Lowes had me deceased!!

They sent a letter to The Estate of Cheryll Leone and cancelled my card. Called them to say, uh, I'm not dead and they apologized and said they would fix it but it may take 3 weeks??? Went to Lowes and checked my card at Cust Serv desk and sure enough, 0 credit balance. Clerk called and the cust serv dept told her I would have to reapply and, oh by the way, you may not get the same credit level because you would be a new customer. So not my fault but I have to be inconvenienced and they can't just reinstate the card? Long time customer gone because of poor service.

Lowes in Carson City, Nevada - Never again from Lowe's

1.0
Details
Huh?! Purchased was made on line from LOWE's. I did not purchase from a third party just to be delivered by Lowe's. Looks like it may have to do with the sales person comission. It makes it look like Carson City Lowe's employees hedge their commission against customer satisfaction And one more thing. We got a call on August 6th and were told that the item I ordered is badly damaged and it cannot be delivered. I cancelled the order. But now I cannot find this item at this price anywhere else. It is $100 more. So... because of the boondoggling jogb done by Lowe's I will now have to spend $107.60 more "Thank you" Lowe's. Atta boy!

Lowes in Carson City, Nevada - Dishwasher

1.0
Details
Ordered a Samsung dishwasher on line on 7/25/16. Website specifies "free local delivery" . OK. 2 days after I placed the order I fond out that my CC has already been charged for the amount. During this time I did not receive any calls or e-mails. I called the store 3 or 4 times until I was able to talk to a receptionist. I got transferred to Appliances and after 8 or 10 rings back to the receptionist. This went back and forth couple of times. Receptionist took my name and was told I will get a call back. Nope. I called next day and got a hold of customer service. Was told my appliance is scheduled to arrive on the 29th and I will be notified immediately. I inquired as to why my CC was already charged and was told this is the procedure when they order from the manufacturer. And I thought they are retail. No call on the 29th. I called and left a contact #. Got a call back in about 2 hours and was told the appliance arrived; but, if I want to get it quickly I should come and pick it up myself. Not funny. I opted for delivery and was told they'll not be able to deliver until 8/7/16. Again, not funny. This is the first and last time I will purchase anything form Carson City Lowe's. This is probably the worst customer service I ever encountered

You didn't purchase it from the store, you purchased it online. That is like buying it at one store and wanting it delivered by another. Things would have gone a lot smoother for you if you had actually gone to the store and made the purchase there.

Lowes in Mays Landing, New Jersey - Master Forge Outdoor Kitchen Grill

1.0
Details
I've called Lowes over 4 times and sent numerous e-mails to Master Forge without ONE call or e mail back to ask for help in replacing the piece of garbage 2,200.00 outdoor kitchen thats falling apart over the last 14 months. NO HELP FROM LOWES other than to tell ME to go to their website and get help from Master Forge. I told the Lowes representative that this doesn't make sense... "You're telling me, the customer, who paid you over $2,000.00, to contact the manufacturer as a consumer, when you, LOWES, should be doing this and its one of YOUR vendors??? I'm done with both companies, and not that it will matter to them, because they're too big and powerful. Hopefully some readers will see this and read it and know that neither one of these companies stands behind their product, and now I have to suffer for their poor consumer standards for helping the customer.

Lowes in Payson, Utah - 100% failure rate!

