Working as A floor installer for lowes
Subcontractor Floor Installer (Former Employee) – Hudson, NC – February 13, 2017
Firstly, I wouldn't characterize myself as a floor installer. More of a grunt, but I can install floors. What I learned most from working for Lowes is that it's all about patience with yourself and learning more as you go along, instead of diving head first and not being able to accomplish anything to the best degree you are capable of.
The workplace culture is somewhat homogenized, but incredibly friendly and interactive. I mostly got to work with a crew and the homeowners, who were always friendly. The hardest part of the job? EVERYTHING! Literally, everything: Lifting and installing 800lbs a carpet in a day is no small task. However, that endorphine rush definetely makes it all the more enjoyable and I enjoyed getting outdoors more and working fully for my keep.
