Lowe's to Hire 54,000 Workers for Spring Season

January 24, 2013

The home improvement retailer Lowe's plans to hire 54,000 part-time workers this spring, and company officials say they expect 9,000 of the jobs to become permanent positions.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the company's hiring plans reflect a gradual turnaround in the housing market, a rebound in the economy and an improving job market.

John Challenger, of the job placement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc., says the large-scale hiring effort reflects another trend as well. Challenger says companies are relying more on part-timers to fill specific needs
