MOORESVILLE, N.C., 2018-Feb-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — Lowe’s is looking for people with customer service experience who have a passion for helping people love where they live. With a goal of filling more than 53,000 jobs, 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.

Candidates interested in a full-time, part-time or seasonal role can visit any of Lowe’s 1,700-plus U.S. stores to participate in open interviews and learn more about working at Lowe’s. The event is an opportunity to meet hiring managers, speak with associates and enjoy behind-the-scenes tours in an open house atmosphere.

“Our employees are the heart of our business and make a difference for the customers and communities we serve every day,” said Jennifer Weber, Lowe’s chief human resources officer. “Lowe’s is a great place to build a career, and we’re excited to host our largest-ever job fair to introduce people to our culture. We’re looking to hire customer-centric and service-minded people who are passionate about being a part of something bigger.”

Those who can’t make it to the open house can tune in to a Facebook Live event on the Lowe’s Careers channel at 2:15 p.m. EST on Feb. 21 to hear more from Weber about building a career at Lowe’s.

Recently named one of the top 10 most customer-engaged companies by Forbes, Lowe’s is hiring employees to serve customers and communities during the busy spring and summer seasons. Seasonal employees typically support stores between March and September. Available roles include cashiers, lawn and garden associates, loaders, stockers and assemblers of outdoor products. Lowe’s seasonal employees benefit from competitive pay, a 10 percent employee discount and flexible hours, including the opportunity to see their schedule 17 days in advance and swap shifts with others as needed.

Lowe’s employs nearly 250,000 people across its U.S. stores and provides career advancement opportunities at all levels. Last year, nearly 40 percent of Lowe’s seasonal employees transitioned into permanent part-time and full-time positions. Nearly 200 current store managers started as seasonal employees.

Jordan McGee was 19 when she took a seasonal job as a cashier in Gastonia, N.C. Just four years later, she was promoted to assistant store manager of sales in Clover, S.C.

“Lowe’s has supported me through my career journey by helping me develop into a stronger leader. When I started, I was only 19, with no management experience, so I’ve always had a mentor or someone helping me, just giving me that encouragement in my ear,” McGee said. “If there’s one word that describes Lowe’s, I would say ‘career,’ just because you can come in and be whoever you want to be. You have the potential to move all the way up through the ranks, and they’ll support you through that.”

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. Eligible part-time and full-time employees can take advantage of Lowe’s health and wellness benefits, incentive programs, 401(k), a discounted stock purchase plan, tuition reimbursement and flexible work schedules.

Earlier this month, Lowe’s announced plans to enhance its benefits, including expanded maternity and parental leave as well as adoption assistance. Eligible full-time hourly and salaried U.S. employees will qualify to receive:

  • Ten weeks of paid maternity leave and two weeks of paid parental leave.
  • An adoption assistance benefit to cover up to $5,000 of expenses related to agency, legal and other fees.
  • Eligibility to enroll in health benefits sooner, as early as the first of the month following 30 days of service.

Lowe’s hiring 1,700 full-time employees to fill new customer support and central production office positions

MOORESVILLE, N.C., 2017-Feb-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Each week, Lowe’s Companies, Inc. (NYSE: LOW) serves more than 17 million customers in stores, online, on the phone, in customers’ homes and on the jobsite. To continue helping customers wherever – and whenever – they need support, the company is hiring 1,700 full-time employees between now and October to fill new customer support and central production office positions.

“While home improvement inspiration and product selection often begins online and progresses at the store, the work starts at home,” said Jennifer Weber, chief human resources officer. “We want to be there every step of the way as customers move this work forward, whether it’s answering questions for DIY customers or coordinating the work for them through installation services. The central production office and contact center employees who join the Lowe’s team will be part of our continued omni-channel journey to better serve customers.”

Lowe’s customer support centers are located in Indianapolis, Albuquerque, N.M., and Wilkesboro, N.C., enabling the company to provide localized customer support across the U.S. Available customer support positions include representatives to assist the customers who call or email Lowe’s to process orders, schedule repairs or ask questions about specific products. Ideal candidates have computer proficiency and customer service experience.

In July 2016, Lowe’s launched a central production office out of its Indianapolis customer support center to provide customers with at-home installation services. Since its opening, the central production office has facilitated nearly 400,000 customer installations. To broaden this service to customers in the South, the company is expanding its central production office within its Wilkesboro customer support center.

Available central production office roles, which are based in Wilkesboro or Indianapolis, include service and production coordinators, field project specialists, supervisors and managers. Ideal central production office candidates have a broad knowledge of remodeling, project management and construction practices, as well as strong interpersonal skills.

The available positions per location are as follows (numbers are approximate):

Location Available positions
Indianapolis More than 500 customer support representatives
and central production office positions
Albuquerque More than 500 customer support representatives
Wilkesboro More than 600 customer support representatives
and central production office positions

Lowe’s full-time employees are eligible for a 10 percent employee discount, incentive programs, 401(k), discounted stock purchase plan, tuition reimbursement and paid time off for community volunteering.

In addition to full-time contact center and central production office roles, Lowe’s is also now hiring more than 45,000 seasonal employees across the U.S. to support customer needs during the busy spring season.
