The company is also hiring loaders to assist the increasing number of customers who order products online at and pick them up at their local store – a trend that accounts for approximately 60 percent of Lowe’s online orders. Hiring is underway and will continue on a market-by-market basis, with seasonal positions typically supporting stores between the months of March and September.

“Our goal is to meet customers wherever they are – whether in stores, online or at home – with the support, inspiration and solutions they need to tackle their home projects,” said Jennifer Weber, chief human resources officer. “Seasonal employees play an important role in helping customers during this peak period, and we’re excited to welcome them to the Lowe’s team.”
