Homegrown Technology Helps Hire 80,000

March 05, 2019

Convenience is key when applying for a job. And this spring, it’s easier than ever to join The Home Depot team with tools built by the company’s in-house engineers. 

As the company hires 80,000 new associates across the U.S., it’s launching a new tool that helps hiring teams move candidates through the hiring process faster. 

This tool is the latest in a series of improvements to Home Depot’s candidate experience. Last year, it launched a technology that allows job seekers to self-schedule their in-person interviews and since its launch, nearly one million candidates have used it. 

“Technology is at the forefront of everything we do at The Home Depot, and that includes taking care of our associates,” said Tim Hourigan, executive vice president of human resources. “We continue to invest in technology so we can help candidates control their own journey and welcome new hires into our family faster than ever.”

Opportunities are available across the store and distribution centers in a variety of departments, including overnight freight, garden, customer service and merchandising. Applicants should visit careers.homedepot.com for the 15-minute application, or text HOMEDEPOT to 52270 for a link to apply to local positions.
