Was in the columbus county NC lowes everyone in the store especially garden center was on there cell phone. Rather it be phone in hand or ear piece or standing around in a group with a water hose talking.
Lowes near 170 and potentially could hit 190 before year end. I think Lowes will be losing a lot of experienced people that are still heavily in lowes stock. Of course now you can only contribute a max of 25 percent to lowes in 401k. My opinion... — read more

ASM in our store is being let go tomorrow. SUPER NICE person, great to work with, great with customers and CSA's. I'm guessing he took care of us and our dept but didn't 'manage up' as well as sometimes Corp Mgmt bs requires. What's really sad is... — read more
SM had a conference call this morning. Doubtful it’s something super big, said it would be discussed on staff Monday. Thinking probably Dress code update.
Let’s face it, the pandemic has driven the s sales numbers through the roof, and the stock numbers are at an all time high. It’s all “window dressing “. Internally the stores are extremely understaffed in all areas, and the associates are beaten... — read more

Are any other stores doing this? Was told not allowed to clock out back here. In fact this person had said no one allowed back here. So how are people supposed to get their returns? Is this a company wide thing via staff meeting or certain stores?

So..what's stopping specialists from jumping departments to fudge their numbers. A flooring specialist selling tractors or snowblowers or the plumbing guys taking fridge sales from the part-time closers. This happens quite often in our store... — read more
That didn’t take long now did it? Corporate already RAISED our Sales Per Hour Target! In some cases it’s been doubled depending on your department. Can we at least get some Vaseline to go with the new incentive program?!?!
Ok tomorrow ( 8-11-2020 ) is the day. Will the talk on here come true. This is a test to see if people really talking about. Or is it just fear mongering
Sister store in the District. Heard today that their SM got walked and new one is in place as of today. Heard the reason was low receipt survey numbers.
Anyone else missing mass amounts in the inventory

One of the worst parts of my week is listening to the smug self righteous arrogance of Joe and Bill. The disconnect between them and what is actually happening in the store is massive.
Just hired a new appliance cabinets and mill-work super and he only knows about one of those departments and got hired from MST. Why would they not hire a more qualified person for the job?
Anyone hear that there is mandatory sales specialist meeting on August 11th? We start new program on the 1st. Why wait 11 days for meeting? Thoughts?
Anyone else notice that after October it will end? Seems like a way they are phasing out The winning together Bonus without causing a uproar of unhappy associates. THOUGHTS...???
Is it fair that our new store manager that came from Target is only hiring those who worked with him at Target. He’s not giving anyone a chance in the store who has experience. Won’t even interview them, only previously employed Target employees... — read more
