Home Depot plans to hire about 900 part-time associates on Long Island and more than 80,000 nationwide as the home improvement retailer prepares for spring — the company’s busiest selling season.

Permanent and seasonal job openings include positions for cashiers as well as sales and operations. Each of the 21 stores on Long Island will be hiring about 40 employees depending on need, a company spokesman said Wednesday.

Home Depot said it offers profit-sharing, tuition assistance, a 401k and a discounted stock purchase plan to part-time and full-time permanent associates.
