New Tech Tools Help Home Depot Hire 80,000

February 14, 2018

Convenience is key when applying for a job, and this spring it’s simpler than ever to join The Home Depot thanks to recent enhancements to its application process.

As the company hires 80,000 new associates across the U.S., it’s launching a new tool that allows job seekers to self-schedule their in-person interviews. The tool is the latest in a series of improvements to The Home Depot’s candidate experience. Last year it sped up the application process by as much as 80 percent with its 15-minute application, Mobile Apply and Text-to-Apply capabilities.

“Just as we’re continuously evolving to meet the changing expectations of our customers, we’re harnessing new technologies to do the same for job seekers,” said Tim Hourigan, EVP – Human Resources. “This consumer-like experience helps us hire the best talent to serve our customers.”

Listen to Hourigan discuss his commitment to creating a culture where associates thrive:
