Lowes in Erie, Pennsylvania - Waited 20 min. for assistance, numerous workers, they were all BSing.

Wanted to make numerous purchases at Lowe's Erie Pa. upper Peach Street at 7/16/10. 11am totaling around three thousand dollars,bathroom vanity, granite top, faucet, flooring, toilet, and odds and ends, requested assistance from several staff only to be told "that's not my area" pressed the help button four times over a 20 min span, it kept on flashing, but no help arrived.Staff seemed to be too busy socializing with each other, service desk seemed not to care. My wife and I went to Home Depot where we received fast and knowledgeable assistance and made our purchase.

Helpful Hint:

Actually, the button canceling you hear at the end of the day is NOT to lower the average time. While it is true that each department in the store gets graded on average time to answer buttons (company goal is 60 seconds; my store's goal is 45 seconds), the number of button hits is also tallied up.

The more button hits you have in your department, the more it looks like you're nowhere to be found. So, if employees were hitting their own buttons, they may lower their average time by a second or two, but they would be raising their button hits as well.

This is not something they would do. The buttons are actually tested every night in order to make sure they are all operable, as batteries do wear out and sometimes the programming can be lost.

The more hits, the more it looks like you're not in your department ready to help.

The end of day button pressing is merely to test each button to make sure they all work. Batteries wear out, ya know.

I also had the experience of getting no help, so went to Home Depot and bought my washer and dryer. Also we are now waiting for Lowes to deliver a micro, oven, and dishwhr.

(I should have given HD a chan ce to match theri price) Already 2 weeks past promised date and still getting no specific date. Buy from Home Depot - their delivery was top notch.

hey just want lowes take my name off the return policy.so i can return items.I have shopping lowes for 15 year love the store on battleground greenboro,N.C.the told me to get touch with lowes. need your help,thank you

If you want service at Lowes, keep pushing the customer service button. It is on a timer and the employees have so many seconds to answer them.

The total time is tallied and averaged at the end of the day. If they go over the alloted time, they get reamed out. If you are in the store at closing time, you will hear the "help needed..." calls everywhere.

They push the buttons and immediately cancel the call, thus cutting down average response time. Lowes employees think of these buttons as the "button of death".

This will help next time you visit Lowes.

Peoplenlikr you can never be helped. You ask for help yet when the person helping you gives you an answer suddenly you know more than the associate.

Or you get mad cause you see ALL those associates that won't help you. Maybe hey have NO clue how to work plumbing. MAYBE the plumbing associate went to lunch.

Would you rather have help from someone with experience or just some lowly cashier that has NO fing clue. Grow a brain and think about *** before posting.

Lowes in Allentown, Pennsylvania - Lowe's is rude company

some of the people that work at Lowe's are very rude.they sit on the forklift and won't move when you are trying to get through the aile and when you ask for help they act like it the end of world. then when you apply for a job they won't hire you because you were terminated from your former job every one makes mistakes , I will no longer shop at Lowe's any more also prices keep going up on their products every day, how can the average person afford to buy their product in this day and age. mgw

Did you ever think that they might have extreamly strict safety regulations? If you or another customer are within ten feet of the lift it can not be moved. Also they most likely have another customer waiting on them for the product they are getting.

Perhaps you are describing yourself. Prices going up, happens everywhere, it's called inflation buddy.

Lowes in Carlisle, Pennsylvania - I HateYour Website!

I have a horrible time logging in, I tried to find out if I paid off my 6/12 promotion on time and I was told I will have an answer in 14 days...great! I can't log on and when I did get online I had a horrible time finding my way around! As a former employee this is frustrating, imagine me in customer service trying to explain this to anyone! NICE! a fine example would be Encompass Insurance...I go online, type in my account number and my zip code and BING! I am online and able to make my payment...it's fabulous! I can't wait until this bill is paid off and I can close out this account! I am obviously NOT happy...

