I am currently a Lowes employee looking for a new job. Just found out yesterday that it is against company policy to leave the building to take a break.
If you think I am kidding you would be wrong. It is also against our company policy to chew gum or even just to carry a cell phone. The ironic thing is they REQUIRE all sales department to carry the company iPhone. One of Lowes biggest pushes is to get everyone to quit smoking and to help you quit smoking they will give you Nicorette.
Did you just catch what happened there? They are so concerned about your health that you cannot have any fresh air or get any relief from the stress of retail work and beleive it or not for some people that is smoking(I am not a smoker by the way). Now since you can't do that have a piece of gum no no wait sorry you can't do that either. SO everyone who is a stock holder sitting back thinking that Lowes would be a safe bet maybe just sit back for a moment and think about the employees that have to put up with idiocy and then maybe tell Lowes to pull their heads out of their ***!
Tell them to keep their *** stock so they will fire all of those idiots and maybe get back on the right track. Thanks for letting me vent!
