Installed Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – March 26, 2016
Great place to work. Many opportunities to advance yourself into other job areas. The management at my store was fun and cared for the personnel and the company. Glad to have participated in building out store within the District from the bottom to the Top Store and each employee received $1000 bonus. I had only one complaint with a bad apple manager who was not a very nice person to the employees. I resigned because store was too far out and our great store manager moved to Winchester store.
Great employees will to help each other, nice store culture.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Elk Grove, CA – July 19, 2018
Lowes is a good company to work for if you are going to school they are flexible with your schedule and if you are looking for full time they like to hire within the company. The management is okay in the company, but in order to work here you need extensive knowledge on products for home improvement.
CUSTOMER SERVICE ASSOCIATE Il (Current Employee) – Morehead City, NC 28557 – July 18, 2018
It seems the lazy employees get away with everything, gossip like high schoolers, poor lazy management. No teamwork or communication. Management stays hidden in the office and when they have to do anything it’s an inconvenience. No appreciation for hardworking employees.
A place where though chaotic, will help you finish that project
CASHIER (Current Employee) – Nashua, NH – July 18, 2018
As a associate working at the front end, my job is mainly to cash out customers as well as work the Customer Service Desk doing returns and such. The store I work at can be quite chaotic at times, but the other staff do their best against such great odds to help each customer love where they live. I'm glad I'm part of this team, and can't wait to see it get better over time.
the store I worked at; most the people were enjoyable to work with, got along great with my manager, due to under-staffing I would often have customers asking me questions specific to whatever department I would happen to be walking through that I couldn't answer
Hardware store (Current Employee) – New Castle, DE – July 18, 2018
My typical day at Lowes was Clock in and go down to my department to see what needs to be done. There were many times when soon as you clock in and walk down to your department, already your employers had you working. The management there was not too bad at all. But they would put too much work on us to do that was unnecessary. The hardest part about that Job was dealing with Rude Customers and also employees attitudes there . The most enjoyable about Lowes is they would show their appreciation towards their employees. Especially on Holidays. Anytime the Store makes sales, they would have food such as Pizza, pasta, Hamburgers & Hotdogs, Ice cream etc for us.
appreciation surprises they would have in the breakroom
Seasonal Outside Lawn and Garden (Former Employee) – Mount Holly, NJ – July 18, 2018
This was a very fast paced job, which was expected for a seasonal summer job in the garden center. There was always something to do and the shifts flew by. Some of the management was wonderful, while other "managers" were lacking and you couldn't help but wonder how they got into their position. I loved working with the plants, since I am a hobby gardener at home. I hated that Lowe's was a much more wasteful company than I ever would've thought.
Forklift operator (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – July 18, 2018
receiving a truck is a little difficult everything is loaded from floor up and everything is unloaded by hand with the exception of pallets that are wrapped. and everything has to be unloaded before the night stockers get in.
Not well staff to get the job done so extra work falls on people there for making it a safety concern for the employees. Managers do not train people and they train people selectively instead of consistently
Shipper/Receiver (Former Employee) – North Wales, PA – July 18, 2018
Poor staffing leads to constant changing hours and roles. Employees will be required to fulfill roles that they weren't hired for with no training or the benefit of the pay difference. If you want to work at place where they throw inexperienced people into positions at the expense of employees and customers, this is the job for you.
Side note: One day we had a bunch of call outs. I was told to be on register for my whole shift. During my shift, management had to come to the register because of pricing disputes and missing UPC's. Three times in that one day a customer remarked something along the line of "I am sorry you have to work with that guy"...These were simple issues that no one was to blame for but the attitude shown to the customer and myself was HORRIBLE.
Poor management, disappointing hours and shift changes, luck of the draw responsibilities, bad attitudes from management.
Sales Associate in paint (Former Employee) – Glenmont, NY – July 18, 2018
The story I worked at hire people that did nothing, managers there never on the same page so nothing was consistent. I did not got treated good when I worked there and managers did not care to help the situation. My store was always under staffed so I alway got told that I would have to do others peoples job and do my job and half the time I was the only one in my department, I did not get paid enough to do other people’s job. Most of the time they got paid more then me. Over all I meat some wonderful people that I’m still friends with but other then that I did not have a good experience working at Lowe’s.
