ATLANTA — The Home Depot on Wednesday announced that it would hire up to 450 people in Maine as it gears up for the busy spring season.

The Atlanta-based home improvement company currently operates 11 stores in Maine, from Biddeford to Bangor, which employ roughly 1,600 people, according to a company spokeswoman.

The new hires are part of a nationwide effort to hire 80,000 hourly employees in time for what is traditionally its busiest selling season, according to a news release.

These positions are seasonal, but a company spokeswoman said the company aims to keep on as many of these hires permanently as possible.

Candidates interested in applying should visit Home Depot’s careers website and search for jobs at their nearest store.

For veterans, Home Depot has a special website — — that helps match specific military skills to positions within the company.
