Home Depot to Hire 6,300 Associates in Canada for Spring Season
Home Depot said Wednesday it will hire 6,300 associates in Canada to support its spring busy season, down from last year's plan for 6,700 employees. Home Depot and peer Lowe's have been a rare bright spot in the retail sector as they continue to benefit from the U.S. housing recovery. Rising home prices and improvements in home construction and new home sales have led homeowners to open their wallets for remodeling projects or big-ticket items. The home improvement retailer said it will hire full-time, part-time and seasonal workers across its 180 Canada locations.
