Topics regarding layoffs at Lowe's Cos.
Sent my son to Lowe’s to get a chain saw, bar oil and 2 cycle oil additive. I said ask someone who works there they will hook you up with the right products. Nope he stood around for 45 mins waiting for someone to help. Then the kid who looked high... — read more
Our Tampa store, They are gone in 5 days, why bother.
My job at Lowe's has been reduced to counting how many days are left until the next non-working day, which passes so quickly that I can't even get enough rest. I don’t remember the last time I had a slightly more relaxed day here. I hope to find a... — read more
PSE thinks specialists should handle his f-ups, complaints and replacement parts orders because “he doesn’t have a co-ordinator”. Give me a break! As a Millwork Specialist without a CSA in the department, and a do-nothing Dept Mgr, I make half the... — read more
I totally understand customers who decide to go somewhere else. I just wonder how many long-term and loyal customers this company loses on a monthly basis? Loyalty and customer relationship are built over the years, but it takes very little for... — read more
its going down the tubes
Does Lowe’s still have the policy where if you leave and then come back within 6 months you still retain your years of service for vacation time etc?
Stock market at the same point as a month ago but Lowe's stock down $25 a share....essentially 12%. I wonder why.
I don't plan to stay here for long, but I'm still interested in how it is possible that corporate neglects so much those on whom this company really "stands". Good employees - good company. Bad employees or no employees - bad company or no... — read more
Lowe’s keeps the stores way too hot. Customers complain, and they aren’t working in this heat fir eight hours. Mustn’t run the energy too high!
I am one of the few black guys that’s works at my store. I work in plumbing, but my male store manager is always making se-ual remarks, wants to wear a female cheerleader outfit at store meetings, and calls me “cute”. I need this job but I feel like... — read more
Why does Lowe's management think it's okay to treat employees like trash and to belittle them at every turn? No person should have to go through the treatment we undergo here daily. This place is toxic. No matter how hard you work, you will still be... — read more
Is there any information? I haven't heard anything myself.
Let's consider the facts. 90% of what Lowes sells comes from China. And Lowes is heavily vendor run. Lowes is basically a collection of thousands of vendors who source out their materials and labor in China. Take a second to think about it. Sure... — read more
Come work at our store our management doesn't follow the Lowe's policy they have their own rules and regulations we got two people that broke the rules and regulations . They will not do anything about it because we think they are playing favoritism... — read more
So our regional VP, district manager, and a whole crew of other corporate folks were in to visit today. They walked around the store, didn’t help a single customer, and made a work list several pages long. We are already at half capacity and now... — read more
At this point, nothing could keep me here anymore, not even a few dollars more. Why, because I'm sure if I got more money I would have to work under more pressure, and even now that pressure is unbearable. I have been experiencing different types... — read more
Why does management get a pass for everything but we have to be flexible and do what’s needed because of mistakes with staffing? Why can’t management be the flexible ones? Why can’t we hire managers who are not short sighted and will staff... — read more
I have made 13 years as of May we all can see the good times are gone from staffing management bonus commission etc. Wow I have decided to go in with faith part time will be good for me I have other goals and things going when its time its time don't... — read more
When I worked for Lowe’s I was so consumed with work that I became constantly fatigued. Any interests I had outside of work fell to the wayside including family and friends. I was always angry or moody because of how much was expected from me to be... — read more
So.. why is the management of stores of the fortune 44 company running around like chickens with their heads cut off...
I took the job, a little more $ than as a specialist. And after 1 week, not one person has given me any guidance of any kind. Not the store manager, no ASM ...no one.. Just clock in and go.... This origination is in shambles, to say the least. — read more
It’s not unreasonable to expect healthy and balanced conditions in our work environment. In fact - we all deserve it. No company is ever perfect but for employees to thrive and be capable of productivity those things are a huge necessity. From... — read more
I've been working here for 4 years, I have experience in retail and it's clear to me that the job here can't be easy, but lately I can't stand multitasking anymore. I am as patient as I can be because the bills have to be paid. At the same time I'm... — read more
Just wondering where all the people who predicted Lowe's downfall ever since Ellison took over are these days? I thought he was destroying Lowe's, leading it into its own demise, right? And here we are, the stock is at an all-time high with no end in... — read more
Our store had a meeting yesterday with all the Sales Specialists. They will be losing their jobs. Whether it's a quick exit with unemployment benefits or like the DM's when they were told is not decided yet. And yes, our store will be going to 1 ASM... — read more
Keep in mind Lowe's has invested over 35 billion in stock buyback. Sounds like a elevated stock price to me. When a company has to invest that much money to buy they're stock back there is a red flag somewhere. Exactly! The stock price did not... — read more
I've noticed has been widely used in Lowe's land lately... de·ba·cle /dāˈbäk(ə)l,dəˈbäk(ə)l/ noun plural noun: debacles a sudden and ignominious failure; a fiasco.
Third party delivery is terrible. A real cluster f*ck. Who thought this would work?
Customers ask “What’s your big promotions for Memorial Day”? I say, “Not much, we are out of everything!” or “You can buy two appliances and only receive one damaged”. “Check out our extensive Scratch and Dent Third Party promotions!”
Third Party Delivery: the last impression of the Lowe’s experience that is left for the customer to witness. A complete and utter disgrace. No matter what kind of service, expertise or professionalism we might give the customer in the store, it is... — read more
Get rid of third party delivery. It’s a disaster. Do it now!!!
It is not worth to report something to AR. They will always talk to the AreaHR and it will get leaked out to others who told and why. Then the SM will be very sneaky but find legal ways to retaliate. Trust me - not a good idea to call AR
I'm a specialist here in Illinois. Got me a new much better job. Will Lowe's say just go now when I give notice?
Anyone else feel like we are working ourselves to death in the understaffed, hot, stressful stores with impatient customers and no inventory to sell (Appliances)? I sell it, pull it, load it. I might have to start manufacturing the damn things too... — read more
I used to hate all the changes that have happened since the pandemic. Everyone that I worked with hated it. But now, it seems as if we’ve all gotten used to it. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing. I guess we’re just getting used to being... — read more
Just wondering....Are the specialists in your store working the registers to make their numbers. There's a couple or four here that works the registers all day two or three times a week
I always thought that we were short staffed but honestly this is RIDICULOUS. By my count we’ve lost more than 1/3 of our coworkers in less than a year and we’ve only hired a handful. I’m not sure what’s going on; why people are quitting and why we’re... — read more
I know it’s hard to believe but I really enjoy my job. I like the customers I meet and for the most part I like my coworkers. But there is just one that stands out who makes it difficult for me and I can’t understand why. I am always courteous and... — read more