2 days ago I spent 1900 dollars at the store and it was supposed to be ready for pickup on sat. The contractors wennd t to pick up the items and nothing was ready. Nobody would help them, They had to retreive the items themselves and load everything themselves, I have to pay them to pick stuff up, which now is more because they waited for help and nothing was ready. Ihave more stuff to buy and I don't think I'm going to Lowes I don't know employees involved. One employee did come up to them and asked them if they needed help.

Lowes in Latrobe, Pennsylvania - Veterans discounts

stores are now asking for photo IDs. these are not available only to active,retirees and those needing medical care. Millions of us vets have IDs,discharge and dd214s. Don't you trust your cashiers enough to compare these items along with drivers licence photo? I hear weird stories how this came about from store employees,fake IDs,forgories,not wanting to give vet discounts because its cutting into profits etc. Give us a break we've sure earned it.You're forcing us to go to Home Depot who gladly honors our IDs without Question maybe thats the place for us to shop.

I cannot stand when customers shove their I'D in your face, and they do it all the time. I don't need any man shoving anything in my face.

I see it. I am not blind. There are those that appreciate the discount, but the majority of them are so nasty. People do not realize what a strain this puts on us cashiers and head cashiers.

I am constantly having to run from garden to commercial sales and everywhere in between to get overrides for military. It is stressful to try to be in several places at once.

Lowes just needs to make the store 10% and call it a day. All this does is *** me, the cashier, the customer, and the customers behind them off.

This past weekend, my wife told me about the military veteran's discount at Lowe's. This was being offered in honor of Veteran's Day 2011.

Upon respectfully inquiring at the cash register about the discount, while wearing my U.S.Army jacket (only available at Military Clothing Sales), we were abruptly informed that an active duty I.D. would be the only acceptable form of "Proof of Service". They followed this up with stories of fake IDs, similar to the ones stated on this website, and with the same verbosity. Honestly, we don't demand special consideration for veteran status.

Lowe's publicly advertised & offered this discount on their website's front page.

We certainly do not appreciate being lured down there to spend our hard earned money under the pretense of honoring veterans, only to be treated so disrespectfully by this retailer's staff. Numerous employee's were contacted & became involved, because the cashiers were clueless about the discount even being offered at all, but were very confident in telling us about the fake IDs they get all the time.

I will be taking this latest experience into consideration when deciding where to take my business in the near future.

Lowes does honor military discounts. You must be active or retired for year round discounts.

All other military is honored on designated days or holidays determined by the company.

You would be surprised how many Lowes employees are in the military and do not have an issue with this policy. Sometimes people just think the world owes them.

Discounts honored by stores, are at the stores discretion, however they want to handle it is however they want to handle it.

Its their merchandise, in which they paid for. You do have the option of going to Home Depot if you are truly dissatisfied.

Not all Vets are rude, but majority do have this feeling of entitlement. They feel as if they have served their country and they are entitled to free things, discounts, etc.

We do thank you for serving your country. And we do as country offer many benefits to Vets and active military members. Unfortunately, we can't offer you a lifetime free pass, some of the benefits do have to come with restrictions and limitations.

I went to Lowe’s yesterday to get items for a weekend project and was told they no longer give a veterans discount. When I went to push my cart that had $450 of supplies asides and leave, I was told that they would go ahead and give me a discount just for today.

I noticed after check they did not give me a discount. I called Lowe’s customer relations and all I received from them was disrespect and someone from the local would be calling me…… No calls!

I am a veteran that owns a small company with an advertising budget. For the next year I will devote that budget towards advertising against Lowe’s for disrespecting military veterans until I see an ad from Lowe’s apologizing for their conduct.

so, reading the grammar and spelling errors, there's either a lot of illiterate Vets posting here or the same guy is posting in different names to agree with himself. Coming from a military family I'd have to assume the latter since most of the military types I've met are very intelligent.

Side note: The military discount at Lowe's is only for active duty/retirees. Anyone can do a single tour of service or get kicked out of the military, this is intended for those currently serving our country/those who dedicated much of their lives to this cause.

You do know that at one time the Services were not filled with "Choir Boys"... Actually, when I served many guys I spoke with at Benning during OSUT had some questionable past experiences...

