Lowes - Not Respectful

The Corporate Office should to train their sales representatives to put the customer first and not themselves. All they care about is making the sale of the $10000+ whether or not the customer has a quality product or is happy with it. Horrible, the treatment I received. The color samples were not up to date and they were rude about charging my card without my knowledge causing fraud alert to go off with the bank Lowes uses. They act as though it is all my fault. No apology ever. I don't care to do business with these people again.

Lowes in Memphis, Tennessee - Lowe's and their employees

You might be wondering where all of the employees are when you walk into a Lowe's. They could be just wandering around talking with fellow employees or in their break room or on a computer in a training room playing "Lowe's Cup" on a computer set up for just that. I seldom go into the break room as I am an employee or even take one of the two 15 minute breaks you're allowed each day. I don't even take a lunch break as I feel I can't get my work done if I stop. I don't mind at all though because I do enjoy working and I have one of the most physical jobs in the store, no, THE most physical job in the store. I was written up because I didn't take a lunch break and was talked to by the same assistant manager again just yesterday, Nov. 02, 2014, for not taking a lunch break last week. I think I'm going to take both my early and late 15 minute breaks and my entire hour for lunch and then when I'm supposed to get off I am OUT of there. Regardless of how much isn't finished. I do unload trailers that bring in our merchandise and it's funny how THAT particular job is "timed". The only work in the store that is timed. I see people doing whatever they can to avoid work and that seems to be just fine with Lowe's but that ain't me. They actually want my crew to have a trailer unloaded in a certain amount of time. After we've unloaded it and take merchandise to departments, that merchandise might sit there for a day or two and in some cases even longer. Why? Those people are probably visiting others in the store. And sometimes EVEN waiting on customers. I remember one employee telling me .."don't go down to plumbing, there are customers all over the place." I immediately went down to see if I could help. Don't get me wrong there ARE some very good employees. When a manager has a morning meeting and concludes by saying, "go have fun", the majority want to do just that and the customer doesn't count as fun. So my question is "WHY time the unload when nothing else is timed", not even how long freight sits on an aisle. The store is extremely concerned with NOT going over 40 hours. I'm a part time worker so I don't have much to worry about unless of course they call me in on a day off, which I don't mind but again, if I get to work and work till I'm completed all task and I didn't take a lunch break .... WHO CARES???? ... My not taking lunch breaks was never a concern until I got close to 40 hours and then "Why don't you take lunches?" was the question I got. When I'm at home and outside working, I don't stop to eat lunch, it's just me. Anyway, I do like my job BUT we'll see what happens in the future. Any questions you can reach me at "considerwritingme@gmail.com"

It's the labor laws that require the lunch break. Lowes has to enforce the breaks required by law or be fined.

That is why you are written up when you don't take the required lunch. Where I work you'll get fired faster for not taking your lunch break or taking a short lunch than you will for being late to work.

Great Experience @ Lowes

5.0
Details
I recently remodeled my bathroom with the PSI in Kissimmee, fl. It was absolutely a smooth sailing experience. The person that sold me the remodel was very good in explaining how the program works and it was exactly as described. We had very little to do with the remodel and were not inconvenienced as we have been in the past with 2 other remodels. Their price was much better than other private contractors had quoted us including Re-Bath. I was very happy with the quality of work and I am very picky ;-) Great service experience for me and my husband. I guess it has everything to do with what location is doing the work.

Lowes in Baltimore, Maryland - Defective appliance

1.0
Details
I bought a dryer 4 months ago. I called Oct 19 to get a repair person because it had stopped working. He showed up Oct 22 without the necessary part but did tell me he had a lot of defective dryers from Lowes recently. He ordered the part which did not arrive in time for the rescheduled visit on October 28. I took off another half day of work today to meet the repair guy between 1 and 5 but at 6 I was told he would be there at about 7 pm. At this point I rescheduled with zero confidence these clowns will actually ever repair this dryer that I have had for FOUR MONTHS. I have several rental properties and have spent at least 10K a year with these guys for the last several years. and actually had planned on another 7 K in early next year. Looks like Home depot is the next stop on my list.

