Home Depot to hire 80,000 for spring season

ATLANTA -- Atlanta-based The Home Depot says it has started filling more than 80,000 positions as it prepares for spring, the company's busiest selling season.

The company estimates it will hire 1,240 for its 62-store Atlanta market.

The Home Depot is now recruiting for positions both in its stores and distribution facilities, as the warm season approaches and customers begin to spruce up their lawns and tackle new home improvement projects, the company said in a press release.

From sales and cashiers to operations and online order fulfillment, opportunities available include both permanent part-time and seasonal positions, the company said.

"Spring is a great time to join The Home Depot, where you can work alongside a fun, energetic team that's passionate about the latest home improvement innovations and great customer service," said Tim Crow, executive vice president—Human Resources.

The Home Depot said time accrued during seasonal assignments applies to eligibility for benefits provided to permanent hourly associates, such as the company's "Success Sharing" profit-sharing program, 401(k) match and tuition assistance, if a seasonal associate transitions to a permanent position.
