Home Depot Stepping Up Hiring

As more and more people scramble to find employment in a difficult economy, one company is hanging the “We’re Hiring” banner. Home Depot has just announced that it will soon be hiring 70,000 seasonal workers for the spring. This is the company’s busiest time of the year, as many people work on their homes in the warmer weather.

Those seeking positions can apply at the Home Depot website and hiring will be picking up the pace in the coming weeks. Tim Crow, the executive vice president of Human Resources explains that temporary job openings can sometimes turn into full time jobs, and that people should think of their temporary opportunities in this light.

In 2011, approximately half of the temporary job opportunities did turn into permanent positions for those who were employed.
