I have worked for lowes for over 10 years 5 of which are as a salaried manager.
The only reason I stay is for health insurance. The company is so big that Niblock doesn't know or care how people are treated in the store.
My store manager makes me work well past the 48 hour work week. Calls me on my days off all of the time, retaliates against me if I take vacation day's, example I took one vacation day to have three days off he changed my opening shift to a closing one and told me that I need to stay 3 hours past that. Now on Christmas Eve he said I have to stay til 8 pm.
He constantly takes your only weekend away from you, yet he ALWAYS gets his weekends off and never stays late.
I'm mentally exhausted.
I've been at this store 5 months and have brought in significant new pro business ( good family reputation going back to 1940's in this county) so people/ contractors trust my name. 5 months ago pro was -6% now I'm +2.5%. Yet I'm treated like a second class citizen.
It's a "boys" club. Yet I'm a woman bringing in the dough.
My other compliant is my peers the sit in the ASM office, and treat employees badly. Denying their vacation because they don't like them, and our HR Manager, she comes in late leaves early and makes faces behind associates.
