My advice would be to take whatever position suits your lifestyle best. Yes are there HRM's that sit in the office all day and do nothing? sure. But it is also perception, HR most of the time is in the office dealing with multiple concerns and is extremely frustrating when they think we are doing nothing.. sit in there shoes for 2 weeks and you'll see how it is. You will learn some many things at Lowes you may not learn at a college.. completely up to you.. what I would be concerned about its the elimination/change of the HR role. I certainly dont think HR will go away as we are needed in the store but it may change.
Anytime the SM is gone there is a mass exodus of managers-coming in late, 3 hour lunches, going home early etc. It is the standing joke around our store. The MM needs to do surprise visits on those days... either the SM is dumb or she doesn't care.

LOWES EthicsPoint...DON'T DO IT.

https://secure.ethicspoint.com/domain/media/e...

I work as an HR Manager and I can tell you, when you file an ethics point call, you are giving your personal information to a THIRD PARTY. They will turn around and send it right to your manager and HR and their will be retaliation. I have seen it happen. If you have a strong case, you should go to the EEOC and file a reverse discrimination charge, sexual discrimination charge, discrimination charge, Lowes will NOT TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY, unless you file a complaint with the E.E.O.C. or Lawyer up. Remember to keep your emails, print them off, etc.

This person is obviously trying to drum up business for their shady law firm. You can tell the way they talk about certain topics, that they have absolutely no HR experience with Lowe's.

Which department do you work in? Under your store managers desk?

Since he's incapable of original thought, Jerry cleverly resorts to the "under the desk" line. Has the Don Rickles box set. The "new nedm", predictable.

Yeah, a desk you share with like 15 other people, back in receiving, with the rest of the freight monkeys.
