DENVER (CBS4) – Home Depot says it’s hiring for 800 jobs in the Denver area. The positions are described by the company as “temporary seasonal.”

The hourly pay is between $8.80 and $10.20. For successful applicants who get a foot in the door, good things can happen.

“They do have the potential of going part-time or full-time depending on what the stores needs are,” said Melissa Moore, a hiring supervisor for the Denver store at 500 South Santa Fe.

Moore says all 51 stores in the metro area are hiring for positions like cashier, freight handler and garden center worker.

“They have great training,” said Jiancarlo Ulloa, a recent permanent part-time hire at the Denver store.

A recent arrival from Costa Rica with a work visa, Ulloa speaks Spanish as well as English. His bi-lingual talents help in his capacity as a customer relations specialist. Before he applied, he checked out the workplace

“I visit this store before and I like the environment, that’s important,” he explained.

The temporary seasonal positions the company currently needs to fill typically work about 20 hours per week for 120 days.

There’s already a lot of interest. Home Depot is expecting several thousand applications.

The application asks what stores applicants would be willing to work at. Moore says by marking as many as possible, it boosts the applicant’s odds.

Applications can be found at the job hiring kiosks at each store and online.
