    I have been working at Lowe's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They pay phenomenally well. They have recently gained a new CEO and he is looking out for the company instead of lining his pockets. The dress code is relaxed and tattoos, piercings, and hair are almost a none issue (within reason).

    Cons

    It is still retail so sometimes it’s not the greatest, but I personally love my job. Their full time to part time ratio is sometimes too high so they can’t hire full time people.

    Advice to Management

    Check in more with your subordinates.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and lots of leeway to things that you need to get done. All about making your own time management while on the clock.

    Cons

    Barely any time to spend for yourself. Your entire life is Lowe's

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting from within. Only Hire externals as entry level and anyone going for management should be promoted from within.

    Lowe's is a good hardware/building materials company that provides employees with the opportunity for growth within the company. It is a good company to use as a platform to jump into the building materials/industrial market.

    Cons

    Needs to be more opportunities for climbing the career ladder at Lowe's. Need more management opportunities. Need more account management positions.

    Pros

    fellow employees, hour lunch, decent benefits

    Cons

    Pay raises do not keep up with the cost of living

    Advice to Management

    Look at who the company was in the 80/ 90's, and get back to those basics that allowed the company to become what it is. It was a great company back then...I believe that it has lost something along the way as it grew, and it needs that back in order to make it to the next level
