We are having trouble keeping people at our store. Can you imagine how bad it must be for them to just walk out when there is no guarantee of another job? Most of those leaving are older employees who are sick and tired of the joke that are our COVID-19 protection measures. Most are not even implemented and if they are, it's a half hearted attempt at best. With fewer people and expected crowds, the next few days will truly be interesting.

No better in IST. Mooresville has shorted out staff to the point that we get little done outside of answering inbound calls. Guess it’s better to allow things to fall apart on the back end than to be proactive and coordinate projects like we are supposed to.
You're all a bunch of id–ts if you believe its a virus.
Are you at Store 581?
Make a bunch of flyers about filing for union representation demanding essential employee reimbursement and other social rights. Then just find some random lawyer in your area and post his information and some vague announcement of a upcoming meeting. Go out in the middle of the night and dump them every where near the vestibule and parking lot (be sure to mask your identity from cameras) and watch the chaos of managers come and have emergency meetings. It’s a fun way to mess with you pathetic store management
Please, some of you just need to go get another job. Keeping your job at Lowe's when you are this unhappy is not worth it. Playing the blame game isn't going to change a thing in the stores, neither is dropping a dime on your store manager or even threatening a lawsuit. Lowe's corporate office is staffed with an entire legal department. If you cannot adapt and squeeze into the mold that Lowe's is now requiring, then preserve your sanity and just leave. Believe me, you'll be glad that you did.
They need to start with the managers. When is anyone going to force them to wear masks. At ALL times?! I’m sick of them coming over to me to bark something at me and pulling their mask down to do it, and smell their terrible breath. Or a bunch of employees standing around in a tight huddle with no masks like it’s their own personal bubble. Every day when I go to get the department phone, every manager in the offices has no mask on, and they’re all crammed in there.(all day, since they are too lazy to be out on the floor). I don’t give a sh– what anybody does, but when it starts affecting my own personal health, who gives them the right!?
Before anyone says well, just go get another job, don’t be an id–t. Why should I have to get another job when they won’t follow their own protocols? That’s not my responsibility. It’s their responsibility to enforce it. Not for me to have to upend my life. They hired ME to do a job, they need to do THEIR job now.
Lowes is going to have an employee revolt soon. I've only been here for a couple of years and have never seen so much conflict and disorder in any company before. It's a miracle the company even does business to be honest. Our store has huge problems with inventory being off, people quit every week (we hire about 2-4 people each week and they usually walk out after maybe a week on the floor) and even long time employees are leaving by the droves, management doesn't even care at all and in fact seems to encourage the turnover and strife, and everything else that Lowes stores deal with which we all know too well. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a huge walkout of employees in the next couple of months, as in thousands of employees walking out on a single day. It sounds bonkers to say that but given how Lowes has behaved in the last couple of years it doesn't seem far-fetched to me.
St Joe, Mo plumbing specialist contracted the covid at Lowe’s, it’s the ONLY place this man went. He was 56 and he died yesterday of the covid, brought on bc the poor guy had to keep working in the cesspool of this pandemic! And everyone involved wore mask... riddle me that!
Preaching to the choir !!!!!
There is no protocol for the Holiday rush, starting with Black Virus Friday, for our protection. There is such a disconnect from corporate and the stores. They are all sitting all cozy, working from home, and we have filthy red necks getting in our faces with their dirty masks pulled below their big noses. Some id–ts with no mask. We need security at the front of every store enforcing mask protocols. The aisles are full again (let’s force people to walk close together). Super Spreader Friday is what it should be called.
