Home Depot has begun hiring more than 80,000 seasonal positions -- 180 in El Paso -- for the company's busiest selling season: spring.
This is the home improvement retailer's annual peak season, similar to the Christmas selling season for many retailers.
Home Depot is planning to hire 10,000 more spring associates than it did last year to support anticipated sales growth in the spring.
"Spring is always a special season for us, when we can offer employment opportunities for literally tens of thousands of Americans," said Tim Crow, executive vice president of human resources. "We find some of our best associates during our peak season, and many of them have built long, meaningful careers with us."
Job opportunities range from part time to full time and are available on a market-by-market basis based on individual store needs and geographical variance in climate.
Job-seekers may begin by applying online at careers.homedepot.com
For returning military men and women and veterans who are interested in a position, the home improvement retailer recently launched its Online Military Skills Translator, a new tool designed to help translate and match an applicant's unique military skills with positions that might offer the best fit.
It also has partnered with military-focused career fairs and will be participating in events throughout the year. Both the skills translator and 2013 events calendar may be found at careers.homedepot.com/military
Technical school and college students, as well as retirees, are encouraged to apply.
El Paso has three Home Depots: 11360 Rojas; 7545 N. Mesa; and 12221 Montwood.
