Will Lowes hire someone with a past DUI?
disillusioned 16 days ago
I was recently offered a seasonal position with Lowe's...I accepted and am now in the process of 'training'. The HR mgr who is clearly swamped is guiding a few of us thru the training process but, she is so overloaded that she is sidetracked and unable to effectively convey instruction, pretty much leaving us 'floating in the abyss' by not being clear or consistent in giving direction and information. I was absolutely thrilled about getting this job--feeling very confident that it was going to be a good experience because home improvement is a huge area of interest for me, --but, I am beginning to get the feeling there is a lot of EGO MADNESS and tension driving those in power at Lowe's---more and more I am seeing signs of a cut-throat mentality and some pretty bad attitudes. As it stands right now, I am just going to plug along--hope that when I get out to the garden dept., things will level off and I can just work, stay busy and avoid any of the politics (I may be dreaming on that one....lol!) But, that little dark cloud (I sensed even before I came to this page)of disillusionment is growing thicker each day I am there. Don't get me wrong...I am meeting some very cool peeps there, but, I am clearly getting the feeling that the PHILOSOPHY there is PUT UP and SHUT UP..and people just make the rules as they go in order to cover their butts. I hope I am wrong. To those who have shared their bad experiences...my heart goes out to you. It is 'slim pickin's' out there..and unfortunately, I question if it is much different in ANY company these days. Employers have the advantage---and TAKE advantage because there are so many people out there who are desperate for work--with this, it makes people ugly-competitive and they will do anything to cover their asses because they are not doing their job as managers or otherwise. :( Meanwhile, still sending out resumes.

Well I have been doing research on lowes starting pay. I have found so many people making over 8.50 an hour. I have only been making 7.97 an hour. WHY? Before Lowes, I have worked in Big Lots for a year and a half. (The only retail experience I had) But I have had around 9 years going on 10 years of work experience. My brother who has less work experience in both in retail and overall. He got started at 8.26 an hour. I am a little disappointed at the moment. I felt like I got the short end of the stick.

When applying online for a job at Lowe's, it asks you to select a single position. If I am interested in more than one position, should I apply multiple times, or will I be considered for any of the open positions available that I am qualified for?

It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at Lowe's?
Any advice on striking the right note?

I had an interview for a cashier position at lowes a while back which went pretty well in my opinion. I also had an employee refferal. The hiring manager said she would be in contact with my regarding her decision, but I never heard from her again. Also, when I checked my candidate profile, the status of my application said no longer considering. Does this mean that I did not get the job, or is this a standard message that is placed when an application has been pulled for an interview?

Every business has its own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Lowe's?
Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers?
What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Lowe's?
