Management is terrible! The sales managers are like children who pass off every task and problem to either assistant managers or specialists. You also get treated like a child and spoken to like one. They don’t care about you or how you contribute to the company. You are just a body to them. Someone to fill a space. If they don’t like you or if you are replaceable, they will get rid of you. If you are one of the ones that they depend on, they will ride you so hard to the point of breaking. There is favoritism and some managers will tell you that your schedule is based on the needs of the business. Don’t think you will have a work/life balance. You won’t. You will never be able to plan events or activities because your schedule changes constantly. If you have management experience, don’t think you will become a manager here. If you don’t interview well, no matter how hard you have worked and how long you have been with the company, it won’t matter! Everything Lowes does mimics Home Depot. If HD changes their hours, Lowes changes theirs. If Home Depot changes their management structure, so does Lowes. Lowes is so far stuck up Home Depot’s butt they can’t see straight. Sales and good surveys are all that maters for this company. If you’re a woman, be prepared to get sexually haerassed by customers, abused, and mistreated.
Poor management, no work/life balance, immature and hostile work environment
