Lowe’s Canada is holding a national hiring day on March 14 in a mass recruitment effort that will see 4,700 full-time and part-time season hiring positions and 700 regular positions filled.

The co-ordinated event is running that day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in all of its Lowe’s RONA and Reno-Depot corporate stores across Canada — nearly 600 stores in total.

Applicants are invited to visit their local store and meet the management teams. Some applicants may even get a job offer on the same day, the company said.

“Our seasonal employees play a vital role in our organization by supporting our stores during our industry’s peak months, from May to September, enabling us to provide the same exemplary level of customer service. We are seeking driven, dynamic, and customer-focused applicants to join our teams,” said Marc Macdonald, senior vice-president, human resources at Lowe’s Canada. “Applicants will find career opportunities with us that live up to their ambitions as well as plenty of avenues to develop their skills and deepen their knowledge.”

Available positions

Available positions include administrative support associates (in store), drivers (class 1 and 3), sales associates, receiving clerks, stockers, customer service associates, cashiers, and lumber yard clerks. Experience in the home improvement sector is not required for submitting an application since all new employees will have access to training and mentoring suited to the various positions. To accommodate student applicants, the hiring date for most seasonal jobs is flexible.

Some independent dealers affiliated with the RONA banner will take this opportunity to hold their own hiring event on March 14.

Benefits being offered

Lowe’s Canada offers many benefits to its employees, such as exclusive discounts, educational incentive programs, and continuing education to perfect their skills.

“We are proud to provide a diverse and inclusive environment where everyone is encouraged to let their passion blossom and to share their ideas. Our employees are driven by a desire to help people make their projects a reality, and they contribute to making Lowe’s Canada a great workplace,” said Macdonald.