1.0
Details
Since May through July, we moved to a new home in Clinton, Utah and we have many home-improvement projects so we very often to go the Lowes in Clinton to purchase items for said project. We have had trouble with some items purchased, because they were missing parts and having to go back to repurchase or get new parts. The worst thing though, was when we went to purchase paint from that store. We had to to to the store and get paint on 3 separate occasion, and each time we had to come back a second time to get the paint fixed. That is a 100% failure rate from the paint department. We are very disappointed. We went to get a paint color that was available in store called desert fortress. The first time we got a sample and it was way lighter than what was on the card. So we went back to have them fix it and they said next time when you come in, just tell them to add 50% more color. He wrote it on the side of the sample for us. The second time we went in, we needed 5 gallons of paint, and we brought the sample in, gave very specific instructions to the gentleman working at the paint counter to add 50% color. He nodded and said ok. We came home and was about to paint and found out that it was too light, like the sample was the first time. We went back with a FULL 5 gallon of paint and had them fix it. This is the fourth time we've been in the store just for paint and each time there's at least a 15 minute wait. The third time we went to the store to get 3 gallons of the same paint, we were greeted by a younger woman, we again gave her very specific instruction, mentioned that we have had to come back a lot to get the paint right to please make sure it is correct. She gave me this annoyed look like I am an *** for telling her too specific instructions, like hey! I got this! You worry too much. We walked out with 3 different cans of 1 gallon each of what she assured us was the correct color. We painted our vaulted bedroom with the first can of paint which was the correct color. Great! We were so excited, hey she did know what she was doing after all. We started painting late Friday afternoon after work, hoping to get everything done that night. By this time we had painted a couple of hours each day after work and almost all day on the weekend to get the whole house done. We finished the first coat of paint when it got a little bit darker. We opened a SECOND can of paint by the second coat. We noticed that the paint was a bit lighter when it went on, but the Desert Fortress paint goes on lighter and dries the correct color. So we went ahead and painted the second coat, tired but excited our big project is coming to an end. We kept painting, by the time we got two walls and the area close to the ceiling done we decided to hook our lights up since the paint isn’t drying right. And what do we know? The 2nd and 3rd paint can had the exact same color as the very first sample, which was at least 2 shades lighter than what Desert Fortress was supposed to be. By this time, it was 9:15 pm, and the store closes at 10, covered in paint, we decided there is not enough time to clean up and change and then go the store and wait for the paint to be made. So we went as we were, in our painting clothes, speckled with paint. We brought back 1 full can of paint, and one 2/3 full. We went to the paint counter and asked to talk to the manager. It took 5 to 10 minutes for the associate at the paint counter to talk to his manager and for her to come and talk to us. She looked at us like we were hobos and as we explained to her this is the 6th time we had to come back to the store to get paint. If we have to come back each time to get the correct color, that’s 100% fail rate. She looked at the labels on our paint cans tried to brush it off by saying: “These three cans had the exact same formula on it.” As if we were trying to scam them for more paint. I had to pull my phone out to show her how different the two shades look. I asked her: “What is going on? Please explain to me why we had to come back 3 out of 3 time of getting a paint color that is on a sample card that’s is in your store.” It shouldn’t be this hard right? She said: “I wasn’t there, I don’t know what happened. But on us, we will try and match the right color for you and will get you 3 gallons.” By this time, it was close to closing time and we couldn’t get through to her. She didn’t apologize so we agreed. We have to repaint THE WHOLE ROOM anyways. So three gallons should cover our bedroom and the other bedroom and we’ll be done. She told one of the associate to mix the paint for us and for them to call her to make sure the paint are correct when we pick it up. The associate at the counter matched the color for us, told us to wait another 15 minutes to get the paint. Exhausted, we just went to sit down and wait, thinking about how much time and effort we had wasted. After 15 minutes had passed, we went to the paint counter, there was THREE associates standing by idly by the mixer chatting and three paint cans on the counter. We waited patiently for a couple of minutes and no one offered us any help. So we had to ask if this was our paint cans and if we could take them. The person went to us and said sure. And we were told that they gave us a CHEAPER brand of paint because that was the “best match”. The store manager was nowhere to be seen. We walked out of the store with stares from other associates like we were lepers. Since May to July, we spend close to $2000 on various things at that particular store and were planning on getting a new fridge in a couple of months and we planned to redo our counters and carpet and was going to go to that particular store to get it. I ask you, what was done wrong on our part to make it seem like we were trying to get FREE paint? Since we brought back almost 2 cans full of paint, I think we could scrape up enough money to buy 3 cans of paint. We were disappointed by the way the store manager handled a complaint. We were embarrassed and are angry by the way we were treated: not as paying customers but as people who were looking for free things. We have some pavers that we have PAID FOR to pick up and after that we are no longer Lowes customers. We’d rather go ANYWHERE ELSE than to do business with Lowes again. We are very very unhappy with such poor customer service and having to deal with people who do not know what they are doing. We will be posting this on EVERY media page that we can get in touch with to warn people away from being treated the same way as well.

