    Pros

    its retail, long hours, more work than hours to do it in, always run as thin as possible. uphold policy just to be overturned by store managers not willing to put up with the hassle

  6. "Cashier/Customer service represntative"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, long lunch break

    Cons

    The management was really bad there was never enough staff, so there were a lot of unhappy customers, also barely got any of my breaks on time
    they give very long hours 9-hour shifts 5 times a week
    I didn't get any benefits because I was hired as peak/parttime staff even though I was working 40 hours, weekends off were supposed to be every 3 weeks meaning you get a Saturday off every 3 weeks but I didn't get my first Saturday off until 2 months in

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, working from the customer service desk its very clear there weren't enough people to properly get anything done, maybe shorten the shifts so you can have more than 1 person on no one in the department at a time
