Lowe’s, Home Depot Hiring Thousands for Spring Season

FINS (02/27/2012) Damian Ghigliotty

The home improvement chains Home Depot and Lowe’s are hiring temporary workers to meet demand during the busy spring season, and they note that temporary workers can view seasonal employment as opening the door to a permanent, full-time position. Home Depot says around 50% of the seasonal workers hired last year were given permanent positions. The company is hiring 70,000 temporary workers, having filled 20% of the positions already, while Lowe’s is taking on 40,000 seasonal workers. Seasonal employees will work 20 to 25 hours, with wages based on position, skills, and past experience, and job duration based on the market. The companies are accepting online applications for seasonal employees, and they are looking for applicants with customer service skills and previous experience in the retail or home improvement trades.
