I was a Sales Specialist, the only one in flooring riding very hard for 9 months. I come back from vacation and hauled into the office and told I'm being let go to "poor job performance ". Really. Consistent top 25 performer in my region on track for a 100k month. Actually have experience in my industry. But the person who replaced me is paid about 10 bucks an hour less. Estimates are now worked up off site. So I was no longer needed. All I can say is Lowe's is using the Sears business model. After all it's worked so well for Sears. Good luck. Professionals at Lowe's are no longer needed. Just throw the sh-- on the wall and see what sticks.
Same thing happened to my husband, . Replaced by a much cheaper worker, even if he was one of their best. They always find a reason, no matter how good you are. This is obviously a company wide thing, and frankly, I think it'll bring Lowe's down.
