Lowe’s gets a jump on spring with in-store hiring blitz
It’s only January but spring is in the air at Lowe’s Companies.
The home improvement retailer on Thursday announced plans to hire more than 53,000 full-time, part-time and seasonal associates across its more than 1,700 U.S. stores this spring. Lowe’s will roll out hiring events in all store locations during the next three months by region to meet the seasonal spring hiring needs across the country.
Lowe’s stores in Florida, Southern California and Hawaii, as well as parts of Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Texas, Alabama and Georgia, where spring weather typically arrives earliest, will host the first walk-in hiring events from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 8.
Candidates may receive on-the-spot offers during this open interview process.
Lowe’s will host additional hiring events at stores in the remaining U.S. regions on Jan. 15, Feb. 5, Feb. 19 and March 4. The retailer noted that in 2019, approximately 50% of seasonal hires were converted to permanent associates, and that nearly 200 current store managers started as seasonal associates.
“Spring is the busiest season for home improvement projects and a great time to launch a new career at Lowe’s,” said Jennifer Weber, Lowe’s executive VP, human resources. “As part of our strategy to better serve customers and operate our stores more efficiently, these hiring events will help us build the right teams at the right times across the U.S. to meet customer demand as they plan for spring.”
Available in-store seasonal positions at Lowe’s include cashiers, lawn and garden associates, stockers and loaders. Full-time and part-time year-round positions are also available and include department supervisors, cashiers, stockers, sales specialists, pro customer service associates, and merchandise service associates.
Full-time and part-time associates can take advantage of Lowe’s comprehensive health and wellness benefits, incentive programs, 401(k), a discounted stock purchase plan, tuition reimbursement and paid volunteer time. Lowe’s also offers “Track to the Trades,” a company-funded certification program to help part-time and full-time associates pursue careers in the skilled trades, such as plumbing, electrical or HVAC.
