Lowe's Informative - Worst Place To Work
SUFFOLK, VIRGINIA -- I have read several complaints about the Lowes Home Improvement concerning the consumer. But to tell the truth it goes deeper than that. It all starts with the management that does not care about it's employees. I worked for Lowes for just about a year and to tell the truth it was the worst place I have ever worked. Now I am a retired Master Firefighter for a large city and was supervisor. So I know how to deal with people and to treat employees with fairness. But Lowes is steeped in treats to employees to sexual harassment to what I would consider race discrimination to place people whom they want in positions that others apply for. In other words I have seen people told how well they did and then someone else get it due to the good ole boy net work. I have watched a store have 10 people on the floor with 6 supervisors at any given time. I have seen threats of firing and people getting fired over issues others are allowed to get away with. Do I have a gripe with Lowes. Not really for I stood up to all those who tried to beat me down for they knew I would not stand for it. I left there and went on to a much better company who treats their employees with dignity and concern. All Lowes is after is make the managers look good to get the big bonus at the end of the year. This being done while riding on the back of those who make the fat cats rich.
In closing the management in the main office needs to look back and see what made Lowes what it is. Not their sorry rear ends or the worthless store managers they hire but the man in the paint, lumber and lawn section. I recommend no one to work for Lowes.
