Home Depot Is Taking a Different Approach to Curb Labor Shortage
The company is hiring more than 100,000 associates in anticipation of a busy spring season.
As a nationwide labor shortage continues to put pressure on some of the U.S.’s biggest companies, hiring managers have had to get creative when it comes to acquiring and retaining talent, whether it’s Arkansas’s $10,000 relocation offer or an Arizona CEO’s quit-incentivizing payout. Now, The Home Depot is mixing up its hiring strategy too; per the company’s website, applicants can look forward to an accelerated hiring process — and might even receive an offer within one day of applying.
In anticipation of a busy spring season, the world’s largest home-improvement retailer is hiring more than 100,000 flexible, full-time and part-time positions, including customer service and sales, store support, freight, merchandising and warehouse associates. The company will host a Virtual Spring Career Day on Wednesday, Feb. 16, where prospective applicants can learn about the various available roles and growth opportunities. Attendees will also have access to panel sessions featuring company leadership on topics like a “day-in-the-life-view” of open roles, career planning and benefits.
