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.

DON'T DO IT!!!! HR Managers work 55-60 hours per week and you are required to work two Saturdays a month and you are required to work until 11p.m. 5 nights per month. It is not a REAL HR MANAGER JOB. Some store managers and ASM's expect you to work a register and they are quick to resent the fact that you sit in an office...as if sitting down while working is not really work at all. On the other hand, I LOVE helping my associates. They are good people who work very hard and who are often verbally abused and sexually harassed by managers. Since I've received my 22% manager bonus check, I say FCUK LOWES.
I am having trouble with your comment, if you are an HRM and your managers are verbally and/or sexually harassing employee's why aren't you doing your job and correcting that situation? You know like following company policy and reporting these managers to the appropriate office? Your job is to protect your employee's from hostile work environments, sexual harassment and unfair labor practices and your comment is "Fuck Lowe's"? You don't deserve to be called and HRM or work within the HR field at all if that's your attitude.

<quoted text>Lowes ia not a professional place to work. You should go to the college and use retail as your final last resort. I think the store HR will sooner or later go away and we will only have district HR. Also, I would rater have working for a college on my resume than some retail position.
* I think you mean rather not rater this coming from a retail employee :-)
