Way back when, if a customer complained about an associate, the incident was brought up along with the customer name and the associate's side would be explained. Fair enough. Now the associate is not given the name, and with the amount of customers... read more

NOVEMBER 14, 2017 12:21 PM Lowe’s is looking to fill about 400 full-time jobs at its corporate offices in Mooresville and Wilkesboro. In a statement Tuesday, the home improvement retailer said it is hiring more than 200 full-time employees for its... read more
At a recent store meeting, the regional marketing scumbag...sorry, I mean manager, told us to about that stupid IMPACT propaganda and how we had to step up our customer service. Otherwise, she said, people would start using Amazon more. Start! They... read more
I applied for an ASM support job and have an interview coming up. Is this job going to be cut in the near future?
Lowes, ticker symbol LOW, should concede to Amazon. LOW is going to fall into that business model at the expense of the walk in customer. If you come in the store, you are lowering yourself as a priority, while at the same time becoming the focus for... read more
this website is bogus.
Now, let's try to predict if we might have job cuts in Mooresville.
what did all you people get your free donuts and bagels at your store meetings and everyone is nicely pacified for the summer?
I was a Sales Specialist, the only one in flooring riding very hard for 9 months. I come back from vacation and hauled into the office and told I'm being let go to "poor job performance ". Really. Consistent top 25 performer in my region on track for... read more

All is very good
Yeah, it's a fun little tactic called "false overages". Essentially, the inventory manager has a running number that shows how much money in inventory you are short or over, so the store manager and LPOSM are constantly updated on how much inventory... read more
Spend time with family & friends or spend time at Lowe's? Lowe's is the "family" you hope you never see again.
So, the "new" hr manager came in and immediately my corporate rotation became simply a guideline and I previously closed 5x a month and now 2-3x that. Because the store will not hire additional employees, I guess the coverage for the store for my... read more
We just finished our inventory, and kinda odd the numbers don't add up. We are missing a lot of stuff, that the system shows we have, and I am talking big items. Maybe this is how Lowe's cheats on taxes!!!
I was recently let go as a specialist. Ever since the restructure they kept the former dept manager at that time a CSA 5 in his original department. From February on he became very hostile and my ASM let him walk all over me despite my complaints... read more
Just saw on CNBC that experts are saying that Amazon and Walmart are looking into possible acquisitions of some major retailers, with Lowe's being high up on the list. Makes sense, especially with Lowe's move into internet fulmilment.
Untold story is the thousands of department manager jobs eliminated. By giving them temp CSA5 jobs and not interviewing or hiring them for other positions, the 10,000 most experienced people in the stores are being forced to leave. The company's way... read more
It was announced, via email, that our pricing and credit coordinator was leaving (and won't be replaced). The Admin ASM will assume some of the credit duties (passing out signs and making announcements to change the signs) and the Sales ASM some of... read more
I was part of the restructuring and the other day I did an interview and was told I the job would pay this amount and I asked why it's such a big cut I was told I was going from being a specialist to being a CSA.i haven't been a specialist since... read more
Part of Niblocks comments about Service Managers. Basically saying we f#@ked up and will hire part time associates who know nothing about home improvement......In the first quarter, we identified an opportunity to drive more traffic with improved... read more
At least we are not in top 10? http://247wallst.com/special-report/2017/08/24/12-companies-laying-off-the-most-workers-in-2017/2/
Really? It is absolutely shocking that layoffs have caused disruptions in the company. “In the second quarter, comp growth was constrained as a result of disruption caused by changes to our store staffing model earlier in the year, which became more... read more
Doing details and contract builds will be going to CPO this November. Installers will send them all the details and they will do the build. Specialists will be relegated to selling in the aisles. CPO is doing great (LOL) give them more work to screw... read more

Team up, use that money and win more! Where's my gambling people!? You do realize this goes from a 90/10 lowes if it's just me and a 99/1 if it's many... let's make some money!
I Believe in one thing Lowes needs to do is make the Hardware / Tool / and Lumber Dept's together in one area so that customers and professionals don't have to run all over the store to buy what they need for doing there jobs. Also have sale person... read more
HD smells like sawdust, sweat, and lumber, but Lowe's smells like flowers and fragrant bath fixtures. HD has 15% more men shopping there - DIY is driven by men's purchases as statistics show. Is this why Lowe's will always be runner up? Lowe's s---s... read more
I feel like its happened to me what should I do?