If you go by the standards set forth today. In all actuality they used some down right dirty recruiting tactics to get these guys enlisted for the invasion in 03, surge in 07 etc. Now, most of them have been forced out because of guys like you... You know...

the type that never left the FOB and flew a desk for 20.... OH SNAP POG! Anyway, most of these guys you speak of either meet the above description or they were draftees (HINT) : The draft boards established for WW2, Korea and Vietnam I have heard were not too worried about ones intelligence quotient. This belief you have of military types being extremely intelligent is quite misleading.

I know for a fact I would not want you watching my six.

All vets can enroll in the VA- you may not get healthcare or qualify, but you can still enroll and get that photo ID. You should because Congress funds the VA by how many vets are enrolled- even if you don't use VA healthcare you are helping other vets who DO---so get the ID. So you spend a few hours at the Va and save enough for a few cans of paint- that means those hours at the Va earned you fifty or sixty bucks...not a bad trade.

I think those of you stating that your fellow veterans are "boo hooing" and whining about getting a discount are missing the point. The discount isn't the issue (10%...come on) but the fact that a company widely advertises that they support military veterans then rudely turns away honorably discharged veterans saying that their service isn't good enough to warrant their precious discount should be a slap in the face to ALL veterans.

They're using veterans as PR cash cows and dishonoring those that have served at the same time. What makes an active duty Army cook more important than a soldier that had his friend die in his arms in Vietnam. Or a soldier that served in Iraq if that brings it closer to home for you. Maybe a soldier that served in the current conflict spending months or even years in theater fighting the war that most active duty will never really be a part of.

After 4 years of serving they decide that they've done their part and return to the civilian life and try to start a family. But what recognition do they get? Do they get a discounted ticket to a movie, 10% off lumber to build a deck, a cheaper meal at a fast food chain, a free ticket to a theme park for them and their new family? No.

They get nothing. In the end it's not about getting discounts and free stuff. It's about honoring our veterans.

If you want to say thank you by supporting us the way we went to war to support you then honor us all equally. If you're only doing it to make yourself look good, I'd rather you didn't do anything at all.

I don't think any veterans should fee ashamed that they tried to support a business that stated they were providing a discount to veterans and they were angry that they were denied that service.

Lowe's should be ashamed that they are spending millions on advertizing stating that they support veterans when that is not actually the case. Closing a program down due to fraud on a 10% discount reflects a poorly planned program. And really, 10% is not making a huge cut into a large chain like Lowe's profits.

From these reviews it sounds like this business, like many others, is the one that is cashing in on veterans. Not only are they spending tons of money on advertizing a benefit that they do not provide, but they are also making veterans feel like criminals for trying to receive an advertized discount.

I was refused a discount this past Vererian's Day at Lows. I am a Vet of only four years of service so I guess I have no right to cry about it.

My only thought is when a store promotes something to get people into their business they should honor it even if it is only 10%.

I am also a civilian employee for the DOD and my CAC was not honored.

I guess you are only a Vet if you are retired or if you need the VA Medical services. :sigh

I work for Lowe's. The 'military discount' is only supposed to be for currently serving men and woman. That was it's intent. Corporate then decided it was okay for VA cards too. Lowe's still accepts DD214 papers on July 4th and Memorial Day.

It is ten percent people. Do you realize how many coupons there are circulating for that amount? It isn't that we are 'too ***' to read the papers. It is a privilege. Too many people took advantage of it. We don't need to give anyone any discount.

So boo hoo, go to Home Depot.

I can't believe the snivel I'm reading here from fellow vets. I put in over 24 years in the Army, and trust me, it wasn't so I could get some cheesy discount at some lumber yard.

I think you've forgotten the whole reason we chose to serve - if getting discounts and recognition is the reason, then *** me.

I'm ashamed to see what some of you are whining about here - go to a VA cemetery and you'll see the only discount we earned - a free headstone. Perhaps Red China, the former USSR and even the towel-heads get a discount at their local lumber yard - after all, their countries are SO much better - right?

