A very good place to work with nice benefits
Sales Specialist (Mill Work) (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYFebruary 14, 2018
Lowes is a great company to work with lots of benefits. Great management and staff. It feels like home away from home. Everyday there is something exciting that I learn and to serve my customers leaves me with a great sense of achievement. I serve for the love of what I do and I do it to the best of my ability.

Hellish Nightmare
CSA - Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Panama City, FLFebruary 14, 2018
No accountability of employees. Lack of leadership from majority of management. General overall atmosphere of store is negative with opportunities for advancement being very limited.

Work here if you wanna be a slave
Loader/Cashier/Stocker (Current Employee) –  Pickering, ONFebruary 13, 2018
These people will work you till you bleed if you can. Avoid this place. Management is terrible, they have no regard or respect for the position that you were hired in and have no problem working you for minimum wage.

Simple and easy if you get the right job
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) –  Prince George, VAFebruary 13, 2018
Days at work can be either good or bad depending on customers
Management is good
The workplace can be a bit overwhelming when the store gets busy but can also be very empty and relaxing when the evenings come about or at slower times in the year
The hardest part about the job would be the workload that can come about from being extremely busy from customers and trying to manage the work load from that
The most enjoyable part of the job is how slow and simple things can get either at the end of certain days (example being weekdays) or during slower times of the year such as winter or times with bad weather

Good company
Live Nursery Specialist (Current Employee) –  Waynesville, NCFebruary 13, 2018
Good company, busy, busy. You'll definitely work hard but there is definitely room for advancement if you're willing to work. Management is a little absent and could definitely be more involved but alone time is never a problem since there is plenty to do.

Great Actors
Sales Floor Associate (Former Employee) –  Milton, ONFebruary 13, 2018
Management does a wonderful job of ensuring all employees hear what they want to hear, regardless of how factual it may be. In low season, when the store is quiet, they'll tell you hours are getting significantly cut due to low store traffic, while also hosting job fairs and "National Hiring Day" at the same time, while also promising you your hours will start to increase now.

The vast majority of staff have devoted their life to retail so management puts them over anybody who is just looking to make some money while pursuing a different career path, regardless of how long you've been working there. I often found managers didn't communicate between themselves and consistency is a foreign word here.
Pros
Large/Busy store looks great on resumes
Cons
Unstable hours, No Job Security

Decent pay for a retail job
FRONT END SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Warwick, RIFebruary 13, 2018
Lowe's is a good place to work while in school, or as a filler job. The pay is good and the health insurance is decent. I do not recommend working at Lowes long term, there is no room for growth and positions are given because of who you know, not by experience or worth ethic.
Pros
Health Insurance is good
Cons
Rotating schedules, Have to work weekends, No reward for hardwork.

Rudderless company
Sales Specialist (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAFebruary 13, 2018
Lowe's is a largely leaderless organization that does not value creative thinking or new approaches to longtime problems. Rather, Lowe's retains a cookie-cutter demeanor that hampers its day-to-day employees.

Most stores follow a conventional retail model, but the interpretation of those structures is largely left up to on-site management. This creates difficulty, as even within the same chain, stores are run in universally different ways, often to the detriment of the employees.

Until Lowe's embraces a better way of doing things, it will continue to play catch-up against its largest rival, Home Depot.
Pros
Decent pay, reasonable profit sharing opportunities
Cons
Disorganized leadership, out-of-date technology

the overall team spirit concept was openly not there
Receiving and Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) –  Garysburg, NCFebruary 13, 2018
the job work was very normal and physically acceptable as you became more aware of the work process...the only downside to the job was the amount of emphasis put on doing the job in a fast paced manner which at times would become unsafe or not as safety conscious as employees needed to be to perform effectively and safely.

Loved the work/life balance; management leave much to be desired
Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mansfield, PAFebruary 13, 2018
Was able to learn a lot - those who like to work and do it well are often rewarded. Management seems to not have clear sales plan or is unable to clue all employees into said plan. Customers were often taken care of and there were defiantly ways to appeal to them. Culture is so-so, some make it a permanent career while others come and go. Benefits were decent to good; hard to fin these days.
Pros
good benefits, time off/vacation time plentiful if used properly, pays well, nice balance between manual and desk work.
Cons
Management isn't always clear and upfront
