Home Depot to hire 2,000 temporary workers in Los Angeles area

Home improvement chain Home Depot Inc. is looking to fill 2,000 temporary jobs in the Los Angeles area and 70,000 positions nationwide in advance of spring, its busiest season.

"Just as the Christmas rush and holiday hiring ends for many retailers, we begin recruiting for spring seasonal associates," Tim Crow, the company's executive vice president for human resources, said in a statement.

Crow said a seasonal job at the Georgia-based chain can lead to a regular position. Last year, about half of the seasonal hires snagged permanent jobs as cashiers, sales associates and garden associates, among other positions.

It was unclear whether or not the Glendale location will be hiring.

Hiring will begin ramping up in the next few weeks. People interested in a job can apply online at www.careers.homedepot.com.
