Lowe’s will hire 25,000 temporary seasonal employees this spring, down from 45,000 during spring 2013. A company spokesperson said the company hired more employees overall last year and therefore needs fewer seasonal employees this year. The average seasonal employee will work 20 hours per week. Meanwhile, Home Depot plans to hire 80,000 temporary seasonal employees this year.
