Experience varies from store to store, but overall the benefits are good, and the pay is higher than many other retail stores. Work life balance tends to be rough, and part time employees can often be asked to pull full time hours without getting benefits.
Work life balance is not great
Worked lawn and garden and had a blast with the crew you're with, though you have a slacker in every group most of the time it is fairly easy and not hard to handle
The working environment is good, nice people, and daily challenges. Management not very good, they don’t back you up with bad customers, their culture of “the customer is always right and not loosing customers because they were wrong” it is damaging the relationship between employees and some management. They don’t promote people from inside, they rather hire an outsider unless you are a manager’s friend
No internal promotions

Thank you for your review. We encourage all associates to discuss career growth opportunities with their managers. Growth is important to us at all levels, and your manager is here to help map out any and all opportunities.
There is no one working nights besides a few of us. They don't try to get day time to work nights or anything so it's just a few of us doing huge truck loads of work and then being pushed to overwork by one of the overnight managers. Only one supervisor overnight is good while the other is 2 faced and condescending. Not a great work environment and not nearly paid enough to work this hard and be forced to stay an extra hour ontop of that. Only redeeming quality is you can listen to music and sort of chill but if you look like you are standing around even for a second your glared on and hassled for it.
Hour long break ontop of lunch
Forced to be stuck there for an hour extra not paid
Would you recommend working at your company?
Help people considering your employer make a good choice.
Not a place to work for a woman ( retail merchandising ) this is very hard labor--- i would not recommend this job for a woman they are very understanding about medical leave/issuesthe pay is not a living pay wage
good on medical leave!
Poor management from the store manager. But my department manager was awesome. She should’ve ran the store. If you want a successful and happy environment, you need a leader that brings that atmosphere. Not being employees down and make them not want to work. It’s just like life in general. Energy transfers and so does mindset. Seen some shady stuff too. If the ceo would let me, I’d do a great job in handling how they operate lol. Sheesh.
My department manager was great.

It’s an easy going job and straight forward but management is absolutely garbage that takes no consideration for their employees what so ever unless they really favor you or you’re a complete suck up.
Easy going, decent pay, and straight forward.
It's a retail job. If you can't handle fast pace environment, uptight spoiled customers, and upper management to just hide and disappear, then this isn't the place for you. The good thing flexibility and coworkers because without them you will be driven insane.
I’ve work for Lowe’s for about 4-5 years. Great benefits, great pay for most of the positions involving sales. The bonus incentive is fair too. Scheduling is an issue because you will feel like you work more than you actually enjoy life. Left the company twice because of management not being fair and having favorites. Do not trust management because they will smile in your face but talk behind your back.
Incentives, Good Pay, Great Benefits
Poor Management, bad schedules
There are just a bunch of closed-minded rednecks who are ignorantly judging the moment you step inside the store; not just customers, new workers as well. "Profit, Profit, Profit!!" for working $13 an hour at a hardware store that has no social class in society ..... You also need to greet Every Single Customer, Just in case he/she wants to steal; not because you want to be 'genuine' and deliver socially acceptable service. On & on & on ... and I have only gone through training!!!!!!!! Low-class, profiteering, ignorant-people working company. (Thus, although Coronavirus is alive and well, HHUGE preference to be jobless....)
