Mooresville-based Lowe’s is hiring more than 4,200 workers in North Carolina, including more than 1,250 in the Charlotte area, this spring, the retailer’s busiest season.

The local seasonal hiring spree is part of a nationwide effort that includes Lowe’s taking on more than 53,000 seasonal workers, the home improvement retailer said in a statement this week.

Lowe’s is now taking applications for a number of temporary store positions, including cashiers, lawn and garden associates, stockers, assemblers of outdoor products and loaders. Those interested can apply online at https://jobs.lowes.com/spring-hire.

Lowe’s said its seasonal employees typically work from March through September. Nearly 40 percent of its seasonal jobs moved into permanent part-time and full-time positions, the company said.

A Lowe’s spokesman said the company is now taking applications, and will also be hosting a job fair March 1 at the Lowe’s on Ballantyne Commons Parkway. Additional hiring events will be announced at later dates, he added.

At this time last year, Lowe’s sought to hire 45,000 seasonal employees across the U.S., including 1,100 in Charlotte. Lowe’s operates 28 stores throughout the Charlotte metro area.
