Job hunting? Home Depot hiring 80,000 for spring

The home improvement giant said today it’s hiring more 80,000 temporary workers nationwide in anticipation of its big spring selling season, the busiest time of the year for the company.

Spokesman Stephen Holmes said the company will try to keep as many as it can for regular positions.

Spring is busiest for the company as consumers ramp up yard work, including planting in gardens, building decks and pruning trees, the Associated Press said. Consumers also take on indoor projects, such as painting and installing laminate and hardwood flooring.
