Customer Service/ Cashier/Kids Clinic (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – March 18, 2018
At first lived where I worked then, they go through managers and human resource and employees like crazy. If you know what your doing they get rid of you. If your just there they keep you because it's cheaper.
Loved that they worked with you if your kids had disabilities
Even with doctors notes, eventually youll get wrote up, terminated, or asked to resign
Useless, lazy managers and department “workers”, sexism
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ME – March 16, 2018
Managers can not ever be bothered to do anything. They are just so busy hiding or online shopping to get out of the office. The people with seniority wander doing nothing all day. Finding anybody to do anything is stupidly hard. The install sales guy is blatantly lazy, the commercial sales people won’t help a customer in front of them. There’s a few who nap at their work station.
Going to work before dawn, never seeing a weekend off
Better than a lot of retail places but doesn't understand how to motivate workers.
Customer Service/Cashier (Current Employee) – Ballwin, MO – March 5, 2018
A typical day at work as a Customer Service Associate/Cashier is being in the same small area standing and scanning items for customers. During this time you'll experience no customers at all and then 20 of them appear at once. Your coworkers will get stuck on one and the backup you called for will be ignored until the line gets to a manageable level. Not really ignored but we have nowhere to pull another cashier from and the managers don't want to help. The floor associates don't want to help either as you beg for a backup loader to help. During your shift you'll want a break from everything however when you ask for one you'll get the "you're not entitled to a break in Missouri" or "I didn't even get a break" so you'll have to just wait. Restroom breaks are mandatory so that's nice. Lunches are scattered between too early and too late in the work shift. I've learned a lot but nothing I can really say is useful, with regards to hardware everything I've learned by working at the job is less practical than just five seconds googling something. Management is pretty inefficient, you never get recognition but they'll pounce on you when you make a mistake. They're always doing something in the office but when you walk by you just see them on their phones or blankly staring at a screen or talking with 3 or more people in a circle. Workplace culture isn't bad, people on the floor seem to think that people working the registers are lazy and vice versa but that's because neither of us understand each other's job. It can be frustrating because we're usually the customers outlet formore... frustration because we are suppose to enforce policy and they couldn't actually find a floor associate to get help from. Hardest part of the job would be repetitiveness that comes with the job itself, without much change it really makes it hard for you to enjoy the job. I end up just mentally checking out and going throughout the workday. The most enjoyable part of the job is the other associates, not all of them though. I've had my fair share of people who have made my day and people who have tried to ruin it. You have some bitter people but for the most part they're a lot of good people with a sense of humor.less
Occasionally free food
Barely any breaks, preventative healthcare, understaffed, no support network

Lowe's is a great place to work. The management, they give frequent raises, and give you many opportunities to ove up in the company. For example, I started as a cashier, and as I mastered that I was asked to help in lawn and garden, and promoted to customer service desk, frequent raises.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Bloomfield Township, MI – February 21, 2018
I liked a lot of things about working at Lowe's. First of all, I liked the people I worked with and worked for. Secondly, I learned a lot. In addition to learning how to run a register, I got to learn how to use a forklift, a pallet jack, and cleaning equipment. Lastly, I liked the customers. They were always very kind and loyal to us.

A normal day begins by clocking in near the tools section and proceeds to checking in with your manager to find out what your target area that you'll be working in. Working cashiering I'd head to the front end and check the list for which register I'm on and then continue my day from there helping customers get checked out as needed.
the place is great place to start the only thing is that management can be very annoying at times. nothing is really organized in the store theirs constantly no coverage at any times which forces you to cover multiple departments and can be become very stressful. but in overall it was a good experience.
