Home DepotATLANTA—The Home Depot plans to hire more than 80,000 associates nationwide for the spring to ensure its nearly 2,000 stores and distribution centers are staffed and ready for the company’s busiest selling season.

Opportunities include sales, operations and cashier positions across all departments, from the lumber aisle to the Pro desk to outside garden, the retailer said. In addition, store merchandising execution teams will hire new associates to set product merchandising displays, help maintain store appearance and keep products customer ready. The retailer’s 75 distribution facilities will also add associates, from rapid distribution centers that replenish stores to the company’s three new direct fulfillment centers that fulfill customers’ online orders.

More than half of Home Depot’s seasonal hires transitioned to permanent positions last year.
