Amazon recently announced they will be hiring 150,000 people across the U.S. including 23,000 in California for the holiday season.
The jobs, which will include stowing, shipping, packing and shipping, have an average starting pay of $18 per hour and sign-on bonuses up to $3,000.
“We are proud to be offering a huge range of full-time, part-time, and now seasonal jobs with great pay and benefits,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Senior Vice President, Global Customer Fulfillment. “Our seasonal hiring helps us deliver on our promises to customers while also providing flexibility to our full-time employees during busy periods. Joining Amazon in one of our seasonal roles offers high-paying, part-time work, or a path to a full-time position, with benefits like our Career Choice program to help people advance their education and careers within Amazon or beyond.”
The jobs, many of which could lead full-time positions, will be at 250 fulfillment centers, sorting centers, regional air hubs, and delivery stations that opened in the United States this year.
“Creating opportunities for increased seasonal work is key as California and the nation continue to deal with interruptions in the supply chain,” said a spokesperson from CalChamber. “Through this effort, Amazon will help get more people back on the job this holiday season. This, along with Amazon’s broader investments during the pandemic is important to the California economy.”
