Home Depot adding 80K workers

Home Depot, the home improvement retailer said Tuesday that it has started hiring 80,000 part-time and seasonal workers ahead of its busiest time of the year.

The big box retail chain says it expects a surge in store traffic as the weather warms and homeowners start new projects.

Home Depot is hiring sales associates, cashiers and people to fill online orders. It says the openings are ideal for retirees and students looking for extra income, as well as veterans transitioning into civilian life.

The jobs are part-time and seasonal, though the hours could count towards qualifying for benefits if temporary employees become full time.

Home Depot said wages will vary depending on location and individual experience, but a spokesman said the company pays above the average retail rate and minimum wage.

Home Depot has openings in most U.S. states, with the bulk of them concentrated on the coasts and the Great Lakes region.

The Georgia based chain is “the world’s largest home improvement specialty retailer with stores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, 10 Canadian provinces, and Mexico.”
