KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- With Spring just around the corner, many homeowners are already thinking about summertime projects - and the Home Depot wants to be ready. On Wednesday, the home improvement superstore announced it would hire more than 400 people for the Spring season.

The company said it has started accepting applications for the upcoming season. Prospective candidates can even apply online at http://careers.homedept.com. Once there, select "In-Store Hourly" in Knoxville and click "Search."

Returning members of the military and veterans looking for work can now take advantage of Home Depot's new Online Military Skills Translator.
