Mooresville-based Lowe’s just announced plans to hire over 65,000 new employees in 2019.
The plan includes hiring over 50,000 seasonal workers, including over 420 around the Charlotte region.
All Charlotte-area Lowes stores will be holding job fairs today from 10am-7pm for seasonal positions between March and September. Most of these seasonal positions are cashiers, lawn and garden associates, loaders, and stockers.
In addition to the new seasonal hires, Lowes also plans on hiring over 18,000 technology, managerial and full-time MST employees in 2019.
“We are sharpening our focus on retail fundamentals and simplifying our business,” said Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe’s president and CEO. “We are investing in key leadership positions across our stores to enhance customer service while also creating jobs that will improve the availability of our most popular products, transform our technology infrastructure and provide more access for customers to the home improvement expertise of our store Associates.”
To spur on sales this spring season, Lowes is also now offering a 10%-off coupon for all Charlotte area residents.