WOW! What a genius.

You've spent over $10,000 a year for the past few years and now have a problem and are headed for Home Depot. You do realize that Lowes didn't make the dryer don't you. The manufacturer is responsible for the warranty repair...not Lowes.

This will be true at Home Depot as well. Glad you didn't say you are headed to my store.

Lowes in Houston, Texas - Online Pumpkins for Halloween 2014

1.0
Details
Well, I was online browsing to see how much pumpkins were going for and Lowe's had medium pumpkins for $1.00 so I ordered 3 and a variety pack of some smaller pumpkins.. Well, when I went in store to pick them up after receiving NO e-mails from them; I learned they had canceled my order. No e-mail was sent out that they were canceling my order, that there was a mistake or anything; Just an "oh I'm sorry and your money should be refunded back to your account.." Yeah well I don't care if they ever have any deals or sales or anything again - I refuse to buy anything from them ever after this *** experience.

You bought pumpkin online.

And got upset when you found out they had non left.

Did you call before you placed the order?

Or do you expect a minute by minute update from the store to the website.

That is diluted to say the least.

I hope one day things click in your head when it comes to common sense.

Remember those days when people would walk through a pumpkin patch and pick the pumpkins Or at lease walk through the store and found the one they liked.

By buying them online you are throwing all personal preference out the window. And you still would of bitched if you go ugly ones.

Well, their paint department is awful , they have no system in place. I once bought two gallons of paint which were supposed to be flat.

Got it home and on the last gallon a few hours later and after I am covered in paint I found out that the second paint can was satin not flat. Which explains why the associate put his thumb on the dab of paint on the outside of the can. To dull it ya think? It's the entire experience at Lowe's that's awful.

HD is much better. People know what they are doing and seem to actually like working there. They say hello...they smile...they say thank you...

Today I was at Lowes to buy paint and the guy at the counter ignored me.

He proceeded to speak to the a woman who came over to the counter and flirt with her. She was put off by his behavior, especially when he started to lean over the counter and practically drool on her. She left and I was still standing there. He never once said hi, never said I will be with you in a moment.

Nada. Then another woman came over and he told me he was going to quickly answer her question before helping me. I could have had a question too..no? She went on at length so my wait was even longer.

Finally when he was done with her he looked at me and said "Gee, I didn't expect her question to be so long". I don't like going to this store at all, my experiences have almost always been negative.

Even one of the cashiers I have spoken to over the years told me the management there doesn't care. Imagine that ...

Lowes - Review from Etowah, Tennessee

2.6
Details
I have contracted with Lowes in Cincinnati, OH to remodel my first floor, including total kitchen remodel. At first the design group was very helpful. Then I paid for my cabinents and they sat in my house for 5 months before the work started. The day my work was to start I was told the date would be 2 weeks later. Even after scheduling 2 months out. There has only been 1-2 men working in my home at a time. I had to move out. They did not have work order for bathroom that I understood to be paid for. Lowes never paid for my granite so I lost what I picked out and had to spend time choosing again. The design person said "good news, lowes is picking up the extra granite cost, but you have to pay for the work in your bathroom" I already paid for everything. At least that wad what she said as she collected the final payment of over 40k. I have not received any appliances and the workers couldn't find them, but I paid for them back in April/May. The product is nice, but the contractor and design person are trying to rob me blind for work that was to be included in the job. They won't even start your job until it is paid in full. I have remodelled before. This is an awful experience. Please don't use Lowes for your job.

Once again A wasted trip to Lowes. I will never set foot in that store again even though Home Depot is twice as far away. Their employees are rude and unhelpful. Many of them do not know whether or what items are. And have the time I end up driving to Home Depot anyways so why bother.
