Home Depot said Wednesday it will hire 405 temporary positions in the Memphis area for its upcoming spring season.
The Atlanta-based home improvement retailer said that spring is its busiest hiring and selling season, similar to the winter holiday season at other retailers.
Home Depot is expected to hire 80,000 seasonal workers across the nation for the spring season — up from about 70,000 a year ago. It cited expectations of sales growth.

Though the 405 positions available in Memphis are seasonal, Home Depot said the seasonal hires might turn into permanent positions. About half of Home Depot's seasonal hires transitioned into regular positions with the company in 2012.
In addition, for those returning military and veterans who are interested in a position, Home Depot recently launched its Online Military Skills Translator to help match unique military skills with positions within the company. Both the skills translator and a calendar of military hiring events can be found at Careers.HomeDepot.com/Military.
Home Depot (HD) said the jobs include both part-time and full-time positions and are available on a market-by-market basis based on individual store needs and geographical variance in climate.
Home Depot shares were down 0.3% in premarket trading Wednesday. At $66.20, the stock is less than $2 off its 52-week high.
