To prepare for its busiest time of the year, Home Depot is hiring 450 seasonal workers at its stores throughout Charlotte.

The local hiring is part of a company-wide effort to take on 80,000 employees for the spring selling season, the Atlanta-based home improvement retailer said in a statement Thursday. Home Depot is hiring for part-time and full-time jobs in sales, operations and order fulfillment, among other areas.

Home Depot’s hiring comes one month after the retailer’s competitor, Mooresville-based Lowe’s, announced plans to take on over 1,100 seasonal workers in the Charlotte area. Company-wide, Lowe’s is hiring 45,000 seasonal employees across its U.S. footprint.

Home Depot is the world’s largest home improvement retailer, with 2,278 across its entire footprint.
