To preface, I'm currently employed at a Lowe's and will be transferring to another store in a few weeks (had a phone interview, waiting for a call back). This time of year, we all have very little vacation time accrued. After speaking with my ASM, I... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Lowe's Cos.
I was axed last year when Lowe’s decided to rid themselves of Loss Prevention. I was pretty ticked off about it but in retrospect it was a blessing in disguise. Severance, unemployment and now kicking back watching all of this unfold at Lowe’s... — read more

Lowe's has another Show planned to roll out Saturday. Marvin is going to give the false appearance Lowe's cares and is complying with State Covid-19 Orders. The company plan is to limit the stores to 500 customers! When 10 exit, then 10 more will... — read more
I HIGHLY SUGGEST THAT IF YOU ARE HIGH RISK AND YOUR MANAGER IS GIVING YOU A HARD TIME FILING FOR LEAVE THAT YOU FILE A COMPLAINT WITH YOUR LOCAL HUMAN RIGHTS AND LABOR BOARD. I AM CONFIDENT THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR WILL NOT BE TOELRATED AND PEOPLE WILL... — read more

We are putting out black friday sales and signage. Despite the pandemic going on Marvin thinks this is somehow still appropriate. What is wrong with our business and our people that run it. Our nation is nearly hitting 200000 people with this virus... — read more
Just read the HD board. They are angry at Lowe's because they are taking the necessary (obvious) precautions to protect their associates and customers, and have CALLED OUT Lowe's for basically operating the business as usual, and even trying to... — read more
Marv needs to start doing the curbside thing. This is getting out of hand quick. Lives are at risk here.
I would suggest calling ABC News in New York, CNN in Atlanta, or 60 Minutes at CBS in New York, or go on filmmaker Michael Moore’s Facebook and post a video message to him, he made the Films “Roger and Me”, and “Bowling for Columbine”, that would... — read more
Is anyone else completely appalled that Lowe's is still running this spring black Friday ad? They have 2 day only IN STORE ONLY doorbusters that they seem to be okay doing when we are suppose to be "social distancing". I don't understand how no one... — read more
It’s about time somebody stands up and puts a limit on number of customers that can be in a Lowe’s store during this pandemic .... https://www.al.com/coronavirus/2020/03/mobile-cracks-down-on-crowded-big-box-retail-stores.html
So we associates are the ones dealing with thousands of customers on a daily basis, and exposing ourselves potentially to COVID-19. Instead of the company trying to look out for everyone's safety like they claim, they're only interested in the profit... — read more
That’s right, Walmart will start taking employees' temperatures and let them wear masks when they report to work. HD is limiting stores to 100 customers and only allowing 10 to enter at a time. 10 leaves store then 10 is allowed in... — read more
Complaining that the Hepastat was $22.00 a bottle, "it will hurt the bottom line" I got it all on video. It goes to the 6 o'clock news in Tampa when I get fired. for speaking up. I figure $5-15 million in PR damage control, way to go... — read more
Question if a store manager came in the break room while im on lunch making fun of you saying how your going to be so sore because all the work he had planned. Should I take this to HR?
The next step would be to contact your local news and complain about the stores not limiting the amount of customer that come into the store.
Lowe’s is hiring 30,000 workers ?????????????? Explain this.... Work here for $11.00 hours stressed out, exposed. or, sit home on Unemployment on Florida unemployment for $880.00 a week with every Government Perk, for 4 months NO Questions... — read more

Did anyone else get shorted in their hazard pay from Lowes. Full time was supposed to received 300.00. I received 110. Plus has anyone's Lowes discouraged people from coming in and DYI or gardening shopping. I can't take it if another person tells me... — read more
I don’t know about the rest of you, but after this week, there was a serious darkness that descended on our store. That weekend was so out of control, way too many people, everyone being an a–hole to each other, customers almost getting in a fight... — read more
One way in, one way out. Strictly enforced. Here is something you can copy Marvin.
I'm just wondering... If you take the leave of absence do you still get the 150$ or 300$ ? Or if you received the money and then take a leave of absence do you have to pay the money back
The lack of protection and regard for employee safety, and indirectly our families is horrid!!!!!!! We know what our lives are worth to corporate, $300.00 F/T, $150.00 P/T. People are NOT buying Essential items, they're browsing and buying... — read more
I just heard that multiple stores employees are at risk due to someone in the store testing positive. Anyone else hear about this in their area?
Just wait until a Lowe’s associate dies or infects customers that end up dying. While it is horrific to state this it is only a matter of time before this happens. There will be a litany of multi million dollar lawsuits against this company for... — read more
The Ky Governor, Andy Beshear said yesterday that “Home Centers will be the next businesses to be ordered to shut down, if social distancing guidelines are not followed.” This was said after he received “dozens of reports regarding the crowds of... — read more
CEO Marvin Ellison made over $7.3 million in 2019, while the average Loews associate made $11 per hour in 2019. He also is the one who required stores to be open during the COVID 19 crisis. Employees need to stand up to this careless sleeze.
Marvin says “we’re all in this together”. How are we in this together if you are all sitting at home, safe? You are brewing for a massive walk out. We need you to prove that our stores are safe to work in. I, and others, demand that each of... — read more
Our store has done nearly 700k in 2 days. Understaffed and 100s if not thousands of people passing through. When does our country say enough is enough.
https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/25/lowes-ceo-marvin-ellison-says-sales-have-been-up-during-coronavirus-pandemic.html It's about $$$. Not our safety. We need to stand up and demand accountability. A better, cleaner, safer work environment to start... — read more
Unless these stores take drastic action like not allowing customers in store, curbside pick up only. These stores are filled with people browsing and buying non-essential items. Neither business has any essential items left such as masks, lysol... — read more
Anyone else getting a skin rash from the cleaning products we have to use now daily to clean the store?
Any other stores having managers ask what other departments sales specialists would be interested in?
From what has been said here and what friends at stores are telling me - Lowes is not following any guidelines to prevent the spread of CoVid19. There is little or no social distancing in stores. There is no soap or paper towels in the bathrooms. ... — read more
