Home Depot to Hire 2,000 in L.A.-area, Including San Pedro Location

Home Depot to hire 2,000 in Los Angeles area.

Home Depot announced Wednesday its plans to hire more than 80,000 employees nationwide, with 2,000 of those positions being filled right here in the greater Los Angeles area, including the company’s location on North Gaffey Street in San Pedro.

The surge comes as spring do-it-yourselfers flock to the nationwide store, District Manager John Cruz said.

Cruz said all positions are in-store, and range from the cashiers department to the need for department supervisors, but noted that as spring approaches, many of the hires will be in the paint and gardening departments.

And these positions aren’t just seasonal, Cruz said.

“Thousands of seasonal hires are likely to stay beyond the spring,” he said. “Last year, over half of our seasonal hires were promoted to permanent positions.”

San Pedro is home to one of the locations, 2115 N. Gaffey Street, across the area that will be hiring hundreds of employees, Cruz said.

“We encourage retirees and those transitioning from military to apply,” Cruz said. “We also encourage college graduates and veterans to apply. We have opportunities out there and we are basically looking for good people, people that are passionate about customer service and we encourage those who fit the bill to apply.”

The Home Depot, which has almost 2,000 stores in the United States, and over 340,000 employees, is adding workers as it benefits from surging home values in the past two years. As one executive for the company stated, “Spring is our Christmas.”
