    I have been working at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    Fun place to work, it's very busy which makes the days go by very fast.

    Cons

    It's retail hours and as such, don't expect much of a personal life. You'll be working when everyone else is at the lake of having dinner with their family.

    Pros

    Clean, great co-workers, opportunities to learn

    Cons

    Aloof management, irregular hours, lack of training

    Advice to Management

    Make your lazier employees pull their weight. Put younger, able-bodied employees in the more physical jobs so older employees aren’t doing all the heavy work. Listen and use the knowledge people come into their jobs with.

    I worked at Lowe's (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you’re a student, a lot of students work there so you can have connection with coworkers

    Cons

    Lack of coordination
    Lack of scheduling
    No direction
    Terrible training, was trained by someone who was only working their two weeks
    Customers are self absorbed so you have to deal with them
    Working 50 hours a week with no benefits
    There’s full time, part time, and where most people are, seasonal that just get their contracts renewed
    Care more about customers then own staff

    Advice to Management

    Get your stuff together and give part time to all your employees minimum
