    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Toronto, ON
    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -above market salary for retail positions
    -a lot of autonomy for employees
    -very clear policy and procedures
    -management provides you with all the tools you need for the job
    -supportive coworkers (for the most part)

    Cons

    -the work environment varies tremendously by store, some worse some better
    -many senior managers are incompetent and do not set a good example for employees
    -management often doesn't give rationale for their decisions
    -uniform isnt comfortable at all - jeans and CSA steel toes
    -performance appraisals are a joke. tend to be based on how liked you are rather than any quantitative measure of your performance
    -most of advancement is through kissing up to management rather than having to do with skill or knowledge
    -a lot of people end up working fulltime hours while being labeled part time associates and therefore are exempt from benefits dispite same contributions
    -do not allow for any overtime hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work with the employees on the floor a little more rather than hiding in the office and stop dumping all your work on your associates

    Pros

    great environment for employees to work. competitive pay and a great place to start

    when seasonal hours are slow, it is hard to get hours but if you learn other departments you can move around

    pay employees better and provide benefits to peak employees.

    have what costco has in retaining summer students.
