KAWARTHA LAKES-Lowe’s Canada is launching an extensive spring hiring campaign today in preparation for what they anticipate to be the home improvement industry’s busiest season. Ultimately, the company hopes to fill over 7,000 full-time and part-time positions throughout its network of Lowe’s, RONA, and Reno-Depot corporate stores across the country with more than 3,000 positions open in Ontario.
“Over the last year, we have seen a great deal of interest in home improvement among Canadians. More than ever, our customers are counting on us to help them make their home comfortable and safe, and our store associates play a key role in supporting them throughout their projects,” explained Marc Macdonald, Senior Vice-President, Human Resources. “To meet the public’s increased demand and continue to offer the best service possible, we are looking for people who want to work for a top employer in a stimulating environment where they will be encouraged to harness their talents.”
Positions available range from Receiving Clerk and Sales Associate roles, to Sales Specialist, Administrative Support, and Merchandising roles. All candidates’ profiles are welcome, from the more experienced to those beginning their careers, as each new associate will receive training and mentoring directly linked to their responsibilities.
Hiring events adapted to a new reality
To achieve its hiring goal, Lowe’s Canada will hold a series of national and regional hiring events over the next two months. New this year: national events will take place exclusively online, while regional events will offer candidates a hybrid formula that allows them to complete their first interview online or in person, based on their preference. Candidates who choose an in-person interview can be assured that all necessary sanitary measures are in place at our stores. Those who opt for the virtual interview will be invited to create a profile on a platform custom-designed for Lowe’s Canada. They can then choose to record an interview video right away by answering a series of pre-recorded questions, or to book a time slot for a live video interview with a member of the Lowe’s Canada recruitment team.
“Given the current context, it was our priority to put forward innovative solutions to minimize store traffic during our events and provide candidates with more flexibility. This formula will also accelerate the hiring process and allow our new associates to take on their duties more quickly,” explained Nadine Chiasson, Director, Talent Acquisition at Lowe’s Canada.
The first national event will take place virtually on February 3 and 4, 2021. Those interested in a position in a Lowe’s, RONA, or Reno-Depot corporate store can now visit https://lowescanadahiring.ca/ to book a time slot for a live video interview during a hiring event, or submit their application today by opting for a pre-recorded video interview.
