Adaptable, talented, highly motivated, creative and reliable – these are just a few of the qualities associated with military spouses. We want to help military spouses reach their full potential and realize their career goals by making available meaningful and rewarding employment opportunities.
Our work with military spouses led to The Home Depot being named one of Military Spouse magazine’s “Top 50 Military-Friendly® Employers” for four consecutive years, starting in 2013.
At The Home Depot, our associates have a strong voice within the organization, too. One of our associate-run resource groups — Military Appreciation Group also known as MAG — is dedicated strictly to supporting active military associates, deployed reservists and their families. One of the biggest issues veterans face when returning home is making that successful transition back to the civilian world. MAG helps with that, and develops programs to ease.
2017 is the sixth consecutive year that The Home Depot has sponsored the Orange Honors Essay contest, powered by Victory Media. The entrants had to write a 750-1250 word essay and answer the question: “How would earning a college degree positively impact your life?”
We want to thank all of the military spouses that entered for a chance to win $10,000 towards their college education. We are reviewing the essay entries and will announce the winner at the end of July! Stay tuned!
