Lowe’s was founded by World War II veteran Carl Buchan, and it was his leadership, vision, and military skills that helped us grow from a small hardware store in Wilkesboro, NC, to the nation’s second largest home improvement retailer and FORTUNE 50® company. The military is truly a part of our history and an important part of our plan for the future. We recognize, honor, and respect those who serve in our country's military, and encourage veterans, reservists and military spouses to join the Lowe’s family. That’s why Lowe’s is a Military Friendly Employer and why as we continue to grow, so does our commitment to the military as a source of valuable talent. We also partner with and support the following military organizations:

Transitioning Veterans

If you’ve just returned from active military service and are seeking a career in the private or civilian sector, or are expecting to be discharged soon, it may be a daunting task to find a job as a civilian. It can be especially difficult if you’ve been in the military for a long time or have only worked in the armed forces. To see how your military service, skills and experience translate to the civilian workplace, we invite you to use our Military Skills Translator. This online tool makes it easy to see how your rank and job title from any branch of the Armed Services can be translated into civilian skills and to a role here at Lowe’s.
