Lowes National Hiring Day is Wednesday February 21st.
Lowe’s stores nationwide will open their doors to candidates from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 21 during the company’s first National Hiring Day. Lowe’s employs nearly 250,000 people across its U.S. stores.
Looking for a part time job? Try Lowes. While most stores hire part time workers all year long, the spring selling season is when most of the part time and seasonal employment takes place.
Lowe’s also will hold open interviews and make conditional job offers on the spot for part-time and full-time positions, including service and support managers, cashiers, stockers and sales specialists.
Interviews usually begin in mid to late February, so get your online application done soon. If you wait until March or April, most jobs will already be filled. Don’t forget to search similar stores such as Wal Mart, Home Depot and Menards.
It’s Lowes Spring Hire
Every year Lowes hires thousands of employees spring! Retirees, gardeners, empty nesters, students, veterans and those who just happen to be looking for a job for 3-4 months.
These seasonal positions typically help stores between March and September and positions include cashiers, lawn and garden associates, stockers, loaders and assemblers of outdoor products like grills and patio furniture.
According to Lowes press release, approximately 200 current store managers started as seasonal employees, and last year nearly 40 percent of the company’s seasonal employees transitioned into permanent part-time and full-time positions.
“When employees join Lowe’s, they are joining more than a Fortune 40 company,” said Jennifer Weber, chief human resources officer. “They are joining a supportive network of caring, inspiring team members who are here to serve customers, communities and each other.”
Here are a few stores with estimated hiring needs:
New York 1,200
San Antonio 350
San Diego 250
Washington D.C. 550
What Does Lowes Pay Part Time Employees?
Well, that depends. Your Lowes pay mostly has to do with location and what the store needs. As the economy improves, stores will hire more people, but wages won't always rise.
If you are looking in a major city, like New York, Tampa or Los Angeles, expect $12-$14 an hour.
Smaller markets, say populations under 200,000, look to make $9-$11 an hour.
