The Home Depot is hiring more than 100,00 employees.

The Home Depot is ramping up hiring for its busiest season.

The home improvement giant is looking to hire more than 100,000 employees as it gears up for spring, with full-time and part-time positions available across its stores and warehouses. The company, which typically hired about 80,000 employees for spring in recent past years, said that with its new, accelerated hiring process, applicants could receive a job offer within one day of applying.

The Home Depot will host avirtual career day event on Wed., Feb. 16, to help jobseekers find the right role and learn about growth opportunities once they join The Home Depot. During the event, attendees will hear from a variety of Home Depot leaders. Panel sessions will preview a day-in-the-life view of many of the open roles, career pathing possibilities and benefits.

The hiring news comes days after the Home Depot named Edward "Ted" Decker as CEO and president, effective March 1. Decker, a 22-year Home Depot veteran, will succeed Craig Menear, who will continue to serve as chairman.

"In today's climate, jobseekers are shopping for the best opportunity," said Eric Schelling, VP of global talent acquisition at The Home Depot. "At The Home Depot, they'll find a company that offers much more than a job and a paycheck. Jobseekers will find a values-based company that invests in them with our success sharing bonus program and gives them the opportunity to grow, similar to the approximately 90% of our store leaders who started as hourly associates. Additionally, jobseekers will also find upskilling programs that teach and expose them to new skills in other functions like software development, cyber security, data science, marketing, supply chain and finance.”

Jobseekers are encouraged, but not required, to apply to open roles on careers.homedepot.com ahead of the event.

At the end of the third quarter, the Home Depot operated a total of 2,317 stores in all 50 states, the District of ColumbiaPuerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin IslandsGuam, 10 Canadian provinces and Mexico.
