How to Use MyLowesLife
There are two requirements you must meet if you want to use the Lowes’ employee portal. The first one is that you must be a Lowes’ employee. The other is that you must be set up in the system. This should happen shortly after you begin working for the company. If it’s been a couple of weeks since you started, and you are still not in the system, you should contact your human resources department to check on the status of the inclusion in the portal.
Once you are included in the system, all you have to do is have a computer, Internet connection, and go to the website, MyLowesLife.com.
Once you are on the homepage, you will see on the left hand side two fields to complete – Sales Number and Password.
Your hiring manager or the human resources manager should have given you the sales number to use. You can also find it on your paycheck. Your password should have also been given to you during your training. If you forget your password, you can click on Forgot Password? to reset it.
You will need to enter your Sales Number, and then answer security questions. If you answer the security questions correctly, you will receive a password. If not, you’ll have to call for help.
You’ll also notice at the top left corner a section for you to change your password and setup security questions. You will need to log into your account to do this though, so it’s a good idea that when you first log into the system that you change your password to something you can remember and set up the questions immediately.
Never give out your Sales Number and Password to anyone. This information is the key that unlocks a lot of your personal information. While the website is highly secure with the latest in Internet security, it can’t protect you if you give someone what they need to log in. Keep your Sales Number and Password in a secure location always.
Using the Lowes’ Employee Portal

If you do not find that information is correct, or there is missing information, contact your human resources department. Human resources will be able to check to make sure it has been set up properly for you to use.
