The Home Depot is hiring for flexible, full-time and part-time positions including customer service/sales, store support, freight, merchandising and warehouse associates.
The company will host a Virtual Spring Career Day event on Wed., Feb. 16 to help jobseekers find the right role for them and learn about growth opportunities once they join The Home Depot. During the event, attendees will hear from a variety of Home Depot leaders including Crystal Hanlon, who began her Home Depot career as a cashier and today leads northern division stores as president and was named one of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women in business in recent years. Panel sessions will preview a-day-in-the-life view of many of the open roles, career pathing possibilities, and benefits.

“In today’s climate, jobseekers are shopping for the best opportunity,” said Eric Schelling, vice president of global talent acquisition at The Home Depot. “At The Home Depot, they’ll find a company that offers much more than a job and a paycheck. Jobseekers will find a values-based company that invests in them with our success sharing bonus program and gives them the opportunity to grow, similar to the approximately 90 percent of our store leaders who started as hourly associates. Additionally, jobseekers will also find upskilling programs that teach and expose them to new skills in other functions like software development, cyber security, data science, marketing, supply chain and finance. When jobseekers choose to join The Home Depot, their career possibilities become endless.”
The Home Depot offers a wide range of health and personal benefits for every stage of life, including tuition reimbursement, company performance-based cash bonus program, paid family leave, back-up dependent care, 401(k) savings plan with company match, a discounted company stock purchase program and more.
