This is our reality now

Yesterday I had to tell a customer that it would be about 15 minutes befor I could help him. I explained that I had 3 customers ahead of him. Two orders of paint to make and to cut 6 blinds. He said he was not going to wait, he wanted to buy a... read more

Is it true? No more Sundays off?

I have a church function to go to and was recently told that Lowe's only has to guarantee one weekend off a month that you do not automatically get an extra Sunday off of month and that if you don't like it you can find a new job.

More positions to be cut?

Is it true that we are looking at more cuts in positions across the board? There's been talk at our store lately, and I'm starting to worry we might be looking at a repeat of last year. I might be reading too much into simple store gossip as well... read more

ASMs Could Care Less

Well, it seems like the asm's could care less or basically don't give a crap. The freight-morons put stuff everywhere but never where it is supposed-to be and no one seems to follow-up and keep track of them. So, we have to clean up after them and... read more

No more nascar

Lowe's, the home improvement chain that has sponsored Jimmie Johnson since his NASCAR Cup Series debut in 2001, announced Wednesday that it won't return to the seven-time champion's car after this season. The company is leaving the sport and will not... read more

Lowe's handled this so wrong

Lowe's handled this so wrong. They kept telling people to find other positions and unless it was a position like 2 steps down or more they wouldn't consider you cause they want to reduce your salary. It's a joke. I am still a CSA 5 and have another... read more

Paid for leads

Is this happening at your store? It was mentioned in the morning meeting that Lowes is paying associates $10.00 for each lead for the PSI/PSE sales people. Not sure it is when the lead is entered or when the sale is made. They made a big deal out of... read more

Seasonal Hiring, Part Time Cuts, and Bonuses

Seasonal Hiring came to a screeching halt at our store. Even though they are still saying they are hiring, they aren't. Big banner outside hanging on the building is just for show. Totally lying to the public to make things look better then they are... read more

"Year of accountability"

Fellow service, support, and assistant management staffers! Have you lately been questioned about knowingly minuscule things that now possibly put your job in jeapordy? I was invited to speak with our store Human Resources lately, and multiple... read more

Lowe's February 2018 layoffs

Credit went today. They offered us a new position. Thanks, Lowe’s. 8 years of dedication and you just screwed me as well as the other who take on my workload with no pay increase. Any more info on yesterday's layoffs? Has anything else been hit? And... read more

The Lowe's Pit

These corporate retail giants like Lowe's, are the pit. They could care less for you, or the general public. They are number crunchers only. If you are employed by one of these brutal monsters, you will have to deal with it. It will never change, and... read more

Service Manager Training

The Service Manager Training "opportunity" is a joke. It is the same discriminatory selection as seems to be the norm with Lowes and what was discussed when they "transitioned" some department managers to service managers. Get rid of the older even... read more

Lowes Tampa

Turn over is so high, most people make no effort to remember your name or what you do. People stop showing up. Refrigerator in break room is full of food from those who quit. Could not leave fast enough.Sad. The running joke is "Lend me 10 bucks, I... read more

Lowes Tampa

10/30/18 Big meeting with Managers and District Manager...all had the look of "Death" you can see panic in there eyes....meeting was 9am to 630pm.....I expect major consolidation.

Sterling

As a lowes customer and not an employee I can say Sterling is a dirty word to me. God help me if I ask for a price adjustment or anything complex. That's an hour wait. I once had to ask a Lowes employee to call IT to fix an issue. She told me i had... read more

Lay off request

Is it possible as a part timer to ask to be laid off from Lowes for a period of 3 months, due to personal reasons. Who has the final say so???

LP's are turning on eachother

The LPs are useless at lowes. They are threatened with their job if they stop a bad guy. Apparently, the moral is so bad in the Highland, CA store that the LP threw another LP under the bus! I was told that the female LP in Highland had a... read more

One year ago tomorrow

So how are all the ex-ASM’s doing one year later? I personally found a better position. Off every weekend and no nights. I’m paid a salary and work a 42 hour work week. With monthly bonus for my sales I’m making almost the same with a fraction of the... read more

Changes

There will be less ASM's. And less specialist or they will be gone altogether. Most people that make really good money at Lowe's will be phased out. There will be many more part-timers versus full timers. Most people that shop at Lowe's walk into the... read more

Wilkesboro, 964/907

To the ones on River Road, you are all about to have a rude awakening. Once the DFC opens in Tn, a lot of jobs will be lost. From what I’ve seen with the stores, I predict people who have been with Lowes for over 20 years will be the first to get ran... read more

More call buttons anyone?

Solution for those who are unhappy or scared

It's real simple; QUIT! In California there are so many whiny cry babies. Lowes is so mean to me, they aren't family, Manager is..., SHUT UP! Its a "BUSINESS". It is designed to make money. You are NOT family. Of course they don't "CARE" about you... read more

If you need a short term job....

Lowes has a deal for you. They have a bottle in the Managers office. They get everyone in a store meeting and spin it. If it lands on you....They send you out the bull pen gate..... to be rode off into the sunset.

Do yo feel that big s---ing sound?

It's all the people running out the door with merchandise they never pay for. Lowes should just supply clean needles....Lot's of the stuff to shoot up in them....and lots of stolen merchandise to support their drug addicts habits. When a company... read more
