HD plans to recruit 6,300 associates for its 180 stores across Canada. The spring season usually sees an uptick in home remodeling and renovations, making it the retailer’s most active season. The home supply retailer is hiring candidates to fill seasonal, full-time and part-time positions at HD stores, the Brampton Guardian notes.
