BOUCHERVILLE, QC, Feb. 24, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - In preparation for the home improvement industry's busiest season, Lowe's Canada, one of Canada's leading home improvement retailers operating or servicing close to 600 corporate and affiliated stores under different banners, is looking to fill over 4,700 full-time and part-time seasonal positions and 700 regular positions in its network of corporate stores this spring. To officially kick off its spring hiring campaign, Lowe's Canada is holding the third edition of its National Hiring Day on March 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in all its Lowe's, RONA, and Reno-Depot corporate stores in Canada. 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.

"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 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.
