The new Home Depot call center in Kennesaw, GA planned to hire 700 people by 2015.
According to company officials and a report in the Marietta Daily Journal, the process is well ahead of schedule. "When we opened the center, we projected 700 jobs by 2015," said Katherine Ellison, spokeswoman for Home Depot. "Now we expect all 700 to be filled by the end of the month."
The Kennesaw facility, which opened in October, supplies online support for products offered through the company's website at homedepot.com. Employees at the center provide customer service - either by phone or online - for those looking to buy Home Depot products. Most of the jobs still remaining are related to the online chat function of the call center, although the positions range from entry level to supervisors. Home Depot may expand the number of employees for the Kennesaw, GA call center as demand increases.
The company continues to expand overall hiring in the Atlanta area as it seeks to fill 400 positions alone in the 9 Cobb County locations.
