Canada’s home improvement retailers Lowe’s Canada has revealed plans to recruit to fill more than 650 positions in Quebec. 

The recruitment will consist of more than 625 full-time and part-time regular positions at RONA and Reno-Depot corporate stores, as well as around 30 positions at the Boucherville distribution centre. 

Positions include sales specialists, lumber yard associates, department managers, cashiers, stockers and customer service assistants.  

All selected associates will be provided training and mentoring required to fulfil their roles. 

Lowe‘s Canada human resource senior vicepresident Marc Macdonald said: “As we navigate through these trying times, we offer multiple career opportunities, stable and rewarding jobs, as well as a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment.  

“More specifically, we are actively hiring for approximately 200 positions in our stores in Montérégie, 100 positions on the Island of Montreal, 60 positions in Lanaudière, 50 positions in both Laval and Outaouais, 40 positions in Laurentides region, and more than 120 positions in the rest of the province.” 

In addition, Lowe’s Canada announced that it will pay a discretionary bonus to all eligible full-time, part-time, and seasonal associates working at Lowe’s, RONA, or Reno-Depot corporate stores, contact centres, and supply-chain facilities in Canada in the second half of this month. 

The move is part of the company’s recognition to front-line hourly associates for their service amid the pandemic.
