ATLANTA -- The Home Depot announced it has begun recruiting to fill more than 70,000 seasonal positions as it prepares for spring, the company's busiest selling and hiring season.
"Just as the Christmas rush and holiday hiring ends for many retailers, we begin recruiting for spring seasonal associates to help customers during our busiest selling season," said Tim Crow, executive vice president for Human Resources. "And a seasonal job at The Home Depot can often lead to a regular position if you're passionate about customer service."
In fact, about half of The Home Depot's 2011 seasonal hires stayed on in permanent positions as cashiers, sales associates, lot associates and garden associates, to name a few.
Job seekers can begin applying online now at www.Careers.HomeDepot.com. Hiring will begin ramping up over the next several weeks on a market-by-market basis, based on the needs of individual stores and as spring climates begin to approach.
The Home Depot will also usher in the season with door-buster prices on hundreds of the most sought after spring products, including a variety of live goods and lawn care, outdoor power, eco-friendly gardening products, patio and grills.
