Paint Associate
in Flowood, MS

"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!"
