Decent place, good pay
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Mesquite, TXDecember 10, 2017
Managment was awful. Pay was above average. Customers are usually in a bad mood. HR was never there when you needed him. Poor structure. The company just is not the same.

A decent first job
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  York, PADecember 10, 2017
They staff as little as possible, so you are usually rushing from one customer to another, sometimes one individual would be covering three departments. They were slashing staff when I left, so it must be really hard to provide good service.

You are always standing and walking on concrete, so the job is really hard on your joints. The environment is inherently dirty and is hard on the lungs. The seasonal work is ceaseless lifting and can burn you out pretty quickly.

The pay is better than an attendant at a gas station but, the toil on your body exceeds the extra almost quarter they start you off at ($10.23 at my store). It can be a decent first job but, don't let yourself get bogged down there; it's a job position with very little future and they'll throw you to the curb when it suits them.
Pros
All the ibuprofen you can eat
Cons
hard on the body, dirty working environment

Worst place to work.
CSA/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXDecember 10, 2017
If you're a CSA or a cashier, the ASM and Service managers will treat you poorly. The pay may be good but they could careless about you. Store manager is terrible, all managers are young and think they can run you. If you're looking for a stress free fun environment, do not work here. They do not train you and will just throw you in a department.
Pros
Pay

Stressful
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Cranberry Township, PADecember 10, 2017
When I first started at Lowes it was a great place to work with great people. They are now moving to 75% part time and 25% full time staffing to save on payroll. People that know what they are doing are pulled in several different directions often being over whelmed while others get away with doing quite literally nothing. Management is unprofessional and speaks poorly about associates in front of other associates.

Greeter (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYDecember 10, 2017
Honestly this job was decent for a start up but it began to get stagnant as I personally attempted to advance my position. I was making as much I as needed for life in NY

Pros
good people
Cons
gossipers

Room for improvement
LUMBER ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNDecember 10, 2017
The upper management did more delegating than assisting when it came to working, also they will believe a customer before they believe an employee in a complaint filed. upper management was very unhelpful the only time they would talk to you is if you were under review or they found a complaint was filed and they wouldn't tell you when it happened or what to work on. hardest part of working there was being constantly monitored and watched. The people that work with you can be good or bad it goes both ways depends on the person.
Pros
pay, flexible hours
Cons
Upper management, work expectations

Cashier (Current Employee) –  TXDecember 10, 2017
I had good and bad days but what needs to improve are the cashiers themselves. The attitude and the sass of other's are not team worthy. No team work at all.

Bad management
Head Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Lancaster, OHDecember 10, 2017
The management is very poor. The wages are decent, however, in order to get paid for what you actually know you must be a favorite. The benefits are not bad, I enjoy that.
Pros
Vacation
Cons
Hours-open then close- the open again

Great Company
Flooring Sales and Shipment Specialist (Former Employee) –  Moore, OKDecember 10, 2017
You will not have a set set schedule as a full time employee unless you get a certain job within the company. There are days you will close and open the next day. Some days are busy, others are slow. I learned so much about home improvement from my peers and management. If the contractors like you, they will teach you as well. They also watch for the hard workers and will try to recruit you. Work culture isn't bad. Most days you work your department alone and with a hour or so coverage. You will have a department you will cover down on from time to time. Cross training is a must. The work culture is amazing. You will meet wonderful people and build good connections.
Pros
benefits
Cons
30 minute lunch

Great place for students
Customer Service, Cashier, (Current Employee) –  Clovis, CADecember 10, 2017
Great for students and someone looking for a little extra income. Not much opportunity for advancement. Work schedule is very mixed so it's hard to plan regular activities in your life. Great people to work with but must be a self motivated person.

Great for students
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) –  Radford, VADecember 10, 2017
Work environment is great for students but career advancement is almost unheard of. The pay scale could really use some work. New hire employees are commonly paid more than tendered and knowledgeable employees. Also, taking on more responsibility only takes on extra work, no compensation is awarded.
Pros
Great benifits
Cons
Lack of advancement and unfair pay scale
