Just wondering if anyone knows when we find out what our raises are?

I'd say I agree. 10 cents maximum, and maybe a ball cap or a key chain or something....

Store managers get the spread sheet next week. They have until the 15th to finalize the numbers and you should see your new rate on the first paycheck in April. Easiest way to figure this out is look at last years pay stubs...two weeks before the higher paycheck was when you found out last year.

So who determines what % your raise is, district or your store manager?

My store manager told me before the NSM that raises would be reflected in our March 22 paycheck. As far as the amount, he wasn't sure.

any bets? 1-3%. Hardly helps when the cost of living goes up double digits each year. Gas-almost $1 more than 3 months ago.

Before all you managers making $50+K per year tell me I should be grateful for 1-2% let me remind you-1% of $10/hour is a lot less than 1% of $50,000 ($25/hour).

Whatever pathetic raise your receive… take a little pleasure in knowing that it really, really pains Lowe’s to give you anything!

Remember, in their eyes, you are the problem. While corporate tries to hide their disdain for store employees, they privately blame all their failures directly on the store staff.

The average median pay raise across the country is expected to be about 3%, which is up from last year, but stingy. Do you expect Lowe's to come in higher than that?
And if a manager complains alongside you that they're not happy about a 1 or 2% raise is it ok?
Just curious...

If a manager argues along with you over your raise then they dont know any better. It has been the same in my store ever since i can remember. Ranking does not matter. PDP does not matter. Performance in really any aspect does not matter. We all get the same shitty raise, blanket acrossed the board. So the guy who ran a terrible department with the worst overall performance receives the same raise. It is mostly bullshit.

I will answer you with a question-"Do managers care that we make enough money to qualify for low income subsidies?" I have made $75,000.$50,000 and $40,000 and would be tickled pink to make $50,000 again. What I do know though is that most of us spend more than we take in--kind of like the govt.

So, no, I would not feel sorry for them if they are making $50,000 and complain, let them step into the shoes of those making $10 an hour and they will not complain about making $50,000.

Not true. Raises always differ. Some DMs get 1% and some get 4%

I just heard what the raise will be, everyone is going to get a pair of Dr. Scholls shoe lifts with the odor eater upgrade.

Associates will get the delux standard 1/4 in.lift, and the managers will get the SOS 1/2 in.lift. Please forward your shoe size and employee number to HR in Connections ASAP (LOL)

We have all averaged a 2%. We have gathered and discussed it on several occasions.

The associates in my store, except a few first job cashiers, all make more than $10.00/hr. Those 50k managers accepted their position at a given rate just like every associate in the building. I'd like to make 50k a year, but don't want to put in those hours. Now, if the national average for raises is expected to be 3%, anyone who works hard and doesn't land in the ballpark of that deserves the right to complain, regardless of what the amount is a % of.
