i would start work , usually with a customer waiting. some of the customers would complain that lowes didn't have all the items that some of the other home improvement stores have. i learned more about home improvement, that is; knowledge of basic electrical wiring, plumbing and hardware. management was mediocre; sometimes reluctant to assist me expecting to know things i was never shown. i would rely on other employees to help me because the had been there for years. the most enjoyable part of the job was the colleagues that i worked with. the one thing i did like was the rate of pay was o.k., not as good as being in the union local 705.
