NOW HIRING: Home Depot readies for busiest selling season of the year

(WOIO) - The Home Depot®, the world's largest home improvement retailer, 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 HERE. 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.
