Fuck Lowes.  Support Home Depot instead.  My wife works at Home Depot and I'd like to see her stock options go up! :grin:

I might be wrong, but I think they are both owned by the same parent company.

I doubt it. There is a huge rivalry between the two companies. And they compete in the same markets, building stores that affect each others bussiness. But stranger things have happened.

As far as starting pay goes...the wife says someone w/o any experience could probably get in around 8 or 9 an hour. Part-timers make more than full-timers to start out. And they do offer benefits for part-time employment now also.

Mom and Pop stores are so 19th century!  Get on the corporate band-wagon and sell your soul to the man like every good American! :smirk:

Home Depot openly says that they drug test everyone before hiring. There's a sign at my local one that basically says drug users shouldn't even bother applying. That would be a problem for most people on this board.

Make one huge hardware store, watch half the mom & pop hardware stores disappear.

Make two huge hardware stores, watch them all disappear.


There was some big fuss in my town about building a Lowe's because there was a Home Depot already.. so they built it right over the town line.

Good point. Didn't think about that. And the wife says everyone who is hired negotiates their own starting pay. So if you suck at negotiations you could be doing the same job as the guy next to you and getting payed less for it.

Lowes knows, hoes. As well as good starting pay and advancement opportunity. Around here there are Lowes springing up everywhere right next to Home Depots and slowly putting them out of business. I really like the Home Depot garden center, but if I am getting anything hardware, I go to Lowe's.
