Lowe's Companies announced today that it plans to hire about 240 seasonal workers for its 14 stores in the Charlotte area.
In total, the Mooresville-based company said it plans to take on 30,000 seasonal employees across the country this spring, the busiest time of year for home improvement projects. Positions include cashiers, lawn and garden employees, loaders and stockers.
According to Lowe's, most of its seasonal employees work at least 20 hours a week. The home improvement retailer has already begun hiring in warmer states such as Florida, California, Texas and Arizona.
''To help make shopping and selection easier, we want our stores staffed with knowledgeable employees who'll provide exceptional service for customers,'' Scott Purvis, Lowe's vice president of human resource operations, said in a statement.
Lowe's is the second-biggest home improvement company in the country behind Home Depot and operates more than 1,800 stores in North America.
