"I have worked at Lowe's in Fort Wayne on Illinois Road for 5 years. This is a top notch company that cares for the employee. Encourages advancement and has a great leadership team. The store manager is a great guy as well."

"Working with Lowes in Flowood MS you should expect NOT to move up and poor management. I personally worked at Lowes in the paint department started off seasonal making 12.97 per hour (seasonal hours are cut you will only get work when they really need you). You think maybe if you work hard they will keep you and move you up. Definitely not, no matter how hard you work to keep their store looking good or whatever it’s never appreciated. I was kept on after seasonal and then moved to part-time after 4 months or so, with a raise making now $13.02! When you’re part-time expect to get your hours cut out of the blue with no warning no anything, some weeks you may 2 days on the schedule the next week you just may have 4 days. I’ve worked part-time for 8 months in the paint department with minimal hours, no option to move to full time or at least work actual part time hours (25 to 27 hours a week is part time to me). While working part-time a full-time position opened in paint and I was never told about or asked before they brought someone over from the tool dept and gave him full time as well a raise going from 13.50 to 15.00 an hour! (I know this info because the employee told me) He was only working there 5 months prior to them moving him to the paint department. I had to train a man for what should’ve been my position. Needless to say, I’m very good at my job or should I say I WAS, I was obsessed with the dept being neat I took my job too seriously some coworkers would say. I was a very hard worker I sweated day in and day out to make paint and make the dept look GREAT. A year in and no raise or guaranteed hours are ridiculous and need to mention they will hire part-time people occasionally but won’t give you any hours! Need to mention how working with the paint manager seriously affected my mental health. The way he treated me is despicable! I could go into detail on the managers there but I won’t. Overall those people DISGUST ME!"

"Simply put, great beginner job; however, I would not recommend going long term. Overall, Lowes does take pretty decent care of their associates. I had found from working there that a lot of the issues are internal and need to be continuously changing. Such as, but not limited to, the training process: When training with Lowes I had almost two days of nothing but computer training; which is fine, but then I was thrown into the field with the expectation that I would be able to fully operate without floor training. For me that was ok, but I know that my peers were not ok with it and did not appreciate the anxiety of the potential conflict due to lack of training."

"Obviously, your experience will vary a lot by store, but my experience was pretty poor. Management consistently failed in performing the logistical duties they were tasked with, like approving time off, logging sick days, etc. The store was highly disorganized and turn-over was very high. It was a challenge to conduct even the most basic of responsibilities because of the tremendous amount of hoops you would have to jump through. This usually would result in customers getting upset at you, even though you're waiting on someone else to do their part (when you shouldn't need to rely on multiple other people to unlock a gate or contact a specialist). Pay is also below industry standard. Terrible company that doesn't care about employee feedback or their associates. My fellow employees were nice and a few of the managers and my immediate supervisor were cool but overall an abysmal place to work with incompetence around every corner."

"I have worked in Lowes since June of 2020, and it has shown me how people that shop thinks, and how they navigate through the store. It seems as if we have really accomplished our jobs since our store is the most grossing store in Tennessee. The job has also done a great job of teaching me to work with a team and work towards a common goal together while everyone plays their own part. This place makes me feel as if I have a family there forever. Lowes has also shown me how much further great customer service can get me to meet my sales goal."
