Thread regarding Lowe's Cos. layoffs

45%

So, I can confirm the rumors that Lowe’s is deliberately cutting back on full time associates. I saw an email that my store manager left open on a computer in one of the offices. It was about approving some recent postings of positions in the store. In it there was a sentence about making sure that our full time percentage didn’t exceed 45%.

“ (Market HR director) is monitoring our staffing level closely to ensure that we can speak to staffing levels and to ensure that the FT percentage does not exceed 45%.”

That’s a direct quote from the email that the district talent manager sent to our store manager. So when they tell you that they aren’t keeping full time positions to a minimum, you can tell them that they are full of sh*t.

Every Retailer has a cap on FT vs PT employee's. You always run a store with goals and objectives. This includes payroll and the number of staff as well. Most retailers would even tell you they will take 2 PT's of one FT every time!

Corporate has also ordered hours cut! I overheard an ASM and SM conversation complaining to each other about it. Our store is now on a skeleton crew. No one to assist customers. No merchandise and no help. As a result our sales have taken a nose dive in the past 3 weeks.
