In need of a job this spring or summer?

Within 24-hours following the announcement several 'Toy's R Us' stores will be closing their doors as the company deals with bankruptcy problems, comes some positive news that hardware store Lowe's IS hiring.

The company plans to hire about 1,200 in the New York/New Jersey area and 53,000 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees across the nation in an announcement Wednesday.

In January people and businesses may typically do more indoor projects but as we get closer to spring in March and then into the summer, there'll be an increased demand for product at hardware stores.

The warmer weather in spring also brings people to stores like Lowe's or Home Depot for plants, flowers, statues or other yard necessities or things to spruce up your place outside a little bit.

At the Jersey Shore there are Lowe's stores in Eatontown, Holmdel, Howell, Brick and Toms River.

If you're looking to apply at Lowe's, here's how to do so.
