After years of store closers leaving at 10pm. the new store mo--n manager now telling workers they do not leave until 11pm. A fantastic plan to have the staff heading to the doors. Good job Sir!

In our store, the problem is not with the Assistant Store Managers or the Service Managers, it is with the Store Manager. Employee Opinion Survey is structured to protect store manager. Truthful answers merely skewer lower managers and leave the... read more
Leadership changes coming. You will see many leave because their job just was changed and they are being offered much less money. Some people cheer that hr is gone but it won’t stop there. More cuts coming. Happy new year. More info on incoming... read more
Just had a meeting and the store manager advised that the company is restructuring and were letting our in store hr manager go. The hr manager has till July of 2019. Very unfortunate situation. There is more expected restructuring to happen per my... read more
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
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
filed in Maryland State Court (Baltimore Sun) against management of 691 for reverse discrimination, ADA and racial profiling.
For us, it was the SOS we've been hearing in our daily meetings. Customer focus, keep them shelves stocked,clean store blah,blah,blah with a skeleton crew....REALLY!
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
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
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
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 .
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.

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 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
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.
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
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
When you begin to diminish your assets (employees), you begin to dissolve your corporation. Lowe's will fail.
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

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
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
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
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
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-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
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
New employee and just love the job. I am trying to learn new things. I rest some negative comments but I have a feeling I will still love my job a year from now.
Is there a new policy on how many days an employee can miss? Thanks
