SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – The Home Depot is hoping to fill hundreds of open positions in the Salt Lake City area.

Over 1,100 part and full-time positions will focus on customer service, filling online orders picked up curbside or in store, unpacking overnight freight, and merchandising. The Home Depot says the positions will support its busy spring season.

Available positions will vary by store. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply by texting JOBS to 52270 or visiting the Home Depot online.

The Home Depot offers specialized resources and programs for military associates and their spouses, like customized benefits, networking, coaching, and transitional programs. They also guarantee employment opportunities to associates who are spouses of relocating members of the military.

The company recently relaxed its mask guidelines, saying fully vaccinated customers and associates are no longer required to wear face coverings, except when mandated by state and local ordinances.