I put in over 24 years in the Army. I didn't join so I could get some sort of discounts when I got out.

I'm ashamed that my fellow veterans are whining about such a "non" issue.

I think you're forgeting the whole reason we chose to serve. Go to a VA cemetery and ask those guys what they think of a lousy discount.

My husband presented his DD214 and the cashier at Lowe's very rudely refused it. So we went to Home Depot, where they not only happily accepted the DD214 as proof of my husband's veteran status, but honored a $10 off coupon we had from Lowe's.

Home Depot will be getting my business from now on. Clearly, Lowe's is not interested in offering this benefit to veterans.

well, you people without cards just screwed the system. Lowes has CANCELED all everyday discounts except for ACTIVE military.

As of June 15th, 2010

Too much fraud with the papers. Go ask and find out.

only on holidays from now on---with a photo card only !!!!

I am a 69 year old marine corp vet. I also was refused the discount because all I have is my dd214.

The closest VA clinic is 65 miles away.

Why should I have to drive that far to get an ID card for services I have never used nor intend to use? A military dependent who has never seen a military base can get an ID card and therefore a Lowe's discount but I can't.

if you are truly a vet you need to register with the va even if you do not have a current service connected disability,look at how long it took for some agent orange symptons to show up. besides all vets need to be united if we expect the va to be able to fight for us.

:) i have never had a problem with lowes honoring my service connected disability card. on the other hand Home Depot tells me they only give the discount when they run their special, like for Veterans Day.

told them I guess I should have only served one day a year then. I go to Lowes, the ones here in North texas have not had a roblem with discount, refunds or returns with or without a reciept or buy from one store return to another.

I was asked the very same question by my brother who served from 1967 to 1971 in the Air Force in SE Asia. I contacted my friend in Veterans Affairs who said unless you qualify for veterans benefits (medical discharge, retiree or low income) you cannot get an ID card.

So, The VA will not issue a GENERAL ID card and stores can chose to honor DD-214. My friend suggested

joining a veterans group like VFW and try to use your IF card from them.

Most veteran associations will only allow veterans to join. Hope that helps.

I was told that the discount is only for disabled and currently serving military. If this is not correct then the Company should put out what is right. Thanks for your time

Have in the past no problem getting my 10%by showing my DD214 military record.

Now they refuse me because the DD214 has no photo, I showed them my photo Driving license . Girl at checkout was very rude.

Your web site advertises 10% for vets

All you have to do is get a ID from the VA like i did its got your picture on it. You don't need to use there facilities just get the ID. Lowes has been great i show it they imediatly give me the 10 percent discount.

You need to grow up and show your ID. Probably they don't believe you were a veteran because they think you are younger from your behavior. They probably think you are too young to be a vetaran when they see you acting lie a six year old.

I totally agree with you. Having served our country you DO deserve a ten percent discount without question.

I think *** corporate came up with those new rules so they would save their big fat *** some more money at the expense of our veterens.

It makes me sad when I am forced to tell a veteren his id is no good without a photo. I promise the cashiers hate it too.

Lowes Cashier

Lowes in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - Lowe's pissed consumer

Yet another bill arrives and Lowe's has applied our payment to our no interest/no payment bills for next September. They have told me that I can't speak to them, they must speak to the primary card holder yet it the primary defaults, they'll come after me, go figure. They can't ever get the payments straight. They can take their card and shove it, I'm done. My brother stopped shopping there years ago. I will now shop at 84 Lumber or Home Depot. After a complaint at Home Depot about not raising our credit limit, it was adjusted immediately. And as for 84 Lumber, they are a locally owned company. I will tell 10 people and they will tell 10 people and they will tell 10 people, goodbye Lowe's.....................

I gave up on Lowe's years ago. They pulled some nonsense with 2 of my credit accounts nearly causing one of the no interest/no payment accounts to default by not appling my payments as I had asked them to.

Lowe's customer service regarding the issue was appalling.

I have gone back to the mom and pop stores. They respect my hard earned money.