Lowes is notorious for their employees lacking proper training and in most cases the higher you go the less they actually know about the job. It does not help that they run on the "good ole boy system" so when interviewing they are now using a point system to decide on who to promote/hire and yet somehow plans are made to move people around and everyone knows who's getting which jobs before they're even posted (point system my *** Help buttons are a joke as I've had other employees tell me "oh somebody else will get it" I assure you 98% of the time all they want is to get you out the door as quickly as possible.

Please don't think that going to a department manager will help either as most of the time they bounce around hoping to cover all the departments so they move up to actual management and honestly know jack *** about whatever department they happen to be in at the time. I've watched so many them lie to customers about how to do things when they had no clue so they just winged it.

So if you want inexperienced, reluctant, eyerolling help then yeah Lowe's is your place.... if you want real help go somewhere local and talk to the old guy behind the counter who's actually done the work before.

Low pay, horrendous scheduling, having to do the jobs of two people for pay of one, never included in incentive or bonus deals....

When the corporate boys make it clear every day in every way that they consider employees to be non-human servants, some employees work only enough to meet those expectations.

You were looked at like a "leper" by the people there because you've clearly earned the reputation of the massive pain in the *** customer that no one wants to deal with.

Look in the mirror.

Lowes in Fort Wayne, Indiana - Poor to no service.

We purchased a freezer on 8-16-15. The freezer isn't even a year old and ice forming on the inside (frost free). Called Lowes about repair, they set up a service call with "their" people who are the only ones in the Ft. Wane area that handles their repair. Unknowing to me I was told that Whitsman did their service. After the third service call no one even showed up!! After talking to management again they said " we will call someone. Guess who (their service people) again1 Really? I would think after all the trouble and since it's only 11 months old something else should be done. Better employee training sure would help! Telling everyone that I know not to deal with Lowes.

Lowes - Quite possibly the worst customer service

Its unfortunate that these large retail stores just do not buy into the fact that customer service is the key. I dont mind the price, I dont mind how the store looks, parking could be awful. But if you give me good customer service I will return. I bought lawn furniture to the tune of $2000+ and payed $75 for delivery up front. I received the message yesterday that my furniture was in the store but I had to call their delivery dept to make arrangements. I spend the better part of today, almost 8 hrs, trying to get hold of some one to get delivery arranged. I called the correct store, the right dept, only to listen to the phone ring umpteen times before I got bounced from one dept to another except the one I needed. Was finally told they would call me back. The person who called back told me that I had to call delivery to get my lawn furniture delivered. I guess the IQ dropped sharply at Lowes this particular day. I finally got a hold of a manager who after taking all my info, yet again, said she would call me back. Any way heres my point. Yes I am just one customer with a complaint, easy enough to brush off right. Ignore it long enough though and those complaints start to add up. Enough momentum builds up and it becomes impossible to stop the customers from leaving. Dont believe me. There are plenty of failed businesses in North America that I can point to. Plenty of businesses now that are failing that I can point to. Where I live Lowes is already in pretty tough competition against 2 other home improvement stores. I look at the parking lot and on any given day you can plainly see that Lowes does not have the biggest share of the buying public in this area. You would think they would figure out that the only thing they have in their back pocket to battle with is customer service. Got a call back. Not the manager I talked to. This was just another wage slave telling me that I would be contacted Saturday to arrange a time for delivery on Sunday. In my opinion this isnt customer service. I wont be buying from Lowes in the future. Its a further drive for me to go to Lowes. The prices arent great, customer service is questionable. I am also pretty sure this little rant wont go anywhere. I dont care though. It just makes me feel better to get it written out somewhere. Be interesting to see if Lowes survives but I doubt it. The last retailer I had issues with customer service wise went out of business.
