Lowe’s to hire 25,000 for spring

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Ahead of the busy spring season, Lowe’s is planning to hire approximately 25,000 seasonal employees to fill the ranks of cashiers, lawn and garden employees, loaders and stockers.

"Warmer temperatures stir homeowners to get started on projects they’ve planned during winter and they are often challenged when choosing the right products and solutions for their homes," said Scott Purvis, VP human resources, operations. "As Spring arrives, our stores are stocked with popular new tools, lawn and garden, paint and patio products. We want our stores staffed with knowledgeable employees who provide exceptional service and make shopping and selection easier for our customers."

Hiring and training will begin in regions of the country that are beginning to warm, such as Florida, South Texas, Arizona and Southern California.

According to the company, seasonal employees could work 20 or more hours per week, though this number will vary depending on the needs of individual stores.

Additionally, the length of the seasonal term will vary, though spring and summer months are typically the busiest.

This is just another BIG
This is just another BIG farce and is fake...I applied to Lowes about 20 times for 3 different positions in my area. I just got computer rejection e-mails. Had one interview with the Lowes Mererrville, Indiana stor for full time lumber. Said would let me know at end of week. They never called. I have over 20 years experience as a Retail Market Sales Representative and called on Lowes / Home depot stores. Know how to order and merchandise with-in both stores. And still cannot get hired. Been out of work for 15 months now also. They just collect applications as the way I see it - and both companies look good saying we are hiring in the thousands also.........I applied for seasonal; part-time; full-time.
