The Loss Prevention (Robert) from work called me last week and it was a major surprise because I was thinking it was dealing with something badBut it was something totally different.

For next few weeks Ill be working under him (Robert) and our main store manager (Jeff) and have to answer to nobody else but them and it basically is morning hours mon-fri and right up to 40 hours a week which I am currently under that with the cashiering. It was going to be like 7-4, but he offered 8-5 and I was like that’s a lil better cause it gives me lest 1 more hour of sleep. I started last tuesday morning with this new spot.Its only for 3 weeks untill invatory hits on July 9th, and ill eventually go back to cashiering. But it was a major opportunity laid in my hands today cause they have seen how hard a worker I am. And Ive worked with Robert a few times. Being Loss Prevention he is all over the store so he notices how certain people work and he noticed that I am a very hard worker. He said that most people are like dimes and you can shine them up, but with me he thinks he has the diamond in the ruff! How awesome is it being told that! He also said that the last person that had in this spot did not work out and when he had to talk to the store manager Jeff he said because of how hard he has noticed that I work that my name was at the very top of his list! :D

He says also that this can be a major stepping-stone for me to move up in the store and move up into a Head-Cashier spot when I return to cashiering when he is done with me, espesially with us losing 4 of our 8 head-cashiers recently, or he and Jeff may move me up to a team-leader in a department (probaly Tools cause I have all my test and stuff done for that department) if i prove myself with working with them over these next couple weeks.

I have one more question.  I just applied online at Lowes, and I was wondering, how often do they check for new apps? How long should I wait to call them if I don't hear from them? Is it hard to get hired, I mean, I've never had a job before because I've always done sports and things throughout high school, and I don't want them to think that's bad and not bring me in for an interview. Maybe I'm just worrying about it too much lol.

Well, thanks again!

I wanted to apply at Lowes soon. I was wondering if it is better to go in, see the manager, and ask for an application or to just apply online. Also, I know that each store probably pays different wages, but what is the average for just starting, is it min. wage?

Thanks in advance.

Been with Lowes for a lil over a month now and working my rear off to move up from cashier to head cashier. I am always all over the store runing aroudn doing this and that and all the jobs they can find for me to do cause they already notice iam a hard worker and I personally love it and rather be working my rear off and runnign around like a checken with its head cut off, even though at the end of the day my legs be say otherwise. ive already been told by a few head cashiers that ive gotten to know that they are already looking at me to make the move up.

Though working on finishing up my associates in business, i see problems in the company and how at times they can be uncareing.

The thing that annoys me the most right now is having to talk to the person that makes the scheduals pretty much every week cause i can only work morning hours saturdays and sundays and am unavailable on tuesdays, and every darn week I have to pull teeth so to say just to get it fixed. You would think they would get a better system for making scheduals.

This is a very late post! We decided to pull out ALL the carpet from the house and replace it with hardwood. I have to say, because it was on a concrete slab, it was a tedious project, but is one of the best decisions we have made in our first home.

Anyone in the Charlotte, NC are? I have (6) boxes and glue left over. Here is the Ebay auction:

I am not trolling, but if the moderator feels this is against the rules, feel free to delete the post, I wont be upset.

THANK YOU FOR ALL RESPONSES. just answer to the best of your ability. if some questions are not applicable to you, it is ok to leave them blank.

Hi all,

There's a nice, sunny, enclosed back porch in my apartment that I want to make better use of, but the floor is noticeably slanted. It's not as if things roll off the tables in there, but it's slightly uncomfortable to sit in chairs because of the floor's slant.

Is there any way I can make the floor less slanted (or make it feel less slanted) short of tearing the room down and building a new one (which I can't do anyway because I'm just renting the apartment)? Any help would be much much much appreciated.
Thanks!
