The company plans to hire 400 associates in Western Oregon. Those jobs will range from in-store associates to workers outside on the freight teams.
Spring is the busiest time of the year for the company, as people start prepping their gardens.
“Our temporary associates normally work about 120 days, but about 50 percent of them will convert to permanent positions,” said Laurie Wilson, local Home Depot HR Manager.
Nationwide the company is hiring 80,000 workers, which is 10,000 more than it hired last year.
