MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- January 22, 2013

Lowe’s announced today it plans to hire approximately 45,000 seasonal
employees at its stores in the United States during spring – the busiest time
of year in the home improvement industry. The company will also add 9,000
permanent part-time employees.

Seasonal jobs available are focused on customer support and include cashiers,
lawn and garden specialists, loaders, and stockers. The number of hours worked
per week will vary based on the needs of individual stores, but, on average,
seasonal employees could work an estimated 20-25 hours per week.

The length of the seasonal employment will vary; however, seasonal employees
are most needed in spring and summer months, typically from February until
September, when weather has improved and customers are tackling both indoor
and outdoor home improvement projects. The company plans to hire and train new
seasonal employees first in areas where the climate has begun to warm, and
continue on a market-by-market basis by climate and geography.

The permanent part-time positions include store associates focused on direct
interaction and expertise for customers. Employees in the permanent positions
will be scheduled to work during peak weekday shopping times.

“We are focused on providing customers with outstanding service,” said Scott
Purvis, vice president, human resources, operations. “We are looking for
candidates who are experienced in any of the home improvement trades, and,
most importantly, those who are committed to providing Lowe’s customers an
exceptional service experience.”

Available positions are being posted and applications accepted online at
