Co-workers are very helpful, and management tries to entertain new ideas but corporate decides what merchandise we carry. Lowe's works only with certain vendors, which I think is a good idea as being in sales there are certain options from the store, or you also have the ability to sell custom orders. Sales and customer service is part of their mantra. I also believe this is essential in being successful for repeat business. There are also quarterly bonuses if your department exceeds forecasted numbers. Working at Lowe's is a very strenuous job, up and down on ladders, lifting very heavy items, over 50 lbs. After you pass background and drug test, the 6 week training is excellent. The work culture instills a team effort, working with many different types of customers and understanding their needs can be challenging but there is always a solution. Overall, for a big box retail chain, I would give this a positive experience.
flexibility, great product lines, free lunch at high season time
they only hire part time, and now they are closing down low volume stores
