I would let other women know that some times the male customers are rude.

If you like the warehousing, distribution environment and maybe being able to break the glass ceiling, then you might like it. You will get burnt out with trying to make a difference and not being appreciated. I do believe it is who you know in this company and if you say 'no' once, it may hurt your career. It may have changed since I left over a year ago, but I'm not so sure. There were about 2,000 assistant managers that were let go from the stores and warehouses about a year ago and a lot went to work one day and let go without any warning. These people had worked for the company about an average of eight years.

    It wasn't as much flexible with the supervisors as with managers or team members. It seemed like the front-line supervisors were taken for granted and not appreciated, especially if you went above and beyond for the team.

    Well, I didn't stay. In the building I worked at, there was only one woman manager. There are several women supervisors, but I have never seen any women promoted to manager except one and that is the only woman manager. Also, we had to work 40 hours plus and when you needed to go to an appointment it was like pulling teeth and you had to fill out paperwork just to leave the building. I loved working with my fellow supervisors and the team members. It seemed to me that people that did less were rewarded and the people that did more were taken for granted.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I think it depends on the person. I worked for Lowe's Companies for many years and decided the way managers manage people could be much better. I wanted to be treated fairly, but wasn't. Also, there wasn't a work/life balance with the company.

I don't know if there are still any developers in their Kirkland office.

If you have to work here, try to get a job behind a counter where people can't get to you. Also look for a store with more women in management positions.

    Change the openly hostile work environment. (70% turnover rate in 3 months)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. The main office in Charlotte may be more fair, but the retail store I worked at was not good. Women were paid a much lower rate and were not promoted to higher paying levels. When the restructure was done, the only Assistant Store Manager was laid off, despite others having more disciplinary actions against them. Men were hired at higher levels and pay rates, and rampant sexual harassment by male coworkers and customers ignored by management and HR.

Lowes is an equal opportunity employer. They give jobs based on performance

Do your homework with contacts/friends working on the inside. Each team/department is different. If you end up with an awesome manager or director you could have a wonderful experience.

    6 paid / 6 unpaid

    Very antiquated policy. Must exhaust all sick time prior to being paid for short term disability. Nightmare to get straight answers from 3rd party company that handles leave.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Maternity policy is severely outdated. No straight answers can be found and each person who takes maternity leave arrived at the pay structure differently. You have to exhaust all of your sick time (minus 40 hours) before short term leave pay can start. You are only paid 6 weeks (8 if you deliver via c-section). Most teams have a very limited availability of flexible work arrangements. No onsite childcare or discount for childcare.

they're pretty good at keeping positions equal and don't discriminate against sex.

The employer itself is not bad, but customers can be very sexist towards women I. This line of work.

    Some have a lot of flexibility and others have very little. It really depends on the manager.
