**Lowe’s Summer Internship Program**

Lowe\'s 2021 Summer Internship Program offers challenging assignments to undergraduate students, enhancing their understanding of the retail business world through valuable, hands-on experience with a FORTUNE® 50 company. The summer internship program begins with orientation in early June and concludes in early August. All internships are paid and housing is available for those that qualify. This role has potential for conversion into a full-time position for those that successfully complete the internship and upon candidate\'s graduation.

The internship will consist of a project-based assignment to broaden learning, experience, and organizational knowledge and business acumen. We are looking for people driven by potential. Dynamic individuals who are as inspiring as they are inspired. Sharp minds eager to take on new challenges and recognize new opportunities. Great collaborators who understand the power of “we”. People who push boundaries of what’s possible.

**Vendor Management Internship**

Vendor Management (VM) is an emerging area expected to deliver tremendous financial benefit to the company as well as centralize processes and support to provide a \"white glove\" service to our internal and external partners.

Potential areas of learning:

1. Evaluation of specific VM operational processes to identify efficiencies or changes in tools/processes. Operational processes could include Vendor Onboarding/Maintenance, Vendor Support or Vendor Services. This would encompass partnering with a vendor to follow and support through the specific process providing guidance and obtaining feedback to address improvements.

2. Evaluation and support for analytical and financial development efforts including the tiered Vendor Partner\'s Plus Program (VPP) or the Vendor Scorecard. Both VPP and the Vendor Scorecard will require partnership with specific selected vendors and merchants to further refine and develop analytical models leading to improved financial opportunities and solution design development.

3. Develop and/or refine a complete vendor holistic lifecycle model identifying the inputs, outputs, solutions, VM support and cross functional partner engagement to identify improvements for simplifying the vendor experience and increasing productivity.

Our Military Commitment

At Lowe's, our commitment to recognize, honor, and respect those who serve in our country's military is rooted in our history and informs the decisions we make today:

  • Lowe's was founded on the heels of World War II, by veteran Carl Buchan, whose leadership and vision helped us grow from a small hardware store in Wilkesboro, NC, into the FORTUNE 100® company we are today.
  • Lowe's is ranked #38 among GI Job's "Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers®".
  • Lowe's is part of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), working with military installation contacts to promote job opportunities to military spouses.
  • Lowe's is an Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Partner.
  • Lowe's offers extended benefits for employees serving in the military.

We regularly participate in a variety of military-sponsored events and job fairs across the country, looking for more people to join the Lowe's team of military veterans. At more than 14,000 strong, our military veteran employees work in roles across our organization, from management to retail and customer support. And we demonstrate our appreciation for them in many ways, including:

  • A 10% discount to all veterans during Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veterans Day weekends; and a 10% discount every day to all active, reserve, retired and disabled veterans who carry a valid, military-issued photo ID card.
  • Regular support for the military and the USO, including recent refurbishments to 16 USO centers across the U.S., to help welcome home our returning troops.
  • The Lowe's Employee Giving Campaign, which allows employees to set aside a portion of their paycheck, to benefit the USO and other organizations, which Lowe's will match 50 cents to the dollar.

The military instills leadership, a strong work ethic, and a passion for a job well done. It allows pioneering spirits to demonstrate their commitment to teamwork and problem solving. And these are the traits of a Lowe's employee. As you focus on your post-military career, consider exploring the employment opportunities at Lowe's.
