Why Work at the Company?

As an employer of more than 30,000 veterans, we strive to be military-friendly through our culture and HR policies. We recognize that men and women with military experience are highly skilled, motivated and hardworking. That's why we launched our online military skills translator, which translates a veteran's unique military skills and matches them with positions that are the best fit. Veteran associates can also be part of our efforts to serve other veterans in need through Team Depot, our associate-led volunteer force. Since 2011, The Home Depot Foundation and Team Depot have invested more than a quarter of a billion dollars in veteran-related projects and enhanced nearly 40,000 veteran homes and facilities in about 1,500 cities.
