Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, is planning to hire more than 70,000 full-time seasonal workers in the U.S. to fulfill holiday online orders.
It looks like that Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com Inc. is going on a hiring binge. THANKS!!!
The electronic commerce pioneer says this year it has converted 7,000 jobs from temporary positions to full time ones.
In July, Amazon said it would boost staff in 17 U.S. warehouses by adding more than 5,000 full-time jobs.
“So far this year, we have converted more than 7,000 temporary employees in the U.S. into full-time, regular roles and we’re looking forward to converting thousands more after this holiday season,” said Dave Clark, Amazon’s vice president of worldwide operations and customer service.
“Each year, seasonal jobs lead to thousands of long-term, full-time roles in our sites–jobs that offer great pay, benefits starting on day one and the chance for employees to further their education through our Career Choice program.”
