Amazon will be hiring seasonal employees for its fulfillment centers and delivery hubs – and paying at least $15 per hour.
The e-commerce retail titan is looking for more than 100,000 seasonal workers for its customer fulfillment and delivery facilities nationwide.
Once hired, workers take advantage of the new $15/hour minimum wage, weekly paychecks for seasonal jobs and flexible shift opportunities.
“For those who are looking for short-term roles to help pay for gifts or supplement other income, this is a great opportunity to try a role with Amazon for the first time. We also have team members who return to work at Amazon during the holidays year after year,” said Dave Clark, SVP for Amazon Operations.
Seasonal workers will help fulfill customer orders, sort packages, dispatching items on the delivery trucks, and perform hundreds of other operations during the holiday sales season.
“Since the $15 minimum wage announcement, we are seeing a great response from job applicants and are encouraged in our early efforts to lead in pay for hourly employees,” Clark said.
On October 2nd, Amazon announced that it is increasing its minimum wage to $15 an hour for all full-time, part-time, temporary (including those labor forces hired through an agencies), and seasonal employees across the United States. The new Amazon $15 minimum wage will benefit more than 250,000 Amazon employees as well as over 100,000 seasonal employees who will be hired at Amazon sites across the nation this upcoming holiday shopping season.
Within a couple of days of the $15 minimum salary per hour announcement, more than 70,000 applications were completed for Amazon’s customer fulfillment roles. Applicants interested in seasonal jobs can learn more and apply online at www.AmazonDelivers.Jobs.
