More Lowe's stores closing?

Somebody mentioned that as soon as the OSH closings are done, we'll hear about more Lowe's stores being closed. Anybody knows if this is true? And if it is, is there any way to know your store will end up on that list? Any indicators outside of the... read more

All the pros and cons of the new CEO

Just came across this article, definitely worth reading. An insightful analysis of Marvin Ellison’s first two months as CEO, with the the good and the bad moves pointed very accurately, if you ask me. I disagree with one thing though. It’s hard for... read more

In case somebody thought we were out of the woods

We are certainly not. The downgrades apply to the likes of Macy's, Lowe's and Tiffany, but Amazon is spared, according to the report. J.C. Penney and L Brands are particularly under pressure, in light of their struggles to keep sales up, the... read more

No pay raises in 4 years

This company is a disgrace to work for that's why I'm gone. We have people at our store (#1201Chico, CA.) that have been there since it opened 17 years ago. All of them are over 55 and were told NO more raises or COLA's ever. This company needs to be... read more

OSH closures are a preview of what's to come

Retail is failing, that's obvious even to a child. I think what we are seeing with OSH is preview of what we'll see with Lowe's stores very soon if something doesn't change drastically. The cuts they've been making are saving the money in pay for the... read more

Who’s going next?

More talk about a restructure again! Who’s going this time? 1 SM for 2 stores, ASMs reduced to 1 Ops Manager, Team leads coming back.... Resetting Department Manager structure... Plenty of rumors flying after the earnings conference aired!


I have not seen the first attempt on the store level, of any technology upgrades. This is the main reason LOWE'S is always falling behind, because they drag their feet on everything .

Easy Kronos Hack

The poorly written Kronos app has been hacked into. If you understand some computer language you can hack into the program in order to change your schedule, your time worked or delete any employee you wish. If you would like I can post it here.

All Orchard Supply Hardware stores closing

Orchard Supply Hardware will permanently shut down its stores nationwide by the end of the year, according to a media report. Jackie Pardini Hartzell, the director of public relations for Orchard Supply Hardware’s parent company, Lowe’s Companies... read more

Maybe a union is a good idea

What a shame! All the stores seem like they are going through the same things... truthfully, it's time for a union. Look, the stores all going part time- too many chiefs, not enough Indians that know anything, still the same amount of freight... read more


Hearing that the HRM restructure is going to start rolling out 7-31-18. Any body else hearing this?

Anybody optimistic about the new CEO?

Anybody here actually believes that things at Lowe's will change now that the new CEO is all settled in? Some people at my store have been optimistic about it, but frankly, I think we are in for a whole bunch of same ol' same ol'. Unless he decides... read more

691 freefall

part timers leaving in droves. no one over 10 hours a week. full timers planning to leave en masse at end of august. we are all tired of doing eveyone elses jobs and just getting paid for one.

Executives shown the door

So, who else is really enjoying the fact that for once those on top who usually make the decisions to get rid of us and cut our hours are being shown the door by the new CEO? I will not lie, I am enjoying this immensely! Still not sure how this will... read more

If it weren't so sad, I would lol at the irony!

A 59 billion a year money making corporation gets a huge tax cut, buys their stocks back and lays crucial employees off. So, where is the promised Trickling Down theory in this? Our corporate wh--e politicians have sold us out and it is as simple as... read more

Lowes used to be a great company...

Lowes used to be a great company to work for but now it's all politics. I destroyed my body for Lowes and gave them all of me. When we failed EOS I was only mgr that the staff called a go to mgr and that I followed thru. But the new store mgr and I... read more

Sad but true

Our management team hides or buries their heads in a computer looking at non-work stuff. They get mad if they are asked a question. When they had the sign up for service manager training, it was a joke because they already had had picked a couple... read more

More Lowe's layoffs 2018

Hearing they may be having some layoffs next month. Possibly getting rid of some of the high paid people like ASM's. Our store was going to hire several people since we have always been short staffed but now that is on hold. Something is brewing. It... read more


Finally there is some media attention on the arbitration agreements that some of us were forced to sign by Lowe's. I know nothing will come out of this, but it's still nice to see those on top called out for questionable practices... read more

Good luck!

Just wanted to wish you all at the Lowe's good luck with your new CEO. All I can tell you is that us at JCPenney are really, really happy to be rid of him. Hopefully he will be better for you than he was for us, but I wouldn't put my money on it... read more


I'm to embarrassed to work here any longer. This is absolutely ridiculous. I'm a very dependable employee. Overall,probably the most knowledgeable. motivated and dependable employee in the store. These managers are IDIOTS. Young kids that think they... read more

change is coming

Spouse worked for JCP. Layoffs and store closings. Stores use to look nice, now they look crummy, just go to your local JCP store if you have one and tour the store. It is not the same look when it was doing better. Funny thing is people think they... read more

How long before next restructuring?

I was just wondering, how long will it be before we see next restructuring at Lowe's now that we have a new CEO? From what I've seen, he is not shy of either layoffs or closings. I'm betting those are the exact qualities that netted him this job, and... read more


Lowe’s hires JC Penny CEO. To funny...

Something has to be coming

Something has to be coming-stores of this size can't keep running like this. It's just miserable. My store is in the same shape. Irp's not getting done, same for cycle counts and down stocking. We barely get new signage up. Sometimes it's not all up... read more


Any outlook on the stocck buy sell

NIblock accepts award for Lowe's

More corporate fluff while niblock and his cronies break the back of the in-store associates all in the name of increasing the per share price at all costs. So much for the servant leadership model. Lowe's is a sad company... read more
