If you're looking for a job, several metro Atlanta companies are making big hires this March. The following are a few that have posted large numbers of openings in a wide variety of skill sets, including links so you can apply:
The Home Depot
The company announced on March 2 that it's hiring more than 80,000 temporary employees to work in its stores and distribution centers in the busy spring season. This is a common occurrence this time of year for the Atlanta-based home supplies company, and 1,200 of the jobs will be in metro Atlanta. Although the positions are temporary, you may have the chance to get your foot in the door and become a permanent employee. About half the seasonal hires last year went on to become permanent employees, the company said.
They're looking for employees for positions such as customer service and sales, lot associates, freight and receiving, store support, cashiers and merchandise display set-up. Apply online if you're interested in one of these positions.
