Home Depot, the world's largest home improvement retailer based, has begun filling more than 1,200 positions at 62 stores across metro Atlanta.
The 1,240 new hires are part of the company's preparations for spring, which is the store's busiest selling season.
"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.
From retirees and college students looking for extra income to veterans easing back into civilian life, The Home Depot offers more than a short-term opportunity. 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, 401k match and tuition assistance, if a seasonal associate transitions to a permanent position.
