Installed Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – March 26, 2016
Great place to work. Many opportunities to advance yourself into other job areas. The management at my store was fun and cared for the personnel and the company. Glad to have participated in building out store within the District from the bottom to the Top Store and each employee received $1000 bonus. I had only one complaint with a bad apple manager who was not a very nice person to the employees. I resigned because store was too far out and our great store manager moved to Winchester store.
Great employees will to help each other, nice store culture.
Sales Specialist Plumbing (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 16, 2018
The best part about my experience with Lowe's was learning about the products in different departments. It encouraged me to study trades like Plumbing and Electrical outside of work. The hardest part of the job (in some departments) is that there's not enough staff to help you when the day gets really busy. You're constantly pulled in different directions and, at times, you do the work that should be allotted to 2-3 people.
Useless, lazy managers and department “workers”, sexism
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ME – March 16, 2018
Managers can not ever be bothered to do anything. They are just so busy hiding or online shopping to get out of the office. The people with seniority wander doing nothing all day. Finding anybody to do anything is stupidly hard. The install sales guy is blatantly lazy, the commercial sales people won’t help a customer in front of them. There’s a few who nap at their work station.
Going to work before dawn, never seeing a weekend off
Management could be better. Some stores are better than others with managers. Do not get injured, you will spend your life fighting for a paycheck if you do. Working there is ok as long as you can get coverage. Most of the time you do not have enough though.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – March 15, 2018
A typical work day is 9 hours. For about the first two weeks your feet are going to be really sore but they start to adapt afterwards. I highly recommend that you invest in good quality shoes. Do your job and management will love you.
Great working for dedicated and willing higher learning individuals
Contact Center Sales Agent (Former Employee) – Wilkesboro, NC – March 15, 2018
A typical day at work is to be on time or 15 minutes beforehand. It is a continuously learning environment where everyday you expect to learn new task. Management always has an open door. The culture is very friendly and welcoming. The hardest part of the job is not meeting expectations and the most enjoyable is exceeding them
Department Manager (Former Employee) – Bowie, MD – March 15, 2018
Nice place to work. some of the managers and staff members were not team players. You work really hard. You must have great customer service skills to work there. A typical day was coming in and seeing that the store was under staffed many times. I have worked in almost every department in that store. I started as a Pro service employee and them became a Department in 18 months.
Strategist (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – March 15, 2018
A dying island that's increasingly under threat from new, emergent forces in retail; forces that are collectively destined to usurp the organization's prominence in the market with time. Those who retain the reins of power across the organization are ill-equipped and unprepared to confront the growing list of unwelcomed realities that face the organization's future prospects.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – March 15, 2018
When I was hired, I was hired as seasonal, but they told me they would have a spot for me at the end of the season. The end of the season came and I was let go. I left a steady job to work at Lowe's and I was screwed over.
