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

Department Manager (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB18 December 2017
It all depends on the staff around you. Management need to understand they're staff better and help more. People at the top are no existent to store staff

No room for growth
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

Fast Paced Retail Environment
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.

Co workers was always great. Managing the cashiers was my first experience as a leader thus helping me to build my leaderships skills. The enjoyable part of my job is to get involved with clients everyday.

Nice place, but upper management needs help
Commercial Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 November 2015
I liked working there for a large portion of the job, it was stressful but rewarding kind of. I however had a problem of the macro-managing from your plethora of managers to report to. You would get different orders from different managers, very often conflicting with each other. They demanded too many things (such as look after another department even though youre drowning in work from your own department). When the store first started (I helped build the store), its manager was meh, but the next manager was amazing. He would go around to the departments and ask if they needed help, and he had a hand in everything but didnt feel like he was breathing down your neck. He was an awesome manager, keyword was. I assume he had a lot of pressure from the higher ups because he changed drastically to a delegate type of manager without really listening to the employees on their feedback.

Being there from the beginning and seeing people come and go was hard but you got to work with a lot of nice people (also a lot of bad ones too). It was very fast paced but overall not a terrible place to work.

Nice PT job
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 September 2015
Employees are friendly, hard-wroking.
Experiences with management have been 50/50; there's been times where requests with management is good, but just as many times frustrating and annoying.
Typical 8 hour days with a 1 hour lunch, with very little overtime possible.
Keeps you on your feet most of the day.
Flexibility of hours is alright.
More-than-alright pay for a part-time job.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Demanding job (physically and socially)

poor management at the ASM level
Lumber associate, part time (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, west end2 August 2015
Overall I loved working for Lowes, West End. Store manager is great. Staff were also great to work with. However, the ASM's, for the most part have minimal people and leadership skills. In particular would be the loss prevention/safety manager. This individual consistently harasses and intimidates the female staff and members of the staff whose only income is Lowes. He has gone so far as to send a female employee up a ladder to clean fixtures while she was in a leg cast. He has a hate on for the military and has said, in front of anyone willing to listen, that he will get this person or that person. He has made one young lady cry and quit her job. These things are known by management but nothing is ever done to him. Since he has come to the west end location(from the south store) Lowes has lost some very good staff and the morale, that was once very high, is now gone. Lowes, at least in the West end, does not seem to care about their staff enough to fix the problems and would rather continually hire and retrain staff. Frustrating for those of us that care about Lowes and our jobs
Pros
staff, store manager
Cons
safety/loss prevention, ASM's
