Home Depot launches national hiring initiative

The Home Depot[R] has joined forces with the Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs to provide career opportunities for America’s service members who are interested in transferring their skills, knowledge and abilities into a successful second career. The Home Depot will work with the departments to link members of America’s military community with Home Depot stores across the nation. This effort, known as Operation Career Front, is intended to support America’s military job seekers, including veterans, separating active duty service members, National Guard members, Reservists and military spouses.

The Home Depot also wants to employ military spouses and other dependents. With its network of stores throughout the country, The Home Depot will work with its military associates to provide transfers in the cases of reassignment of duty stations, retirement or separation, depending on store and job availability.

Interested applicants can learn more about Operation Career Front and apply at one of the 2,000 One-Stop Career Centers around the country operated by the Department of Labor (www.servicelocator.org, http:// www.servicelocator.org/) or online at careers.homedepot.com/military. Job seekers interested in The Home Depot can complete an online application at an employment kiosk at their local store.
