The Home Depot to hire 80,000 workers nationwide

Posted: Updated:

The Home Depot is expecting to hire more than 80,000 seasonal employees for what the company says is its busiest selling season.

The Home Depot announced Wednesday that it is hiring for the spring season. As both the company's busiest hiring and selling period, spring serves as The Home Depot's annual peak season, similar to the Christmas selling season for many retailers. This year, The Home Depot is hiring ten thousand more spring associates than it did last year to support anticipated sales growth in the spring.

"Spring is always a special season for us, when we can offer employment opportunities for literally tens of thousands of Americans," Tim Crow, executive vice president-Human Resources, said in a news release. "We find some of our best associates during our peak season, and many of them have built long, meaningful careers with us."

Jobs range from part-time to full-time and are available on a market-by-market basis based on individual store needs and geographical variance in climate. Job seekers can apply now at http://www.careers.homedepot.com

The Home Depot is also catering to those returning home from the military and veterans interested in a position. The Home Depot recently started its Online Military Skill Translator, a new tool designed to help translate and match an applicant's unique military skills with positions that might offer the best fit-- learn more at www.careers.homedepot.com/military.
