Amazon said that the new hiring will help in packing, shipping, and sorting orders, working in part-time and full-time roles. The company is already planning to hire 1,00,000 people in the holiday season, given the increase in orders.
The world’s largest e-commerce company, Amazon (Amazon) will give jobs to one lakh people. Amazon said on Monday that it would hire another 100,000 people with an increase in online orders. Amazon said that the new hiring will help in packing, shipping and sorting orders, working in part time and full time roles. Amazon said that the jobs are not related to its holiday hiring. Let us know that the company had already hired 175,000 people earlier this year.
Amazon said it needs people in package sorting centers and other facilities in 100 new warehouses. Alicia Boller Davis, who oversees Amazon’s warehouse, said the company is offering sign-on bonuses of up to $ 1,000 in some cities where it can be difficult to find workers in Detroit, New York, Philadelphia, and Louisville, Kentucky. Amazon’s starting salary is 15 dollars (more than Rs 1100) per hour.
Amazon said last week that it needed 33,000 people to fill corporate and technical jobs. It earned record profits and revenue between April and June, as more people bought groceries during the epidemic.
Actually, things are in a mess in Amazon’s warehouse.
In view of the holiday shopping crowd, Amazon plans to prepare beforehand. The busiest shopping day, Prime Day will be held this year after being postponed from July. The company is already planning to hire 100,000 people in the holiday season, given the increase in orders.
