WE ARE LOWE'S

MY STORY

Promise O - Department Manager

I have been with Lowe's for over 3 years now and I have to say that each year gets better and better. The opportunities that have been presented to me at Lowe's have led to many successes and progress especially when you consider that I started out as a part-time employee. Lowe's has shown me not only how to better myself but help better our communities with outreach programs such as the Rink Reno and projects with Habitat For Humanity. With Lowe's, I have become a leader in a great company and I work with the best people I have ever known. Lowe's is truly a great place to work.

Corey B - Team Member - Regional Distribution Centre

Lowe's is a company that I love and am honoured to be a part of! Never Stop Improving has been a part of my everyday life since I started working with this great company.

Lowe's has changed my life in many ways. Lowe's has helped me achieve my goals for myself and my family. It's a positive work environment. I worked with a lot of great people.

Overall, working for Lowe's has been an exceptionally wonderful experience. It has given me purpose, drive and motivation. It's helped me step out of my comfort zone and has really boosted my self-esteem and confidence in more than one way.

Lowe's is a place where the sky is the limit; advancement is all around you. The opportunities for reaching your goals are limitless. I love working with Lowe's because I have "Never Stopped Improving" since the day I stepped foot into this company.

George L - IT Store Technology Analyst - Customer Support Centre

Lowe's truly is an organization offering associates the opportunity to grow.

I started at Lowe's three years ago with 25 years of experience already under my belt. Although the majority of my career was focused on software design, development & testing, Lowe's saw the value of all that experience as I accepted their challenge to embark on a new direction in IT.

The energy & passion for excellence at Lowe's is superseded only by the continuing opportunities for both career and personal growth. The support from fellow associates as well as the management team on new projects highlights true Teamwork spirit.

Corporate support of the Toastmasters club, Lowe's Speaks, reinforces Lowe's commitment to associates' personal development.

As time goes on, I continue to see that with each new challenge, Lowe's offers the support to help people achieve their goals.

Never Stop Improving is not just a tagline, it's a culture... and it's one that I feel makes Lowe's the best place to work.

Gema P - E-Commerce Operations Coordinator - Customer Support Centre

I joined Lowe's because I wanted to work for a company that had a future. The opportunities at Lowe's are endless as long as you are willing to learn and grow. I started at the York store and in my first year I went from Customer Service Associate to Cash Office to Head Cashier, with a short term project at the Customer Support Centre assisting the E-Commerce team. I have now transitioned into a permanent role as the E-Commerce Operations Coordinator and am beyond thrilled. The support Lowe's gives to their associates is remarkable.  Everyone is friendly and helpful. This is definitely a company that is growing.

Susan D - Sales Specialist

So the question is why am I so happy to work for Lowe's, well in the beginning it was a new and exciting big box retailer to Canada and after 6 years it's still new and exciting. We continue to reinvent ours selves with new and innovative products and programs to assist us in providing great customer service to grow our business and customer base.

We may be the newest in town but we are quickly taking the lead in the market place. Skills Canada and Hero's Program, giving back to our communities rewards us as employees by being involved but also gains community appreciation and continues to develop our relationships and ultimately brings new customers into our store.

How could you not be happy about working for a company like that?

Never Stop Improving!

Cheryl G - Store Manager

I made the decision to join Lowe's a few years ago because the Company values are truly lived everyday! It's refreshing to work for a company that truly cares about its customers and associates! Lowes provides the support and empowerment to ensure that you are able to provide excellent customer service through the excellent training plans and on the job experiences. It has been a very challenging and rewarding opportunity to open a store in a new province for the company and being able to share the great brand of Lowes.

There is a lot of emphasis placed providing excellent training to our associates to be able to serve the customers to the level expected. The policies and procedures are very thorough and I remember thinking as I reviewed them in my training how much they make sense.

The quality of the product that Lowes offers to our customers is top notch! From the quality of plants in the garden centre to grade of lumber that we carry - we are always looking to provide the best for our customers. It makes me proud to discuss products with our customers.

Lowes is truly a great place to work because of the people I work with. Over the years, some have become like family!

Fred P - Store Manager

In 2010, I received the exciting news informing me that I was extended an offer to join the team as an Admin Manager. It was a true turning point in my life and remains the best career decision I've ever made. Early into my on boarding, I was overwhelmed with the caring and respect I received from all levels of the company and almost four years later that still remains true. Lowe's is a company formed on the principals of integrity, passion, as well as family. As the company has evolved, they've stayed true to their foundation and continued to support each one of us, along with allowing those who want to achieve more the tools to do so. I'm a perfect example of this, having achieved Store Manager in 2012.

Thank you Lowe's from a very sincere and proud associate of this wonderful company.
