I was recently called into the office by the ASM and DS to discuss why I was not taking lunch and getting overtime every week. Well of course the real answer is that we are severely understaffed and I am taking care of the customer. They told me I... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Lowe's Cos.
What Constitutes a Team? By definition a team is a distinguishable set of two or more people interacting toward a common goal with specific roles and boundaries on tasks that are interdependent and that are completed within a larger organizational... — read more
Since Marv & company took over the merit system is strictly a b-ho-e lickers game. The SM’s have a select few associates walking around with their vests covered. They look like the General of military command. Then they all rush to post their photo... — read more
Does it seem to you that if you ever had a good store manager, that he/she left very quickly and that in their place, as a rule, came a worse SM who stayed much longer. I worked in 2 stores and the same thing happened in both of them, when a good... — read more
There is a part of me that still loves my job. I love working alongside my coworkers and assisting customers. I hate the stressful environment caused by lack of staffing, mismanagement and being overworked. I’ve been working for a long time; have... — read more
Of course Lowe's has National Hiring Day and then turns around and cuts part timers hours. Why are they doing that? They must be getting tax breaks for hiring more bodies.
Time to drop the masks. Time for an announcement from corporate.
Store operations have hit an all time low...it's just pathetic! Not sure if it's just me or my store, but everything is chaotic... nothing makes sense anymore!
Luckily we have a good store manager and I don’t have a lot of complaints about him, but I was surprised that some here complain that their store managers are less competent than they are. It’s both funny and sad. How is it possible that the store... — read more
I've noticed that there hasn't been any significant news in a some time. No manager restructure, no specialist eliminations, no ridiculous policies to be implemented. Is it possible the Marv and friends are trying to stay on the down-low, are they... — read more
I'm a specialist here in Illinois. Got me a new much better job. Will Lowe's say just go now when I give notice?
There is a new DMIS in N-TX that does not know what a ‘Detail’ is! Someone please help him understand what a ‘detail’ is!
The SPH and department budgets are not based on current reality, particularly in appliances. At any given time more than 50% of the appliances on our showroom floor are out of stock and it has been like that in my market since BEFORE THE PANDEMIC... — read more
That's it. Keep raising the SPH threshold so that it's difficult to hit the numbers in Appliances. Not only that, we haven't any damn inventory to sell. Throw in the endless third party delivery complaints and damaged product. It's a real cluster... — read more
I thought it was amazing that our leadership went on the low down to give everyone the email address to forward communication to them anonymously so that they could stop all the extra double triple quadruple emails that we receive on a daily basis. ... — read more
How many locations have leadership teams that show no motivation and lack the qualities needed to inspire their employees? How many have proven to be uncaring, unmotivated, and have traits/characteristics better served outside of the retail industry?... — read more
I thought you could not get promoted to ASM in a store you were already working at...?! Just happened at my store...wtf
I’m waiting (and I’ll admit hoping) for the time when this company finally admits that this “customer centric “ system simply doesn’t work and quietly rids ourselves of this ridiculous waste of time. I’ve worked for Lowe’s for a while and I yearn... — read more
I bet the original founder of lowes would turn over if he could see how these turds in charge have decimated his once honorable and respected buisiness.
Local store: Gaming the phone system with selective holds/drops/false-transfers. Lying about services' availability. Even Corporate is participating by telling customers on the 800 line to check their available hours on the Contact Us page, for... — read more
Does anyone remember when it was difficult to get a job at Lowes? lowes could pic and choose who was best to hire. Now it seems like if you can walk in the door and are breathing you're hiredl. SAD
April 2021 Lowe’s outsourcing installation services to large National company. Goodbye to great independent contractors that have great ratings and services. Now all you get is delivery.
Went in Lowe’s to shop around needed help had to wait over an hr for help. No one knew what they were doing. Sad they will keep hiring and people will keep quiting one new hire for every 2-3 who quit. Must be the workload and the horrible scheduling... — read more
So there's a sign " $17.00/ hr" for new hires plastered at the Pro desk. This isn't sitting well with the lumber kids making $12 to 13/HR. Nice work Marvin, you dum dum...
No more install office, no more assigned "production" office coordinators, calls to the installation call center are answered by low paid employees who are just reading screens and emailing stores asking to do things.....but despite the complete... — read more
I agree with the threads on here. Sick to see this place go downhill and sabotaged like its been. What gets me is all the people you have known and worked with for double digit years, leave like the ending of the movie oceans 11. Smart no doubt, but... — read more
FB, insta, Twitter THEN THEY EMAIL THE EMPLOYEES WARNINGS. WAY TO GO MARV!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUY THE WAY, WE CAN ALWAYS TELL WHOS VIEWING OUR SITES.
I love working at Lowe's. Everyday, I walk into the Appliance Department to get inundated by pleasant, patient and considerate customer's. We have plenty of product in stock to sell. A well staffed front end is ready and willing to help pull and load... — read more
Some one needs to call the ethics hot line about Marv. Oh that's right Marv doesn't have any ethics.
3 years since the HDization was started by Hedge Fund DES. True, the wheels had come off by 2016 and the survivors are either insane or graniteheaded. The plundering, fueled by CV, is in full force. Stock awards! Think mgmt is happy w great sales?... — read more
On Marv's recent compensation "bump"?
Shop HD and work for HD! You get treated better and you will get paid the same amount of money! I worked at Lowe’s and quit when they started this scheduling thing. The new scheduling program had me working hours that I barely had a life or time to... — read more
The raises we are given actually don’t keep up with the basic cost of living that we experience. Our premiums for our insurance are definitely not limited to 3% like our raises seem to be. And most of the raises at Lowe’s aren’t even approved or... — read more
Is May 4. At the location where I’m at people are literally quitting faster than they can hire them. I’ve never seen it this bad.
You may hate me for it but I have to say it because it is true: those who are the loudest when it comes to raise are the ones who give only a minimum here. Those who really deserve a raise and don't get it, can easily find jobs in other companies... — read more
Up over 33% in 1 month on no news. What’s going on here?
99% raise... For our fearless leader...WOW... We just got an across the board of a whopping 23 cents. We bust our a$$ and get pennies.
The only thing that makes me happy lately is the end of working hours. This job still pays my bills, but it has become so depressing that all I have to look forward to is the end of working hours. Sometimes I have a feeling that time flows more... — read more
So, we fire all the assemblers two years ago and farm it out to third party. Now I am hearing that stores are actually pulling employees off the floor where they are needed to staff the departments and using to assemble product. Why are they doing... — read more
They hired a DMSM and he is running everyone into the ground. People are leaving the position. The expectations for completion of resets and not having the manpower (full staff) and being held accountable for not finishing. Constant stress and... — read more
