Lowe's Boosts its Seasonal Hiring
Home improvement retailer Lowe's said Thursday that it plans to hire 46,000 seasonal employees for the spring and summer, its busiest time of the year. That's about 15 percent more seasonal workers than it hired in 2015. Lowe's Companies Inc., based in Mooresville, N.C., said it's hiring cashiers, stockers, lawn and garden clerks, and people to assemble outdoor products such as lawn tractors. It's also seeking loaders, who help customers carry out their purchases and prepare items bought online at Lowes.com for pickup at stores.
