Company recruits for sales jobs in Rhode Island
Posted on February 17, 2013
A massive hiring spree is contributing to the boost of sales jobs in Rhode Island.
The retail giant will be hiring about 45,000 people nationwide.
Seasonal jobs available are focused on customer support and include cashiers, lawn and garden specialists, 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 20-25 hours per week.
With fiscal year 2011 sales of $50.2 billion, Lowes Companies, Inc. is a FORTUNE 100 company that serves approximately 15 million customers a week at more than 1,745 home improvement stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Seasonal employees are most needed in spring and summer months, typically from February until September.
The permanent part-time positions include store associates focused on direct interaction and expertise for customers. Employees in the permanent positions will be scheduled to work during peak weekday shopping times.
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.
We are focused on providing customers with outstanding service, said Scott Purvis, vice president, human resources, operations. We are looking for candidates who are experienced in any of the home improvement trades, and, most importantly, those who are committed to providing Lowes customers an exceptional service experience.
