  • Amazon to hire over 100,000 seasonal employees
  • Positions may become full-time after holidays

New employees will join the more than 125,000 regular, full-time employees at Amazon’s more than 75 fulfillment centers across the country to help pick, pack and ship customers’ holiday orders. So far this year, Amazon has created tens of thousands of new full-time roles in its fulfillment and customer service centers.  

Last year, thousands of holiday positions were transitioned to regular, full-time roles after the holidays and the company said they plan to continue that trend this year. 

“We prepare year round for the holidays and we’re excited to hire for over 120,000 positions this season to help delight our customers,” said Dave Clark, Amazon Senior Vice President of Global Customer Fulfillment. “We look forward to welcoming back holiday employees who return year-after-year to Amazon and welcome new faces to the team, many of whom will continue on with regular, full-time roles with the company after the holidays.” 

Throughout the year on average, 90 percent of associates across the company’s U.S. fulfillment network are regular, full-time employees.
