Friendly and good enviroment to work, but...
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TexasJuly 29, 2014
Pros: luncheons, good people to work with, flexible hours
Cons: upper management tends to have more favoratiblity towards others, get stuck working by myself alot
Lowe's is a great place to work, and has quite a few benefits as well as their ability to be flexible with scheduling to work with you.
The only problem with the company is that any upper management, no matter how correct you are and how well you handle a situation will always side with a customer, just making you more or less look like a jerk in front – more... of the customer and in turn really just devaluing you and making a loss of morale.
The chances for advancement aren't really there very often and when presented interviews are based on a point system rather than the individuals job performance, knowledge, experience, ect
Upper management tends to also keep around employees that don't do much if anything at all, just so they can fill a spot and not have to go through a hiring process. – less

Pros: the work was fair at times.

Its a Job
Customer Sales Associate II (Pro Sales) (Current Employee), State College, PAJuly 28, 2014
Pros: 10% discount, a pay check
Cons: seem to promote the wrong people and usually fropm outside the store.
Its a box store, need I say more. I don't see people having a career with this company, but some do. Hours a all over the place, training is non-existent and brown nosers move up fastest.

Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Louisville, KYJuly 28, 2014
Good job, easy to learn, good people to work with. managers are very stand off and allow the employees to get the job done without any micromanagement.

Hardest part of the job is difficult customers that dont think they can be wrong when they buy the wrong thing or do something outside of the instructions of the item they are purchasing.

Lowes is retail and has many different start times and days off. The daily job requirements change quickly due to staffing.
Kitchen Designer (Current Employee), Knoxville, TNJuly 27, 2014
Pros: helping customers and relationships with co-workers.
Cons: no set schedule, cover multiple departments, difficult or dishonest customers, not able to focus on my main responsibilities
A day at Lowes is always a new and different experience. My job title says that I am a Kitchen Designer but due to staffing I may be required to cover a number of other departments at a time. My co-workers experience the same thing. Most try to do their best to do their job and help the customers. Like other places I have worked, there are good managers – more... and some that need improvement in a number of areas. I enjoy helping customers with their projects. It is frustrating when some customers take advantage of the system to get money from the company. – less

Lowe's is a great company to work for
Customer Service Associate IV (Current Employee), Clearwater, FLJuly 27, 2014
Pros: the company as a whole is a great company to work for.
Cons: the schedules is not consistent nor the hours you may work in a week
A typical day at work consist of helping customer anyway possible. Some manager are great at their job, while other are sub-par as well as co-workers. The hardest part of the job is keeping carts in the store, because the store I work at is a high volume store. The most enjoyable part of the jobs is helping customer figure out the solution to their – more... project. weather it be; home, school, work or everyday living issues. – less

Typical retail environment w/ atypical employees
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Salisbury, MDJuly 27, 2014
Pros: higher than average wages, open enrollment health care
Cons: monotonous, disconnected management and senior staff
Like most large corporate retail chains there is a deluge of nonsensical acronyms, policies, and procedures to get used to at Lowe's.
A typical day begins with clock-in and a check of your store provided email for the goings-on and management communication of any work assignments. From there its off to the sales floor where the customer is the primary – more... concern, but there is plenty of busy work to occupy you on slow sales day.
Upper management is fairly aloof and what they occupy their days with is beyond me. Albeit there are times when ASMs or even the Store Manager feel the need to micro-manage the smallest details or daily tasks.
The Department Managers seem to be the work horses of the store and take most things way too seriously.
Between the CSAs and Specialists there exist a certain rivalry. Specialist are seemingly one rung higher on the ladder and typically feel above most menial tasks as their job is to SELL! The confusion is that all employees primary responsibility on the sales floor is to sell. C'est la vie. The real dividing line between employees is between full-time and part-time. Full-time employees are fairly entrenched and represent a period in Lowe's history when working there was a viable career choice and you could support a family and live a comfortable life. For part-time employees you can look forward to inconsistent scheduling, and randomly cut hours.
All in all this is a fairly easy job with a minimal amount of physical demands. The concrete floor of of a Lowe's store can be hard on your feet for long periods but consistent breaks allowed and recommended throughout the day.
The Lowe's name takes a beating sometimes in public for employees that lack product knowledge but the expectation is on you the employee to take advantage of all the training an material the company provides. – less

Had a bad manager at that time.
Full time Lawn and Garden Cashier (Former Employee), Troutman, NCJuly 26, 2014
Overall employer was ok. I would be stuck outside all shift no matter how hot or how cold. When in the handbook it clearly stated the head cahiers were suppose to which outside cashiers every two hours in extreme hot or extreme cold. I'm southern so 13 degrees for 8 hours is pretty extreme to me.
