Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop letting people go, provide better training, more support for LP and Receiving teams. They are the backbone of the company and stepped on at every opportunity.

What I like about the company

Company is veteran friendly and at store-level does a lot for communities.

What I dislike about the company

With the massive amount of layoffs since last year, a lot of well-deserving people were let go. Few to no SMs went by the computer algorithm provided for ASMs. Former dept mgrs stopped caring altogether and are leaving and have left in droves, especially when told they would not receive severance regardless of tenure. Shutting down rumors of layoffs and then proceeding with them has caused a lot of fear from folks at every level.

You can't be a company that claims to be a family while simultaneously getting rid of people left and right. It is absolutely disturbing. Hoping this does not continue after Niblock's retirement--otherwise prepare for an even higher turnover.

Suggestions for improvement

  • HR needs to be more active in everyday activities to prevent needless arguments or drama

What I like about the company

Managers always try to accommodate employees requests for time off and make sure they have everything needed to get their jobs done

What I dislike about the company

There is too much restructure all of the time, people are always losing their jobs but aren't offered the option of severance, just another position in the store (in many cases people chose their jobs for a reason and another job won't work with the rest of their lives)

Suggestions for improvement

  • We need to have a stricter return policy. The returns i have received is just ridiculous, and we can’t use it.. and obviously better training for the newbies or for surrounding departments.

What I like about the company

I’ve always loved the managers I’ve worked with, and the few i have not, got removed very quick. The starting pay was really good and was based off my retail experience. You have a lot of freedom on most things. It’s team-oriented. We try to make work fun by having monthly work parties or event days.

What I dislike about the company

The only problem I’ve ever had with Lowe’s is the training. There is a lack of training which results in stress, which in return makes the customers stressed! Also, the hours can suck if the scheduling manager isn’t fair about rotating.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would replace 3 manager's that keep the moral of the company down when there around and I would like the employees to have a say so on who are managers are going to be. They get to hire employees we should have a say so on who we think is right for management.

What I like about the company

They're very understanding if you have family illness or personal problems and need to take some time off they work with you. They also work with you if there's special conditions to be considered because of your health. That's one of the best reasons I love Lowe's they're very considerate to people.

What I dislike about the company

A couple of the managers need to act just a little bit considerate and human and less judgmental and Frozen. Makes employees very uncomfortable

let down

2.44

Support from management

I rarely see a manager

Teamwork

We all work together because we are the only ones we can depend on.

Freedom to work independently

As I don't see a manager I am on my own to do as I see fit.

Internal Communication

Lack of communication has always been an issue in this store.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Those of us that have been here are being replaced by newer younger people. Told that our knowledge, experience is not valued, important.

Career Development

Most of the training programs have been eliminated

Overall compensation for your work

I am expected to do everything the specialist does and get less pay.

Office / Work Environment

The employees make this a great environment to work in.

Company Image

No different than any other huge corporation anymore.

Job Security

I always thought I would have a decent job that I had worked hard to achieve. Not so, profitability for the corporate elite changed that.

What I like about the company

I absolutely loved this company for over 15 years. Then they did a restructure. Lost my position and a huge cut in pay. I love the people I work with.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of caring about the employees that have made this store what it is today.

  • I wish they had like stuff you could order healthy and the next day be sent in to you for your breaks and lunch. I also would love if they had a gym there to help us and maybe a reward for how much time you work out in there!

What I like about the company

I feel I can talk to anyone if I need help with something and I've made a lot of friends here!

What I dislike about the company

I guess with me I don't like a lot of changes but when your in this kind of company you have to to stay ahead of your competitors!

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would make it easier for employees to find a parking space and not have to park the side of the building and receive a ticket

What I like about the company

They give Christmas bonuses on your next paycheck and they also approve overtime for any amount of hours that you would like up to 32 hours

What I dislike about the company

They need to check on they employees when they are out of work for an amount of days instead of getting mad at there workers

  • The managers need to be taught how to engage with the associates and they need to learn that the associates copy them there or if they don’t engage Then the associates will not engage

What I like about the company

They allowed me to grow and apply for a position that I have a little knowledge of and gave me a chance to do the job

What I dislike about the company

The managers are not engaged at all with the associate or the customers

  • I don't even know where to begin. We use outdated technology and processes while trying to compete in areas we don't even belong in, like bulk commercial accounts. Every piece of technology they bring out is the cheapest they can find and does not work well, sometimes even making our jobs more difficult. I wish the company executives would spend a month in a store under cover, either they would be blown away or they would prove they really don't give a damn about us.

What I like about the company

I have worked my way up from temporary Cashier to an Assistant Store Manager, but I can no longer reccommend anyone else does the same. I wish I had a positive experience to talk about, but this company does not value it's employees. They create a culture where good people are afraid to call out yet the laziest among us call out incessantly with no repurcussions. It is so bad I didn't call out until I was almost passing out, turns out I was literally dying to pneumonia that collapsed my lung and was solidifying in my chest and then when I came back after 3 months out they wrote me up for attendance. They took away bonuses, comission, an amazing special order product discount (which they still made profit on) and continue to try to run a skeleton crew then bang us on customer satisfaction scores. It's not like it used to be and I would not recommend anyone start a career here anymore.

What I dislike about the company

-Lack of staffing
-Lack of hours to bring staffing in
-Emphasis on hiring part time employees who aren't invested like full time is
-Commission gone
-Bonuses are nearly impossible to get anymore since they changed the program
-Good employees are run into the ground until they quit
-Managers are utterly miserable with the work load and unrealistic expectations
-Discount program obliterated to almost nothing

  • Find a way to improve communication through out the whole store would improve for customers and employees.

What I like about the company

Ive worked there for almost 2 years. There's a lot of opportunity for hard workers. I have already moved up to a supervisor position in the short time I've been there. It's good to have a job that allow you to move up in the company and give you chances if you work hard.

What I dislike about the company

Some of the training or lack of. They are trying to implement new training programs so maybe that will change. Also the equipment is very out dated,
