I recommended that all Department Managers start looking for work the minute that I heard the rumors about the January round of layoffs. You're foolish to stay if your a CSA5. There are no spots in the company for you to move into, at anywhere near... read more
By the way, sponsoring a major team in Sprint Cup as a major sponsor for a full season is estimated to cost between $20 and $30 million a year. Considering activation (advertising, appearances and ancillary marketing) can cost two to three times as... read more
How would you save Lowe's from the same fate as Kmart, Sears, Radio Shack, Circuit City, HH Gregg? Post your ideas here, maybe Niblock and freinds will read them and save our jobs. Everything that is posted on Bright Ideas gets shot down as already... read more

What happens when an associate gives a business card to a customer of a handyman because they can save $ instead of having lowe's install their fence?
As I ate dinner at Lowe's tonight one of the lumber associates was in the break room, out of sight of the door, leaning against the wall making travel reservations for his upcoming vacation. Our ASM for the evening spent his time in the office... read more
I read on connections that Lowe's gives Jimmie johnsons pit crew $480.00 for every race he wins. That's $480.00 for each and every pit crew member. Hey Lowe's how about you give me $480.00 for each and every PSI/PSE lead I turn in that results in a... read more
Before the department managers were let go we had leadership in the departments providing direction and guidance. Now we are directionless and everyone is doing their own thing. There's a lot of standing around talking and not much work is being... read more
Conference calls today discussing the upcoming changes. Additionally, there will be slight alterations to store management scheduling.
Just sitting in the break room, eating lunch, listening to the summer help talk about how much they are getting paid. In some cases it's more than I'm being paid. I should quit and be rehired so I can make more money. Experience means nothing to... read more
Now we know why they are hiring appliance specialists. Amazon has worked a deal with sears to sell Kenmore appliances. Lowes stock is down to 72.77 at the time of this post. down $4.04 from the close yesterday. How will lowes combat amazon? they will... read more
Heads up if you own stock in Lowes sell before Fri..LP your screwed. This will come back to bite Lowes in the Ass
Anyone get let go today?! 🤔
All we have to go on is what we are seeing with our own eyes in the Stores. As a Sales Specialist myself, I have seen the subtle changes already... they stopped the weekly Sales Specialist Meetings with the SM back in April. I no longer have any 1 to... read more
https://imgur.com/7EQcWzw Mr Damron's email sent out Company wide on Friday 7th July 2017. The original leak of information about another bout of impending job losses was posted by P--p Toast on Saturday 17th July 2017 - here >... read more
So, a guy decided to drive into a Lowe's store in Florida (not to, into it), hopped out of the car, and started to saw lumber. They had to call the police on him. It's funny but sad at the same time, as it seems to perfectly encapsulate the current... read more
Here is something to think about - there could be massive lawsuits against lowes based on Damron's email if they actually do eliminate SS positions, then a director of a corporation intentionally provide false and misleading statements to the... read more
Changes will happen July 19th. Interviews for newly created positions will be the next 2 weeks. All changes will be effective day 1 of quarter 3. Specialist will have 6 months. Which will end at the same time the DMs 12 months. HRs / LPs will have... read more
I agree that Open Door is just crap. You can't even go to HR in our store because the HR Manager is so far up our store manager's butt, it's not even funny anymore. You can't say a word to HR about anything at all or within minutes the store manager... read more
As someone who worked at a very large garden center for Plant Essentials for 4 years, i can definitely say PE is one of the most unorganized and worst places i ever held a job. They cared nothing about working with Lowes staff. Management spent most... read more
We have a good idea to believe Rick's email to us. A specialist is important to the store and I am choosing not to believe the 19th or 29th doom. The company needs us and it's in our best interests to get on with the helping of customers. After all... read more
How much inventory does your store have? Last year we had so much top stock it was difficult to find room for it. This year the top shelf of racking is bare in all departments.
What's your thoughts? Let's face it, open door is a joke and your often punished or retaliated against when you use it.
Does anyone else think that you should be compensated for being power equipment certified? Lowe's big two points is safety and customers. Being trained and efficient on power equipment should mean something right?
Don't know if anyone has looked... but... Lowes stock is Down to 76.25 (07/13) ... Three to four months ago it was above $81.. I know I sold some.. Evolving ?? hmmm.....
All of a sudden I have had 4 customers over 2 days come in and the conversation leads to their job. Leaves a union card. Hhhmmm.
I think in each area a group of CSA5 should get together to inform the country of the bull sh-- lowes is up to. It won't save your job or bring it back... it won't stop everyone from shopping at the stores. It'll give Lowes a big middle finger though... read more
I have worked for this company for 23 years and have seen good times and bad......with that said. I still love coming into the store and helping people but the management in the last 8 to 10 years has gone down. It seems as if no one in corp... read more
They hired me for seasonal which was supposed to last until the first week of August. Well, the job ended 6 weeks early and they waited until the end of my shift to tell me it was my last day! I’m a mom of 2 kids and that was really cruel to wait til... read more
I just dread going to work at Lowes anymore. From the customers that get angry because there is not enough help to lazy coworkers that disappear to inept managers that won't help with code 3's. I'm just done with Lowes and looking for a new job.
Is this long term, the I.T. layoffs affecting it or just a glitch?
People need to look at what is happening in the California stores they have already gotten rid of specialist jobs in January. But yet we are all not aware of that. NOBODY is going to run a company two different ways you all need to stop and think... read more
So what is allegedly going down on July 15th? Does someone actually have Insider information?
Lots of bad managers company wide I see. Legit our store got one of the worst. John Mounts was the devil. About 13 of us filed complaints on him and more were coming. He's psycho!
Look for the dirty vests, those are the employees that are doing the most work.
In my store we now have 5 people whose job it is to walk the store and tell associates "go help that customer." The "service managers" just do that, nothing more. Oh and they let us out the door at night. When we had department managers they would... read more
