ATLANTA, March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The Home Depot® is hiring 80,000 associates for its busy spring season with a new hiring technology built by the company’s in-house engineers.

Approximately 2,000 U.S. stores and more than 100 distribution centers have seasonal, part-time and full-time positions available, and the new technology helps hiring teams move candidates through the hiring process faster.

Last spring, the company launched Candidate Self Service, another homegrown technology that allows store and supply chain candidates to schedule their own interviews. Since its launch, nearly one million candidates have used the technology.

“Technology is at the forefront of everything we do at The Home Depot, and that includes taking care of our associates,” said Tim Hourigan, executive vice president of human resources. “We continue to invest in technology so we can help candidates control their own journey and welcome new hires into our family faster than ever.”

Opportunities are available across the store and distribution centers in a variety of departments, including overnight freight, garden, customer service and merchandising. Applicants should visit careers.homedepot.com for the 15-minute application, or text HOMEDEPOT to 52270 for a link to apply to local positions.
