Great first step if it’s your first job

If you work in the back you will work and cleanup everyday when you walk in. After that, you start working your job and prepare for freight coming in.As of writing this, appliance trucks come in on Mondays and Thursdays. Very rarely will they dump a truck on weekends but it does happen. You learn how to operate several lifts typically on your first week which is the fun part. Lifts vary and operate a little differently but they work the same. Of course, if you’re younger than 21 they won’t let you operate any heavy lifts. Management is mediocre I can’t specify why. It really varies but most are generally understanding. Great workplace culture.Hardest part is management.Most enjoyable part of this job is that things you learn from here are good for your resume in the future.

Very eventful

Helping people and families for their needs at home or even businesses feels good. Hard work but great place. Training is important must have computer knowledge.

Great place to work. A little more boring in the mornings, no customers and you’re just standing so it makes the time go by slower. It was a fair decent pay

Fine place, but high turnover rate

The people you work with one month probably won't be the ones you work with later, but it's a standard retail position otherwise.Can't say anything about management since there's a good chance that's changed too

Great place

Manageable workload, great staff and good products. Good benefits, time off and really nice customers. Hours of operation weren't bad, a few late nights, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Coworkers are great, not management

Coworkers are great fun people to work with, however management would belittle you and question your intelligence, the do not like it when you question them.

Just want you to force credit down throats . And a normal schedule isn’t a thing. Hope you like starting work at 12 and not seeing your kids before bed or before school. Perfect college or retirement job

Informative and fun working with plants. Great to work outside (most of the time)

I truly loved the job itself. Outside Lawn & Garden. Merchandising all live plants. I was able to learn new ways to insure the health and beauty of a great variety of indoor, outdoor, flowers vegetables, shrubs and trees. I enjoyed helping customers with this as they would return to the store and tell me of their success. I had built a nice group of regulars. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the actual work environment. Scheduled hours do not sync with amount of work to be accomplished. Definitely a shortage of required personnel. Expectations are full time accomplishments in part time hours. The stress spreads like wildfires. Management hasn't got a clue, nor a desire how to address this in a healthy or helpful manner. They seem to focus on how to mistreat and harass the good employees who actually do the work. This is an unfortunate across the board situation.


Just increased pay


Hostile & Discriminatory work environment, Major non transparency issues, No legal recourse against age discrimination

Get used to change!

Lowe's is a well-respected and recognized household name. When I first started a few years back the company was thriving. We went through a restructure, and then another a year later, and then another just recently. Business is doing good but things keep getting shaken up and morale is at an all-time low. Lots of departures and outsourcing occurring throughout multiple levels of the business. Pay is competitive, benefits are alright, and overall the company provides for its employees but you need to be willing to look past corporate greed and frequent org changes.

Okay for extra cash

Took the job in the summer between semesters in college to get some extra pocket change. The work environment was okay and coworkers were nice. Though consistently understaffed and even days without any manager to open the cage or help with things that required keys or higher approval.

Decent company, depends on your manager

Good company to work for. Like most places a good or a bad manager changes everything. I was lucky to have good managers that made the job worth it. Until I found something better

Cool place to work pay should be higher due to lack of commission but good starter sales career. Just be ready to deal with constant deadlines and stressful jobs/

It did the job

Just worked over the summer and it was perfect for my schedule. Switched to 4/10s right after getting hired and that was great. Loved working with the night manager but some of the other crew were toxic

Flexible work schedule

They were very flexible with my schedule. They work really well with my school schedule. the managers really understood that you have a life outside of work.

Management really didn’t still to the word they gave you as far as your shifts and the availability that you give when you are hired they do not pay it any attention

Good pay but poor management

Had some of the best coworkers but management and corporate constantly take two steps back. Classic care more about profit then the work situation. I have friends that still work there and said it’s been gotten worse.

Wishy-washy management

Good benefits. Management is never on the same page; some managers are unknowledgeable. Other members of management create their own rules. Staff support is low at times.
