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.
