We are having trouble keeping people at our store. Can you imagine how bad it must be for them to just walk out when there is no guarantee of another job? Most of those leaving are older employees who are sick and tired of the joke that are our... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Lowe's Cos.
Share any updates you may have about Lowes Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Yet another move that will complicate our position...
Here comes the charge of the infected, acting as if nothing is going on. Restaurants and bars closed for indoor dining. Schools closing. Governors ordering restrictions on Thanksgiving gatherings. Lowe’s will be full throttle and wide open for those... — read more
My ASM just told me he has a 7 he class/ meeting today. He asked me for a copy of the dash 7 and a daily business folder along with section 5 and 8. I asked him what it was about but he couldn't tell me. Anybody heard anything?
demanding that customers wear masks, or if they won't, kick them out? ANYONE?
Have you seen the news that Home Depot intends to make pay increases for hourly workers permanent as their sales surge? The heavy activity has, however, also led Home Depot to spend $1.7 billion in temporary pay and benefits for staff working... — read more
Is anyone willing to stand up for a decent wage and REAL protection for the people who don't have the luxury of working from home?
It's not just Lowe's that does this though as it seems to be the way of the Corporate America these days. In a way we only have ourselves to blame, by not supporting local businesses and giving our money to these big conglomerates. The unfortunate... — read more
Why am I hearing about possible hour cuts? Please, somebody, tell me that's not true? Why is it even being considered? We are barely managing to get anything done as it is. And we all know we'll need more seasonal employees soon anyhow. So what's the... — read more
Have any other stores been told that we are working 4 (10hr) days the week of thanksgiving to “make up” for being off on Thanksgiving (which is a set holiday day and store is closed). Does anyone else see this as a warm up for next year (Lowe’s... — read more
The new batch of new employees some think they will change and organize the very disorganized department. They think they will be a manger because they can navigate the computer. To bad only a couple know how to do the job I sit back and watch and... — read more
I had to retire after Heath issues made it impossible to continue working at Lowe’s. Pray that you never need your LTD coverage. Lowe’s contract with Cigna is a huge scam. Lowe’s should be ashamed of themselves for offering LTD coverage from the... — read more
Big changes coming end of month for specialists., Have those resumes polished.
Marvin or the DM is really screwing Lowes up for employees. Or is it how many people they can get in and out the door to say they hired a lot during the pandemic for tax purposes. What’s the deal? How can some full time employees get Monday -Friday... — read more
I don’t know if it’s a scheduling issue or if we just don’t have the manpower but we are running on empty here. We’ve got stations and registers understaffed and with all that, what exactly am I supposed to say when customers complain? We can see... — read more
What I am about to post is strictly my opinion and nothing more. It is my belief that the "new" sales specialists bonus structure was likely concocted to throw off a potential mass exodus when the last bastions of the original commissions/SPIFFS... — read more
As I walked into work today, I was informed by an ASM and a DS (I’m also a DS) that any talk about the election even just asking if you watched the news last night is to be stopped and “treat it like union talk” this is no skewed towards one... — read more
Flooring specialists, millworker specialists are soon going bye bye. Heard from a source that the company is quite pleased with how the plumbing specialist and pros change went. Now they want double down.
The random scheduling is the way Lowes discriminates against older employees. It is rough hardly ever having two days off in a row, one weekend off every two months, closes followed by opens, four long days then a short day. Its bad enough being on... — read more
Canary in the coal mine Lol!
How lowes has fallen no regard for employees it’s all lowes or the road. Your life and needs do not matter.
WTF is up this strategy of running the store? We're barely having coverage of the store and customers aren't stopping. 300 dollars means nothing when I'm covering lumber, millwork and hardware.
We have been getting a truck everyday like it's spring all over again with 1/2 the staffing. We are getting ridiculous amounts of freight we don't need and it's stacked to the ceiling in my places. The store can't keep up, every isle is filled... — read more
Why would Lowes schedule full time employees different times with different days off? Knowing the store opens the same time every week and with the same amount of hours in the 24 hr day.
Hearing rumors that MST Green will take over merchandising and caring for the plants next year and that all service vendors will be gone?
I’ve heard our new District Manager is being very sneaky and taking photos of employees in other stores , trying to catch them off guard. He’s taking advantage of his anonymity to “blend in” like a chameleon. I find this to be very creepy and I... — read more
They treat their employees like rubbish! Lowes does not respect their employees at all!
That new culture being brought into the stores is all about managing by threats. Lowe’s used to be a fun atmosphere, and we all worked hard to achieve the goals for our store. The mood is so negative now. You can cut the tension in the air with a... — read more
The new DM in our market came into the stores wearing a wig and secretly took photos of associates and the desk areas. This is the new culture the Turtle is bringing into our markets. You can’t make this stuff up. Ridiculous!
So what do we know about it? Who will stag it? When is it coming? Is it 3rd party? Where will the area be in the store?
In Upper Midwest here , any other stores having an OSLG Halloween Drive Thru, with small area poorly decorated by outside wall?? It was actually kind of funny in a sad sort of way. Granted weather didn't help, but only a few cars stopped buy for... — read more
There is still no information about cutting hours in our store. The cuts at this time of year don’t surprise me and I don’t believe they will bypass us. Please no sarcastic comments, I need accurate information on how deep are those cuts compared to... — read more
Our Appliance warehouse is opening in Pompano Fl, December. What’s going to happen to the Delivery Coordinator?? ASMs have also said Installation office is going away along with The install Manager and coordinator, anyone know about this ? — read more
Marv and Joe are cutting hours for the rest of the fiscal year to get back ALL OF THE BONUS MONEY THEY PAID OUT!!!
Just checked my email and saw a corporate communication that today at 3PM nationwide in all time zones Joe McFarland will be delivering a special meeting called “Preparing People Leaders” at the bottom of the email it says that resources and... — read more
Guess with having to pay out all of the winning together and the heres 300 dollars forget about the salary managers additional two weeks of vacation, its time to slash hours and make that money back. This company has gone from crazy to f—ing... — read more
Was told by someone I consider a reliable source by year’s end the number of sales specialists per store will be reduced. Those that are cut will be offered CSA positions. Each SM will determine who is cut.
This is ridiculous. I think our SM forgot that it's the busiest we've ever been.
