MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Mooresville-based Lowe’s announced Tuesday it will be hiring more than 200 full-time employees for its headquarters.
The employees at its Mooresville headquarters will be a part of the company’s central quoting team, which is responsible for preparing flooring installation quotes for Lowe’s stores across the U.S.
The available positions will include supervisor and coordinator roles.
On top of the positions at its headquarters, Lowe’s is also hiring more than 200 full-time employees for the central production office, which is based in Wilkesboro.
Employees at the Wilkesboro office help to coordinate customer installations across the South. Those roles include service and production coordinators and field project specialists.
Ideal candidates interested in joining the central quoting team in Mooresville have computer proficiency and service support experience. Ideal central production office candidates have a broad knowledge of remodeling, installation management and installation practices, as well as strong interpersonal skills.
These hires come after the home improvement giant had to layoff thousands of people earlier this year.
Lowe's announced in January it had told 2,400 full-time workers they would be laid off. The majority of the cuts were at the store level, with other cuts occurring at distribution centers, customer support centers and vice presidents at the company's corporate office.
A company spokeswoman said the layoffs are part of a new store staffing model.
In February, Lowe’s announced it had to lay off 525 employees, with most of them being at the Mooresville headquarters. Company officials said it was part of the company’s effort to create a more efficient operating structure for corporate-based positions.
In June, 125 employees in the information technology department were laid off. Company officials said most of the jobs would be moved to India.
