Any word on how the hiring has gone at Lowe's. Rumor has it they have had trouble getting employees that live here at the beach. Heard it was due to criminal records and many not able to pass the drug test. Anybody know if they are still looking.

They are still hiring. They have a bunch of part time positions available. I am still waiting to hear about a full time position that I applied and interviewed for. They have to have 3 qualified candidates before they can pick the person who gets the job.

They have been hiring for a long time you would have thought the positions would have been filled already. Guess it goes to show some people aren't all that interested in working. I'm going to apply.

There was about 130 positions that needed to be filled.You'd think with all these people whining about the lack of jobs,people would be down on their knees begging for work.They ran an add in the Coastland Times for about a month and like the OP,I heard they are having a hard time finding people who can pass the drug tests.

The quality of people on this beach has really gone down hill in recent years,especially in KDH.These are the same people,who complain about the foreigners taking "their" jobs.I'm so thankful we have them.At least their trying,while the rest of these bums are dealing drugs,drawing welfare,and continuously applying for unemployment extensions.

It's pathetic!

Tom you hit it on the head. I run a business here and people always ask me why half my crew is polish? Because every American I've hired on the beach doesn't show up on time, rude to customers, lied about background, can't pass drug tests, etc. I'm tired of paying for their screenings. On the beach I require them to pay for their back check and drug screen if they want to apply. Over the bridge I have 4 Americans that work great every day, on time, happy customers, etc.
These scums on the beach want to get paid for nothing instead of working for it. Then they want to suck up our tax dollars for wic, unemployment, welfare. Same with letting all these illegal foreigners have babies and we pay for it giving them free healthcare. Throw them back over the border til they show a visa or design a system that they can get visas and pay taxes instead of us paying for their hospital bills, education, food, etc. Obama just makes it easier for them. It's a real problem. Next candidates are nothing to write home about either.

I think the drug testing and back ground check makes it tough for them to fill positions! It's a shame that people would rather do drugs instead of get a job!!

I think to apply for unemployment or wellfare you should have to pass a drug test. Tired of seeing people on government assistance shit faced and still receiving benefits.

I think back to all the talk about how this store was such a good thing for the OBX. How is was better to ruin our beach because it would provide jobs to the people who live here. It will be ironic that this store that will take money away from local businesses will not have many local people working in it. Maybe a poor decision after all.

It will not be Lowes fault if the local druggies around here don't get hired, I'm glad they go to the trouble of screening out the dopers. As far as the place ruining anything...PULESSE...get over yourself. That store is the best looking Lowes store I've ever seen. I know many people who can't wait for it to open. All the rest is mere speculation. What if...just maybe if...the competition results in better prices, more courteous employess at competing locations, and less fuel burned to get to the HD store for everyone south of KDH. Now if you're just knocking it because you work at HD or Ace...work harder and can the attitude and you'll be fine...but you seem so kooky and "out there" I doubt you can do it. So you can also just not go there. Let's see what that choice does when the place opens

obviously, smoking some weed doesn't stop them from wanting and trying to find a job.

i wonder how many alcoholics will be working there. or prescription drug abusers.

my husband had an interview with Lowes 10 days ago and has not heard from them. By the way he is NOT a drug addict or smokes pot, just wants a job. You folks talking down the local folks obviously have not met the many GOOD people that live here. Shame on you for downing the whole OBX.
