Home Depot announced Wednesday it plans to fill 80,000 positions nationwide as the spring selling season approaches.

In Connecticut, Home Depot is hiring more than 1,300 seasonal workers to help meet an expected increase in consumer demand at its 29 stores in the state.

"Spring is our peak hiring season, giving us the opportunity to find some of the best associates who are passionate about customer service," said Tim Crow, executive vice president of Human Resources for the home improvement retailer in a press release issued Wednesday.

The Home Depot website currently lists more than 16,000 jobs nationwide, with more than 1,300 in Connecticut, 359 in Massachusetts, and 71 in Rhode Island. Job seekers can research openings and apply online at www.careers.homedepot.com.

Another home improvement chain, Lowes, is also hiring ahead of its busy spring and summer months. The store will be hiring 340 workers across its 13 stores in Connecticut, according to an article by the Hartford Courant — and about 9,000 across the country.

If your a Veteran might as well go to Montville Hardware and buy your supplies as Home Depot doesn't recognize Vets except on Memorial and Veterans day. I found the're prices compare to HD and they have a VERY good staff to help you.

Well I guess part time jobs are better than nothing in this economy. I can't imagine them hiring full time as Obamacare would just raise prices. This is what the President meant by easing into the 30 hour work week. Anyone that votes for any Democrat deserves what you get.

REVMAN and they are up to something. It has to be the Oblundercare. Ct is the third largest sign up state for HC and then HD and Lowes have THIS many "temp" jobs? They DWARF Ma and RI, combined! 29 STORES, in little Ct.? They drove all the small guys out and their products SUCK. We have Spring Glen Hardware in Hamden and those guys are ACES! C what I did there, lol.
