Not everyone’s busy season is during the holidays, and as its spring crunch approaches, The Home Depot is moving to hire more than 100,000 new employees.
It will host a Virtual Spring Career Day event on Wednesday, February 16 to help jobseekers find a role with Home Depot, and learn about growth opportunities once they join the company, Home Depot stated. During the event, attendees will hear from Home Depot leaders including Crystal Hanlon, who began her Home Depot career as a cashier and today leads northern division stores as president. Hanlon has been named one of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women in business not long ago, Home Depot noted. Panel sessions will provide a day-in-the-life view of many open roles, career path possibilities and benefits. Attendees will have access to resources that cover the company’s efforts to give back to communities across the country and advance environmental sustainability as well.
Home Depot is encouraging but not requiring jobseekers to apply for open roles on careers.homedepot.com ahead of the event.
“In today’s climate, jobseekers are shopping for the best opportunity,” said Eric Schelling, Home Depot vp of global talent acquisition, in announcing the jobs initiative. “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% 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.”
