MOORESVILLE, N.C., Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The calendar says winter, but Lowe's is thinking spring, announcing today it's hiring 46,000 seasonal employees to help customers during the spring and summer - the busiest time of year in the home improvement industry.
Typical seasonal positions include cashiers, lawn and garden associates, stockers and assemblers of favorite outdoor products – grills, wheelbarrows and lawn tractors. Loaders are needed to help customers carry purchases to their vehicles and also prepare products for customers who buy online at Lowes.com and pick up in stores.
Seasonal employees are most needed from February until September, when weather across the country improves, motivating customers to tackle indoor and outdoor home improvement projects.
"To help customers during our peak season, Lowe's is hiring about 6,000 more seasonal employees than last year," said Scott Purvis, Lowe's vice president, human resources operations. "Seasonal positions offer flexible work hours, a 10 percent employee discount and often can be an entry point for regular part-time or full-time employment."
