Is it February already?

Before we know it, it’ll be time to pack away our winter coats (or light jackets for us down here in Florida) and break out the sunblock.

The warming weather means busier days are ahead for home improvement retailers, with spring being the most popular time for home building and renovation projects.

In preparation, Lowe’s is kicking off its annual hiring spree.

The home improvement chain aims to hire over 53,000 employees this spring, starting with a National Hiring Day event on Feb. 21.

You can head to your local Lowe’s store between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. for open interviews. You’ll get the chance to meet with hiring managers, learn about available positions and possibly walk out with a new job.

That’s right, Lowe’s will make on-the-spot job offers during the nationwide event.

But if you just can’t make it to the National Hiring Day, don’t worry: Lowe’s will also host a Facebook Live event on Feb. 21 at 2:15 p.m. EST to talk about job opportunities.

Full-time, Part-time and Seasonal Lowe’s Jobs

With the goal of gaining over 53,000 employees, Lowe’s will hire new employees in a wide variety of positions.

Seasonal Positions

  • Cashiers
  • Lawn and garden associates
  • Stockers
  • Assemblers of outdoor products
  • Loaders

Full- and Part-time Positions

  • Service and support managers
  • Customer service associates
  • Cashiers
  • Stockers
  • Sales specialists

Seasonal workers will usually work between March and September. And if you snag a seasonal job and want to continue working for Lowe’s at the end of the busy season, you have a chance to become a part- or full-time employee.

Nearly 40% of seasonal workers transition to a more permanent position, and Lowe’s currently employs about 200 managers who started as seasonal hires.

If you land one of these part-time or full-time Lowe’s jobs, you can get benefits such as a 401(k), tuition reimbursement and a discounted stock purchase plan.

Full-time employees will also get to take advantage of recently enhanced benefits such as expanded parental leave and adoption assistance. Lowe’s was one of many companies that announced upgraded benefits after the recent tax overhaul.

So, regardless of whether you’re looking for a temporary or permanent job, the Lowe’s National Hiring Day event is a good place to start.

Head over to their jobs site to apply prior to the event.
