportive, although training lacked a bit. Friendly atmosphere. I enjoyed the customer service end of the position.
gardener (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 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.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 2 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.
