WASHINGTON, DC — Lowe's home improvement stores are on a massive hiring spree heading into the company's busiest season, seeking to hire 1,320 workers in the Washington, D.C., metro area as the chain adds more than 50,000 workers nationwide.

The company has planned its second annual National Hiring Day for Wednesday, Feb. 13, with the goal to hire full-time, part-time and seasonal associates at more than 1,700 U.S. stores. Candidates can apply in-person at Lowe’s stores nationwide from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 13. They will have the opportunity to meet hiring managers, speak with associates and some may receive on-the-spot offers.

“Lowe’s is a great fit for individuals who thrive on serving customers and want the benefits of working with one of the largest retailers in the country while being in a close-knit team environment, said Jennifer Weber, Lowe’s executive vice president, human resources, in a company news release. “Our National Hiring Day approach has proven to be a successful path for many to transition into careers with Lowe’s. Last year, nearly 40 percent of seasonal associates transitioned into permanent part-time and full-time positions.”

In-store seasonal positions, which typically are needed between February and September, include cashiers, lawn and garden associates, stockers and loaders. Lowe’s seasonal associates benefit from competitive pay and a 10 percent employee discount.

Part-time and full-time positions are also available and include department supervisors, customer service associates, cashiers, stockers and sales specialists. Part-time and full-time associates can take advantage of Lowe’s health and wellness benefits, with eligibility after 30 days of continuous service, incentive programs, 401(k), a discounted stock purchase plan, tuition reimbursement and paid volunteer time. Full-time associates are eligible for two weeks paid parental leave and 10 weeks maternity leave for childbirth.
