-Opportunity to move up if you work hard

Cons

Crazy Schedule rotations... I recently went to Millwork and now have a monthly rotation. This schedule is ridiculous. But I dont have a family, so I dont mind... yet

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Youre doing a great job (at my store anyway)
Hold lazy employees more accountable. You cant stand and talk for 8 hours each day

    I worked at Lowe's as an intern

    Pros

    Very collegial atmosphere
    Superiors treated me as a colleague, instead of a young intern
    Superiors provided many opportunities to learn about different departments
    Company has very laid-back feel
    Intern program had several great opportunities, such as Q&A session with CEO

    Cons

    Even though I was an intern, my department made it clear that there was no position for me available after I graduated from college

    I have been working at Lowe's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pros - Starting salary very generous.
    Friendly coworkers.
    Nice, big breakroom
    Cookout every 60 days without an accident
    Nice raise at 90 days and 1 year.
    10% employee discount

    Cons

    Chronic understaffing
    No appreciation from management
    Store manager incompetent, 40% approval rating
    haphazard, exhausting scheduling
    no help, ever
    Military discounts for ungrateful, demanding old jackasses every 2 minutes
    Homeowners who don't know their butt from a hole in the ground
    Abuse by hateful, classless customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop giving the military discount except on Memorial day and Veterans day (like Home Depot does)
    You're giving too much money away
    Schedule at least one person per department for every shift. You are losing so much money by pissed off customers leaving because there is no one to help them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
