Home Depot launches recruitment drive
Published: 11 February 2020 - John King
The Home Depot is hiring 80,000 positions this spring in preparation for its busiest season of the year.
Over the next several months, jobseekers can apply for both full-time and part-time positions close to home, as 90% of the US population lives within 10 miles of a Home Depot store.
Many of the part-time positions will be staffed in The Home Depot's garden centre, which gives individuals a chance to work with their hands and help neighbours start spring projects. In addition to these positions, the company is hiring for overnight freight, merchandising and other customer service roles across store departments, as well as warehouse associates for its distribution centers. To help associates get up to speed quickly, the company provides innovative training programs and tools, including a gamified mobile app, e-learning, and on-the-job coaching.
"When you join The Home Depot, you're joining a winning team built on our core values and associate-centric culture," said Tim Hourigan, executive vice president of human resources. "More than 90% of our store leaders began their careers here as hourly associates, which is a testament to our commitment to growing the careers of our people."
