|Lowe’s Meet and Greet at HVAF
Five Lowe’s Home Improvement Store call center employees visited HVAF on Friday, March 13, for a meet and greet with veterans who are interested in working for the company at its new call center located on the west side of Indianapolis.
The meet and greet provided an opportunity for veterans and employers to meet face-to-face to discuss available positions.
Four of the five Lowe’s employees in attendance are veterans and talked about their own personal experiences and what Lowe’s has to offer.
Employer ‘Meet and Greets’ are an opportunities for employers to share information to a group of veteran candidates regarding job openings, pay rates, benefits, training, etc. It’s a chance for interested candidates to meet one on one with recruiters and learn more about the employment opportunities at that particular company. The Employer Meet and Greet lasts for an hour.
“This opportunity provides a great value for our veterans who are exploring employment by linking them up with employers that are actively hiring,” says HVAF Employment Specialist Chasiti Herring. Veterans had the ability to network and learn about a company to better determine whether or not the position is a good fit. “Having recruiters come in made the experience very relatable for fellow veteran job seekers. Our veterans were able to learn how their military skills could translate to the employment opportunities that Lowe’s has available.”
HVAF is planning its next Meet and Greet for April.
