The Home Depot plans to hire 135 salespeople at its stores on Oahu as part of a nationwide push to add 80,000 workers for the spring selling season, the company announced Wednesday.

The company is encouraging students, retirees, veterans and reservists to apply.

"For veterans and reservists interested in employment, The Home Depot’s online military skills translator can help match unique military skills to positions within the company," according to a news release from the company.
