CSA (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 30 January 2018
Lowes offers a lot more opportunity for advancement, IF, your store has openings and IF your managers like you more then other people. It was alright place to work, my co workers are what made it worth it. Management took out their stress on staff and they paid the price later when staff quit.Its another retail job, not much different then Home Depot, other then a few more opportunities really. They were flexible with schedules which was nice, but a lot of the time it wasn't worth the stress and pain of working there. They ask too much of staff for what they pay most of them.
Fun and exciting workplace with a great environment

Lowes was a fun place to work. The people I worked with were for the most part kind, fun and worked hard. The management team cared deeply for their staff and did whatever they good to maintain a healthy work environment.

I only look forward to going to work for the people. The job itself is okay, its not the greatest for the pay. Management treats you like a number that can be replaced, they give the weak workers chance after chance but give the hard workers a difficult time for small errors. They'll ask you to do a lot of favours for them but when it comes down to you asking for a favour, its like the world is going to end for them. Sometimes, you just have to wonder why management keep certain people around even though they've been pretty much useless. All in all, its a "JOB" just over broke, and not a career. It pays for bills and school and thats pretty much it.

After forty one years in the work force, the nine that I spent working here were the worst!
Of the six Store Managers only one saw the true potential in employees and treated them accordingly and with some semblance of respect. The other five as well as all of the senior management team over the years can only be summed up as; condescending, disrespectful and most of all incompetent!!! These people only advance employees that will be loyal to covering their incompetence and not based on their skills and merits to actually do the job properly. The proof is revealed when these employees are transferred to another store and are found indeed to be incompetent and let go!
For nine years I was proficient and impeccable at my job. I had never been “written up” and maintained outstanding customer service. I even helped with my department manager’s cycle counts, negative on hand reports etc. when asked and performed them competently. However, when I applied for a department manager position or any other position, I was always told that I lacked the pertinent skills. Ironically the candidates that ended up getting the position in most cases really did lack the pertinent skills! There is so much more that if went on I could fill volumes with it. I don’t know if head office is aware of these things or not but, Lowes lost a valuable employee (and possibly many others) due to this type of conduct.

i'll miss the people but management needs work and they talked lots of me getting to stay at the beginning but obviously that didn't happen. was really hoping to move departments but instead got laid off after my contract ended.
