Might not get your break on time, learned a lot from more experienced staff, welcoming atmosphere especially from older co-workers.
Full-Time Cashier (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 July 2018
A typical day at Lowe's can start at 6 a.m. and end at 11 p.m. So be prepared to be flexible and work shift work. Don't expect to get your break on time due to the fact that it is on a schedule and is followed by the head cashier. Only, this person can allow you to go on breaks.
If someone, phones in sick the schedule stays the same. The workplace culture is typical of any retail sales job. You, gossip about what everyone, is saying and doing. The hardest part of the job is trying to get along with everyone else. Having to learn about the different products in each department. What you are allowed to do and when you should be calling for department manager or supervisor. Also, having to clean up especially the washrooms after the store is closed. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you are always busy, meeting people, you could have great staff to work with, wages a little higher than other retailers, helping people, promotion.
Pros
One hour lunch and two fifteen minutes break. Full benefits as a Part time employee.
Cons
low salary, difficulty to advance, can be demoted, fired easily, expected to meet sales target.

okay workplace fun people to work with
lumber worker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 June 2018
A typical day at work would be providing outstanding costumer service while assisting costumers with any questions they may have or when they need any wood cut.

I learned how to properly operate a saw. I also learned how to properly show great costumer serious.

The management was fun to work with and was easy going.

The hardest part was learning where everything was in such a big store.

The most enjoyable part of the job has to be meeting new people and finding out what they are building.
Pros
sometimes there would be a free BBQ lunch

PLUMBING DEPARTMENT MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 April 2018
Customer service is uppermost. Department managers must be efficient in multitasking, training and delegating tasks. Dealing with requests from the store management team can be trying at times. Most enjoyable part of job is recognition from customers
Pros
providing knowledge and solutions to customers
Cons
too many shift changes in a week

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB22 January 2018
The best place to work is in Lowe's West side. All the staff members are very helpful. Managers appraise every new idea anyone brings in and these ideas are implemented as well

Better than Walmart
Plumbing Sales Specialist Full Time (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 July 2017
There is no training other the on the job, meaning you need to learn quickly and without much interaction with other associates. There doesn't seem to be a lot of long term associates working for the company the max would be 4-5 years
the shifts are 9 hours with one hour lunches.
IMPACT is their company go to for sales and customer service
They use a dos based point of sale
The assistant managers are always hidden in the office the DM seem to pretty much run the store.


all management jobs are done internally
Pros
lots of contests
Cons
No training

Installs Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB16 July 2017
It was good to help individuals but the management was not very professional. I learned to be patient with customers as well as co-workers. The company has people of different academic and social levels and so at times it is difficult to operate on a more or less save level of understanding.
Pros
One hour lunch
Cons
Pushing and lifting big appliences

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

Sales Specialist/Department Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 January 2017
Being department manager of Plumbing had very unique challenges. It was often the busiest department as we provided solutions to repair faulty plumbing, where other departments would be selling new tools, flooring, and building materials.

Management was suffocating. Micromanaging and unrealistic task assignments to an overworked and understaffed team made days long and hectic. Sales were always the priority, but often other tasks would be assigned when only 1 or 2 associates were working.
