JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Lowe's is looking to hire more than 3,000 employees in Florida, including hundreds in the Jacksonville area, as part of the retail chain's plan to help communities bounce back from Irma.

The chain is hosting eight job fairs across Northeast Florida on Thursday and Saturday in the hopes of hiring more than 200 people to fill seasonal, part-time and full-time positions locally. 

The full- and part-time positions -- including cashiers, loaders, stockers, customer service, delivery drivers and sales specialists -- offer competitive pay, benefits and a 10 percent employee discount.

Qualified candidates could receive on-the-spot job offers at these events, so don't forget to bring your Social Security card and a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license.
