Military Overview



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:

We invite you to explore career opportunities at Lowe’s, as well as visit our military event calendar and our partners:

Transitioning Veterans


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.
