Its okay as a first job...
Dont worry (Current Employee) – Boiling Springs, SC – August 25, 2016
Okay, if you're planning on working at Lowe's as your first job from high school or college, cool try it out. If it's going to be your 2nd or 3rd job, I'd recommend you look some place else for a job. No offense.
When lowes gives you a raise or a promotion, don't expect too much. (Don't hold your breath if you're thinking to go from like 9.50$ to 12.00$.. maybe .30cent raise)
If you're joining a stocking crew, get ready for other crew members calling out, making up excuses just to leave early or not to come into work at all. Managers no different.
The truck unloaders will most likely mess up every merchandise pallet and every department will be on ever pallet. (Pain in the butt to organize)
Depends on what lowes you want work for, get ready for probably these kinds of hours:
sunday 10pm- Monday 6am,
Monday 10pm- Tuesday 6am,
Tuesday 10pm- Wednesday 6am,
Wednesday 10pm - Thursday 6am,
Thursday 10pm- Friday 6am and so on.
The only day you'll probably get off is Saturday. These hours maybe too: Monday- Friday 2am-11am. You might be asked to work overnight if you want extra cash.
Free lunch every 90 days (if no employee or customer injuries. Good luck), 3 15 minute breaks (depending on manager)
Employees call out, unloaders are not organized
