- Health benefits aren't bad - A lot of opportunities if you network well - Beautiful campus
- Number of VAC/HOL out of the gate (not competitive to the area) - Big company (takes a lot of time to get things done and a lot of politics) - All depends on the organization and department you're in but work/life balance was an issue for me - The commute, especially in the afternoons on 77 south2

Work life balance and having a company that truly cares about it employees rank really high in my book. The pay is very competitive and generous.
I honestly don’t have any cons that I can think of. I’m very happy working for Lowes. I plan to continue my career with Lowes and advance up the ranks.

Compensation was really good for both salary and hourly Benefits were reall good for both salaray and hourly People are great on the store level
Incompentency amongst decision makers(district and regional level) No work/life balance for senior managers (worked no less than 50 hours a week but paid for 40) Clear lack of respect The 'I know something you don't know' feeling that happens all of the time with the district level

Pay and vacation is pretty good. Good people to work with.
Starting to be more like Walmart with forcing people to work overtime on opposite shifts which is also unsafe. Open door doesn't really mean that. Intimidation and retaliation when you call out leadership. Insurance and work life balance is definitely not where it needs to be to keep turnover down.

An OK role for anyone who is just starting out as an HR Manager. Consider this job a resume builder and not much more than that.
LONG work hours and a work schedule that is not conducive to having any kind of work/life balance. Typical high turnover retail environment. One of my biggest frustrations was dealing with managers who had no sense of professionalism.

The discount was always great, plus working in the store allows you to be the first to see deals, and can possibly get things marked down further. Health insurance was pretty good.
It's been over 4 years since I worked there, and I am still getting asked by my former coworkers o come back. Management does not hold the associates accountable and now its a free for all leaving a handful of employees to do the bulk of the work. I've completely changed fields and have a work life balance that I never had when I was at Lowes.2

One of the better retail companies to work for.
It is retail so the hours can be long and not conducive to a good work life balance.1
