Amazon in big hiring initiative with 30,000 open jobs
The e-tail giant is aggressively hiring full-time, part-time, and seasonal employees.
On Tuesday, Sept. 17, Amazon is hosting a series of Amazon Career Day events where anyone can learn more about 30,000 full-and part-time jobs at Amazon locations across the country. Open positions are available in corporate roles at the company’s 18 Tech Hubs and two North American headquarters, as well as within customer fulfillment, delivery, and retail facilities.
Jobs are also available for all experience, education, and skill levels, including entry-level roles at Amazon’s fulfillment centers as well as software development engineers and computer vision scientists. All candidates will have access to on-the-job training and upskilling opportunities as part of $700 million Upskilling 2025 corporate retraining initiative the company launched in July 2019.
Amazon will hold six Amazon Career Day events across the U.S. in Arlington, Va. – the site of the company’s second headquarters in North America – as well as Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, and Seattle. At the events, the e-tailer will also provide more information about how to start a business delivering packages or selling online with startup incentives from Amazon.
Additionally, Amazon is starting to hire for tens of thousands of seasonal roles for its operations network in the coming weeks to meet increased demand for the holiday season. Candidates interested in these positions, which pay $15/hour, can apply online.
“Amazon has created more than 300,000 new jobs in the U.S. over the last decade – and we’re proud to continue investing and creating opportunities for people across the country,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “These are jobs with highly competitive compensation and full-benefits from day one, as well as training opportunities to gain new skills in high-demand fields such as robotics and machine learning.”
