Customer Service Associate, Hardware, Tooling (Former Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – May 26, 2017
A good adventure helping people turn ideas into happening projects. Using past experiences to help in home repair, home additions, and new projects was fun. Building relationships with customers was like a small town positive environment and made going into Lowe's each day very much an adventure. The varying schedules from very early in the morning or late at night made family life stressful, not having a set schedule made planning family time impossible.That was the bad part of being employed at Lowe's,
the management would not teach u to crosstrain in different departments
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – May 26, 2017
I overly loved working for lowes and tryed to learn a different field of retail/ home improvement. I was there for awhile and the only reason for me leaving was the management would not cross train there employees in different departments.i like being cross train myself because i like knowing were items were also when a customer ask me can u help me it feels nice when u can take that customers to that item/items
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Bedford, IN – May 26, 2017
I love working for lowes, but management could use some improvements to make working there the ultimate experience. Overall, it's a great starting job and there's a lot of benefits that come with the job.
I love my job to the full extent, every one is like family the managers really help you succeed towards your goals in life. My day involves challenges but over come those challenges as working as a team or one on one with another associate in various departments.
Loss Prevention and Safety Manager (Former Employee) – Farmville, VA – May 26, 2017
Good company, great benefits. New corporate structure has put a strain on morale in some locations. Opportunity for advancement has become more difficult for those wanting management positions, due to decreased number of managers at each store.
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 25, 2017
Lowes is an extraordinary company to work for, especially if your an graduate from high school or need a job that is very flexible and will pay considerably more than the typical fast food chains, That being said I would like to see Lowes specifically the management and corporate connect with the employees on a more personal level and understand the needs of the employees a bit more. Customer service is Lowes model but how do we follow that model if you have unsatisfied employees.
ZONE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Indiana – May 25, 2017
At my time of employment at Lowe's it was great. Excellent pay and benefits. Career advancement was outstanding. Employee pricing on special order items. I did love this job. you worked a lot, but I was salary. that was years ago, not sure how it is now.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – California – May 25, 2017
It's a fun environment to work in but the management sucks, they like to play favorites. It is also hard to move up with in the company depending on which store you are at like 0056. Unless you are the store managers favorite you won't be able to move up at all. They will hire someone from another store or someone from the outside. They say they want someone with experience but won't give you the opportunity to learn and grow with your store. It is also hard to transfer at 0056. Other than all these problems the people you work with are amazing we have plenty of fun times together but the management really sucks.
Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Plainville, MA – May 25, 2017
Not a bad job, fairly easy when you learn the position and products. If you're a good worker it is not hard to excel within the company. Favoritism can be a factor with management but if you're a team player helping out doesn't go unnoticed. The particular store I worked at had a great group of people and there is a lot you can learn. At the end of the day it is a retail position, however, pay is comparatively better than some other companies.
Good people, room for growth
Hours- no schedule consistency, Store is only closed 2 days a year (Thanksgiving & Christmas)
Cashier / Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Galesburg, IL – May 25, 2017
8 hour days. Depending on what department you work, your day will vary. Learned a lot about varying levels of home improvement, and correct techniques on how to repair, paint, or install things. Management varies as well, based on the individual you are working for. Several different section managers like things done different ways. Workplace culture is very much like a family, everyone is willing to help out, even if it is not their department. Call buttons are timed and the store is judged by corporate on how quick the employees respond. I have worked as a cashier and a sales associate, and both jobs are very easy going. I particularly enjoyed meeting new customers and helping them with various projects and the rapport that you get with continuous customers.
Breaks and lunches were a fair amount of time, family-like co-workers
