Lowe’s is gearing up for Spring, adding 53,000 full time, part time and seasonal employees to its current 250,000. Lowe’s offers its employees a lot of benefits, even to those who are seasonal or part time in most cases. They provide a 10% employee discount, competitive wages, flex hours and the ability to see their schedule 17 days in advance in order to swap shifts if necessary. Part time and full time employees can also take advantage of their health and wellness benefits, incentive program, 401(k), stock purchase plan, and tuition reimbursement. 200 current Lowe’s store managers started as seasonal employees. Lowe’s is also known as a company that gives back. Last year, all of Lowe’s 1700 stores in the US served their communities through a Lowe’s Heroes volunteer community project. They also gave $2.5 million to disaster relief after the two major hurricanes last year. The company also offers full time employees paid time off for community service. New job openings span across the US, with the largest markets and openings being Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Raleigh-Durham and New York.
