The Home Depot is hiring 750 workers to fill seasonal spring jobs at Baltimore-area stores.

The home improvement retailer is preparing for its busy spring selling season by recruiting 80,000 workers chain-wide, the company said Wednesday.

Home Depot, with $70.4 billion in sales and more than 2,200 stores in all 50 states, Canada and Mexico, said about half of last year's seasonal hires became permanent employees. The chain also has a placement program designed for returning military personnel and veterans.
