Amazon seeks to hire 150K employees for holidays

Seasonal, full-time and part-time roles are available across Amazon’s operations, with sign-on bonuses up to $3,000 in select locations.

Amazon is on a holiday hiring spree. The company said that it is hiring 150,000 employees throughout the United States in seasonal, full-time and part-time roles across its operations network.

A diverse range of roles — from packing and picking to sorting and shipping — are available to applicants from all backgrounds and experience levels. Employees can earn, on average, more than $19 per hour based on position and location. 

“We’re proud to offer a wide variety of roles for people of all backgrounds, with more than 150,000 roles available across the country” said John Felton, Amazon’s senior vice president of worldwide operations. “Whether someone is looking for some extra money for a few months or a long-term career, the holidays are a great time for people to join Amazon, and many of our seasonal employees return year-after-year or transition into full-time roles.”

Felton added, “Those who choose to stay with us will find a lot of opportunities to grow their careers, whether they take advantage of our free college tuition programs or seek out promotions across our network — this year alone, more than 20,000 front-line employees received promotions.”

Jobs in Amazon’s operations network include stowing, picking, packing, sorting, shipping customer orders and more, and are available in hundreds of cities and towns across America. These roles can be the start of a long-term career inside or outside the company. The flexibility of the jobs available come with a wide range of hours — full- and part-time — along with pay and benefits. Sign-on bonuses ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 are available in select locations.

“I’m an HR professional by trade and joined Amazon in a seasonal operations role when the company I worked for closed,” said Amazon employee Rose Deimler, who is now a senior human resources business partner at Amazon’s fulfillment center in Carlisle, Pa. “I was really just looking for a job to help pay the bills while I figured out my next step and, nearly 11 years later, I’ve grown the opportunity into a senior-level HR role with five direct reports. Now, I’m able to help other employees learn and grow within the company.”
