Company makes a move to hire for Rhode Island sales jobs

Posted on March 4, 2014

As spring arrives and big projects are planned, Lowe’s, the giant home retailer, is recruiting and hiring big for Rhode Island sales jobs.

Lowe’s said it will hire about 25,000 new employees, which is less than Home Depot’s 80,000.

Experience in home improvement is a plus.

Seasonal jobs available are focused on customer support and include cashiers, lawn and garden employees, loaders, and stockers.

The number of hours worked per week will vary based on the needs of individual stores, but, on average, seasonal employees could work an estimated 20 or more hours per week.

Lowe’s Companies, Inc. is a FORTUNE® 100 company that serves approximately 15 million customers a week at more than 1,825 home improvement and hardware stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Founded in 1946 and based in Mooresville, N.C., Lowe’s is the second-largest home improvement retailer in the world.

The company plans to hire and train new seasonal employees first in areas where the climate has begun to warm, and continue on a market-by-market basis by climate and geography.

Hiring has already begun in Florida, south Texas, Arizona and southern California where warmer, spring-like temperatures are arriving.

“Warmer temperatures stir homeowners to get started on projects they’ve planned during winter and they are often challenged when choosing the right products and solutions for their homes,” said Scott Purvis, vice president, human resources, operations. “As Spring arrives, our stores are stocked with popular new tools, lawn and garden, paint and patio products. We want our stores staffed with knowledgeable employees who provide exceptional service and make shopping and selection easier for our customers.”
