Lowe’s to Hire 20,000 Associates for Holiday Season

Here’s some good news on jobs: retailer Lowe’s Companies has announced it will hire 20,000 associates across its U.S. stores and regional distribution centers to support customer demand this holiday season and beyond.

The announcement comes as the company commits another $100 million in discretionary bonuses to thank front-line hourly associates and support their families during the holiday season.

In addition to seasonal help for the holidays, Lowe’s is actively filling permanent full-time and part-time roles at stores and adding 2,500 team members at regional distribution centers nationwide.

Available supply chain openings include day, night, weekend and overnight shifts for team members, and store positions include cashiers, customer service associates, receivers, unloaders, load pullers and sales specialists.

Active hourly associates at U.S. stores, distribution centers and call centers will receive the bonus on Nov. 13 as they support customers preparing their homes for holiday celebrations and winter weather.

Full-time hourly associates will receive $300, and part-time and seasonal associates will receive $150.

The sixth bonus payment builds on the $100 million announced earlier this month for associate bonuses in October, bringing Lowe’s total support of associates during the pandemic to more than $775 million.

Lowe’s previously provided special payments and bonuses to hourly associates in March, May, July, August, October and now, November. Additionally, in April, front-line associates received a temporary $2 per hour wage increase.

Throughout the pandemic, Lowe’s hired over 155,000 associates through its seasonal hiring process, with many associates transitioning to more permanent roles with the company.
