The Home Depot has started recruiting to fill more than 2,000 retail positions for the upcoming spring season.
Hiring will ramp up over the next several weeks on a market-by-market basis, store reps say, based on store needs and as spring weather approaches.
Though about half of the company's 2011 seasonal hires became permanent, more help is needed to prepare for the company's busiest time of the year.
“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 HR spokesman Tim Crow.
Home Depot stores will hire for 70,000 seasonal jobs across the company.
