Home Depot hiring 80000 seasonal workers



Home Depot (HD) is on a hiring spree as the company boosts seasonal staffing for its busiest selling period.

The nation's largest home improvement retailer said it plans to hire more than 80,000 sales associates nationwide to ensure that Home Depot's nearly 2,000 stores are staffed and ready to welcome spring 2016.

The hiring, roughly equivalent to spring season staffing in recent years, includes job opportunities in sales, operations and cashier positions across all departments, the company said. Merchandising teams also seek new associates to set product displays, maintain store appearance and help keep products customer-ready, Home Depot said.

Applications should be submitted online at Home Depot's careers site,, the company said.

The company estimates that more than half of seasonal hires transition to permanent Home Depot jobs. The working time that new hires accrue during the seasonal assignments will apply to eligibility for benefits if they transition to permanent positions, the company said.

"There's no better time to join our team than spring, whether you're a college student, recent grad or a veteran hoping to build a career, a retiree who wants a fund job, or anyone who simply enjoys home improvement," said Tim Crow, Home Depot's executive vice president-Human Resources.

Atlanta-based Home Depot in December reaffirmed its sales and earnings-per-share guidance for fiscal year 2015. The company forecast an approximately 5.7% increase in sales for the year, with earnings per share rising roughly 14% to $5.36.

Home Depot also projected total sales of approximately $101 billion for the year.

The company is scheduled to report its fourth-quarter financial earnings on Feb. 23. The consensus forecast of financial analysts surveyed by S&P Capital IQ projects earnings per share of $1.10 on sales of nearly $20.4 billion.
