MST outside garden - Twin Falls, ID - July 15, 2021
I worked with Lowes for 7 years I started there with breast cancer. Lowes worked with me through all of my medical needs. I also needed two knee replacements, lowes paid 100% of both surgeries. Im very grateful for the medical part of the employer, however they weren't a supportive company to work with, retention, moral support and morale.

Jacksonville, FL - July 12, 2021
Management does not do their job properly. They want people below them to do their job for them. When I presented the A.S.M. with all of the papers and documents for him to fix the problem he would not do it and tried to make me do it. I talked to the district manager and show him all of the items for the issue. He said "You are correct, this is where the A.S.M. should have taken over this" and went back 2 pages of work that I had given him. I have worked a 4 different locations.

Product Service Associate - Northport, AL - June 21, 2021
Was hired to open new store and get it on its feet. Had a good job, worked hard to prove myself. Recognized by management. Good employees. Extreme focus on no overtime. I was full-time. Most struggled to get enough hours or a promotion. Management was not honest with employees, 2-faced, non-supportive, and unforgiving if mistakes were made. Not my experiences, but witnessed appalling behavior to the extent that I will not shop any Lowes'. I will drive across town to shop at Home Depot or ACE.

Working at lowes for a year and three months I figured out that it’s not what you put in , it’s what you make of it no matter how much you do for Lowe’s it’ll never be good enough you have to keep motivating yourself and making sure that you are good in every way possible. Knowing the things I know now I would do it all over again but better , working for poor management made me wish it was a better way for them to communicate. I loved getting compliments from customers and co workers because they seen how hard I worked and how good I was at my job

Sales Associate - Shawnee, KS - April 6, 2021
You know I expected this company to be different, I had already had 17 1/2 years of retail with Home Depot and I was actually excited to start. But the days are very long, some 12 hours and the pay one would expect is pretty much on par with Home Depot. I have been there a year now, and although I got a raise, it is not much. I asked for a bigger raise this time around and we'll see what happens. I do most of the physical work in my dept. I am rarely, if ever late, and I show up for work everyday, but there is a person in my dept that shows up 1/2 the time and definitely does less work than I and they make more than I do. Just not equitable.
