Lowe's Canada to Hire 3,000 Employees in First Half of 2016

Second Annual National Hiring Day set for Saturday March 5th in anticipation of spring and summer

TORONTO, ON - January 25, 2016 - Today Lowe's Canada announced plans to hire approximately 3,000 new employees to fill seasonal roles at its 42 Canadian stores and positions at six new stores that are expected to open in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario by mid-2016.

To help meet customer needs during the spring and summer seasons, Lowe's will host its second annual National Hiring Day on Saturday March 5th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (local time in each city) at its 42 Lowe's locations across Canada. Potential candidates are invited to walk in to any Lowe's store across Canada to learn more about available employment opportunities and apply in person during National Hiring Day. Management teams will be onsite ready to accept applications and conduct on-the-spot interviews. In some instances, offers of employment will be made onsite to successful applicants. Those unable to apply in person can go to www.lowes.ca/careers at any time to submit their applications.

"We have a lot of great seasonal employment opportunities available as the warmer seasons approach and customers get ready to tackle their outdoor projects," says Wanda Walkden, VP of Human Resources and Communications, Lowe's Canada. "At Lowe's we are looking for passionate people who are ready to help our customers achieve their project goals and dreams. We also offer great opportunities in our garden centres for people with a passion for horticulture, who want to share their expertise and gardening tips with our customers".

Seasonal employees are most needed in spring and summer, typically from March until September, when weather has improved and customers are ramping up their indoor and outdoor home improvement projects. Typical seasonal positions include customer service associates, cashiers, loaders, stockers, sales specialists and assemblers. Approximately 40-50 seasonal positions are hired per store.

Hiring for Lowe's six new stores will create approximately 150 jobs at each location, and an additional 40-50 seasonal roles. Interested candidates can visit www.lowes.ca/careers for more information and are encouraged to visit the site often for details on job fairs and employment opportunities.
