Thread regarding Lowe's Cos. layoffs

How is anybody still defending this leadership?

I woulds really like to know one thing that Marvin has done since he arrive that helped employees in any way? Not just him, but the entire leadership?

Every single move that was made was to appease the shareholders, and even all of those only provide short-term boosts.

And yet there are people who are still defending them at my store. I don't get that.

Lowe’s is not the same customer focused company. The management team at the stores is in there just to tell customers go away somewhere else if you have a problem. They are careless about help customers. Departments are empty all the times good luck if you can get help for anyone . Witness Managers asked employees to task all the time while we desperately need someone’s to help us.

Unless you have been off planet for the past decade we all know how cutting your way to profitability worked out for Sears Holding Company. While I admit the alarm bells should have possibly been going off when Lowe's first purchased Orchard Supply years ago out of bankruptcy I would have to say that by getting rid of our in-house Lowe's run delivery service in favor of a third party delivery service (XPO in my area) has cut deeply into one of the things customers favored Lowe's for and despised Home Depot for. Think our leader is convinced his way is the best and only way. Would be curious how much market research was performed asking real world loyal Lowe's customers why they shopped at Lowe's vs Home Depot BEFORE some of these changes were made. Keep waiting for the orange paint to start going on the beams. :((

There is never a shortage of stupidity. You cant force knowledge into a dumbarse anymore than forcing sight into a blind man so just let these mo–ns carry on.

"Store Level Associates hold the power, they just don't realize it."

The people at the bottom of hierarchical societies and systems always hold the power to stop things in it's tracks. The problem as ever is communication. Without a union it's just a bunch of people talking online and acting alone. We can't take advantage of our leverage if we fail to work together. And sorry but forums like this or Reddit aren't even remotely cutting it if that's the kind of unified action you're looking for.

People need to turn the tables on the corporate big wigs. Cause disruption in the work flow from the ground up. Meaning slow down on tasks, run out of time to do them, when you're downstocking do only a box an hour. When you slow things down, the SM then gets c-ap from the district and if enough store associates across multiple stores, multiple districts act eventually the company will rot from the inside.

It starts with the boots on the ground associates. Associates CAN NOT forget they are the ones that empower the corporate exec, not the other way around. Bottom up is the future. Store Associates need to learn this and grasp that concept.

Store Level Associates hold the power, they just don't realize it.

Marvin's 14 million would be better spent on employees (and not managers/supervisors) at the store level to help customers.
