Home Depot to hire 225 Boise-area workers
The Home Depot, the home improvement and building supply retail chain, announced Wednesday it plans to hire 80,000 seasonal workers across the country – and 225 in the Boise area -- to kick off the spring season.
Chris Giallanza, a spokesperson for the chain, said many seasonal jobs could become full-time positions. “In fact, about half of The Home Depot's seasonal hires transitioned into regular positions with the company last year,” Giallanza said.
For returning military and veterans who are interested in a position, The Home Depot recently launched its Online Military Skills Translator to help match unique military skills with positions within the company. Both the skills translator and a calendar of military hiring events can be found at www.careers.homedepot.com/military.
Seasonal associates will be assigned responsibilities based on their previous retail or home improvement experience and based on the needs of individual stores.
