My life at Lowe’s

January 22, 2009

Here’s a little run down of what life is like at Lowe’s.

Our department is made up of Three full time people and two part timers.

Team Lead: Memphis(real man is Matthew, and I have no idea why he goes by Memphis)

Memphis is the paperwork/delegater of the department. Standing at 6’1″ and weighing in at around 250, he’s a beast to be reckoned with. He’s a great guy, even if he has a tendency to drop the F bomb every other word. Btw, Memphis is early thirty’s

Sales Specialist 1: Chris. Well, Chris is…Chris. He is 24 and comically full of himself. He and I hold many things in common such as, he and I are the only ones with any real flooring installation background, he did martial arts for 12yrs(and we usually joke about beating each other up), he’s young, and he’s got a great sense of humor.

Sales Specialist 2: Jackie. Oooohhh Jackie Jackie Jackie. Dear Jackie started at Lowe’s as a cashier, and just started working in the flooring department as a specialist about 2months ago. She is our department mother. Whether it’s buy office supplies(out of her own pocket) to sort out the department paper, to shaking her head and correcting us guys when the humor gets out there, she is always ready to learn something knew about flooring product and install(seeing she knows absolutely nothing). For those of you that know my Dad’s side of the family, Jackie is like Aunt Lora.

Customer Service Associate(CSA/Dept Peon) 1: John. John is a good hard worker, and great on the Reach Truck(a forklift with extending arms). He’s 42, and from what I hear has ever gaming station set up in his basement individually hooked up with it’s own sitting area. Though John and I haven’t worked much together, I have a good amount of respect for him, because I know that if my shifts after him the zone will be clean.

Customer Service Associate(CSA/Dept Nooby Peon) 2: Tom!!!!!!!! That’s me! I don’t always feel like I’m every going fit in at Lowe’s, and partially do to the fact that I don’t work full time yet. Now officially trained to run the Counterweight Forklift, Order picker Lift, Reach Truck, Electric Dolley, and all the cutting equipment, I can at least keep up on all the stocking issues and needs of the customers. So far I’ve been designated the brains/info box of the department when Chris isn’t there, and told that the departments never looked this good, or kept in this good of order EVER(by all the people in manager positions). The only thing I fear is that in working so hard, I might never move up to a specialist(since I’m so handy as a CSA).

That’s our flooring department at Lowe’s store 2545.

A bit of humor:

There’s nothing harder then trying to help a mute gentleman pick out a grout color for his kitchen. Or explain installation to a Hispanic who can’t speak English.

    English my lad!…do you mean “Are you ever on google talk?”. And the answer is “Rarely”. I find that as soon as I log in I end up sitting there for hours talking to dozens of people. So, I stop logging in as often.
