Good place to work.
Supervisor/Key Holder (Current Employee) –  Whitby, ON11 January 2018
Working at Lowe's will teach you patience and test it daily. There are many opportunities to learn about the retail industry in this big box store. Managers are often mentors to staff. You will need to work as a team often and depend heavily on communication to ensure the customers get their product and leaves the store happy.
Pros
Good starter job for students in post secondary or out of high school, You learn how to handle conflict professionally.

Understaffing

Ok place to work if you like retail
Product Support Associate (Former Employee) –  Lowe's Brampton7 January 2018
Not a bad place to work, people are friendly, there is room for advancement, but the pay is minimum and slightly above. There is a lot of cronyism between friends and it is difficult to get into an area that you really want.
Pros
Clean environment
Cons
Little control on shift work

Well integrated,performance oriented and customer driven approach
Kitchen specialist (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON19 December 2017
Lowe's has a congenial workplace environment with an exceptional customer oriented approach. It has a well balanced competitive atmosphere which enables the associates to deliver their best as per the customers needs and expectations.
Living up to the expectations of the customers and delivering the promised services is challenging, but at Lowes we endeavor for excellence

Could be better
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) –  Maple, ON19 December 2017
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.
Pros
The people you work with
Cons
Management

You would serve customers at the checkout and direct people to products. The best part of the job was the flexible hours that you could work and the worst part was the management.

Department Manager (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON7 December 2017

Decent workplace
Loader and Electrical (Current Employee) –  Maple, ON5 December 2017
Decent work environment, work culture was great, management not so much.
Management are not even well educated on their own products or aware of the location of products.
Ignorant to the fact all employees should be well educated and informed on the department they will be working in. Leave most employees on the working floor to fend for themselves.
Asking for a raise or a review on work progress is almost in possible, especially when managers come and go.
Pros
Good for those in school
Cons
not the fairest or most competitive places to work
