U R AN IDIOT! Name a box store with better customer service than lowes. And greed isn't the cause. If u were running a company and were down over 20 percent ytd, I'm sure u wuld do the same...or u wuld not be in business.

We have achieved above budget all year..and met all of our customer service numbers and quota.....

...Whats the excuse now...there was no method to this madness....only GREED.. as many other great Americans have said...
We should stand together...OR FALL ONE BY ONE!!!! its our choice...OUR COMPANY WE MAKE LOWE'S GREAT

NOT YOU ROBERT....and to all the CEO's... i hope you all get what you deserve WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN...

WE ALL HELPED THEM RISE...BLOOD SWEAT TEARS...TIME AWAY FROM OUR FAMILIES AND CHILDREN...WE MAKE LOWES WHAT IT IS!!!!!

Everyone ask yourself this ...Can Lowe's be great and profit with NO ONE there to run the store???

Do we want to work for a company that does everything secretly...and act cowardly and call it a RESTRUCTURING.....BS... It was a massive layoff/firing of good hardworking people that helped make OUR company what it is today... Lets Just change the sign to say HOME DEPOT....

I was cut today. No loyalty with this company. After 12 years of busting my ass, working any job, running great inventories, managing the remodel, to finally get in a position where I got bonus and by the way, thanks for the great sales year, they ripped my heart out. I used to tell my friends and community
to shop at lowes, they dont deserve the caps anymore. It is just wrong. I guess I did not kiss my dm's ring enough.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you didnt see the 3rd quarter report that said lowes as a company reported net earnings of 404 million?! Down 20%?! A 17% increase from the same period last year! Get your facts straight before you go spouting off at the mouth.

I was the admin at my store and went down to asm my ops went down to zone 4 my sales mgr and zone 3 mgr were let go all I can say is that this was not based on the time or age due to my z2 mgr no longer then 4 months at his position is still there and my zone 3 that lost his jod was only 36y old and a very good worker also my z1 mgr (nice guy but sucks cant even run a register and is on a final got to keep his job ) I know for a fact that the store manager had no say in this my opinion is that it had something to do with ccic. Just my 2 cents

Some of you need to understand that after growth is recession, just like the tides. Lowe's is downsizing and next is growth again. just like night comes day. Weed out the bad and make the company stronger. Look at the STOCKS people! Growth is inevidable now. Every company does it. If you got laid off is was your lack of production, sorry just being real.

I disagree.our ops was a pos, but my zone was a ver hard worker. I believe underperforming stores should have been hit harder than profitable stores. By eliminating positions at all stores is assinine and is a lazy act by niblock.

Are you a new employee???...you must be!!.. you have no CLUE...FIND ONE..and then make a comment...I've been with Lowe's for 7 count it 7 years... I've seen our customer service slowly deteriorate and It seems we hire the person that cost the least for the job...NOT THE QUALIFIED ONES... or even ones that know what they are doing...just someone to fill the void...KIND OF LIKE YOU!!!!

Wake up!!!!!!....and smell the coffee!!!

i am senior mgmnt at my store. we r under 20 mill. dont rate an ops. lost sales mgr. went to floor as asm, other zones switched depts., but stayed, now called asm. admin stayed. we got told only ops wre gone, and sales mgrs. getting put on floor. no one said anything about what i have been reading. holy shit is right. we did get a 2% raise to placate us for the change in bonus struct.

we got no paper/letter, just new job descript that is same crap as before, only now says at bottom, where you sign if you agree to take new position, "the company reserves the right to eliminate any position as needed"

we got told nothing changes but bonus, and title, job still the same.

My husband worked over 13 years with them...he gave everything he had and my family many times attended important events without him because he loved his job so much...several of those left in positions were managers on finals for attendance issues, behavior, etc...perhaps you need to think before you write something...my husband has NEVER been written up for anything, maxed out on his performance reviews every year, and bled for Lowes...your probably one of the jerks who was kept and on a final

I'm with you on that!!!!

My child just asked me.... Why would LOWES get rid of GOOD PEOPLE? that makes no sense.... you need a union... they wouldn't go for that..... from the mouth of minors....

sad when a CHILD understands how improtant it is to have GOOD PEOPLE and yet CORP doesn't.....

I KNOW ALL OF MY MANAGERS WERE GREAT! and that leaves the rest of us to wonder who's next? and for the prior post on "loss" unsure where you got your info but weve done WELL THIS YEAR. AGAIN I say to all managers, I'm sorry for the pain that LOWES has caused you and your families.
