Lowe’s unveils 2020 hiring plans
The home improvement retailer readies for the busy spring season.
Lowe’s Companies, Inc. said that it plans to hire more than 53,000 full-time, part-time and seasonal associates for its U.S. stores this spring.
The retailer will hold hiring events in all store locations over the next three months by region to meet the seasonal spring hiring needs across the country. Lowe’s operates about 1,700 stores in the United States.
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 Jan. 8. According to Lowe’s, 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.
“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 vice president, 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 include cashiers, lawn and garden associates, stockers and loaders. All hourly associates are eligible to participate in Lowe’s quarterly bonus program.
Lowe’s hiring plan last year included bringing 65,000 new associates on board, including 50,000 seasonal employees.
In 2019, approximately 50% of seasonal hires were converted to permanent associates. Also, about 200 of Lowe’s current store managers began their careers at the company as seasonal hires.
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. Lowe’s also said it 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.
