More than 100,000 people will get hired at the two top home improvement chains in the U.S. during this year’s spring selling season. Home Depot has announced it plans to hire 70,000 temporary workers this year, while Lowes will add 40,000 seasonal workers during 2012. Home Depot says many of the jobs will likely turn into permanent positions. About half of Home Depot’s 2011 seasonal hires stayed on in permanent positions.
