Home Depot says many of those seasonal hires turned into regular positions.
The company says anyone interested in one of the seasonal jobs should apply now. Returning members of the military and veterans are especially encouraged to apply.
In order to apply for jobs in our area, job candidates should visit Home Depot's website . They should select "In-Store Hourly" from the drop down menu and then enter Detroit and click "Search."
Keep in mind, however, that available positions vary by store.
