To make hiring easier, the company has shortened the length of the application and is enabling potential employees to apply directly from their smartphones or tablets.
"We want everyone to have an easy and convenient experience with The Home Depot, whether they're shopping with us or applying for a position," said Tim Crow, the retailer’s executive vice president for human resources.
Additionally, AT&T also announced the addition of new U.S.-based jobs.
The telecommunications company is planning to bring 3,000 jobs that were previously done overseas back to the U.S.
The announcement is part of a labor agreement the company worked out with union employees.
