Though the 405 positions available in Memphis are seasonal, Home Depot said the seasonal hires might turn into permanent positions. About half of Home Depot's seasonal hires transitioned into regular positions with the company in 2012.
In addition, for those returning military and veterans who are interested in a position, 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 Careers.HomeDepot.com/Military.
Home Depot (HD) said the jobs include both part-time and full-time positions and are available on a market-by-market basis based on individual store needs and geographical variance in climate.
Home Depot shares were down 0.3% in premarket trading Wednesday. At $66.20, the stock is less than $2 off its 52-week high.
