Amazon hiring 100k seasonal warehouse workers
Jump to section

Retail giant #Amazon just announced that they will be hiring 100k seasonal workers at various positions in their company. Due to the volume of positions and Amazon’s nationwide reach, that could mean there are vacancies near you!

Why is Amazon hiring so many workers?

With seasonal hiring one the rise many companies are bulking up their support for jobs in product transport, warehouse and customer facing positions. And Amazon is no exception! In order to support the influx of orders coming in through the holiday season, Amazon is also opening several new facilities across the country that will need to be operated by new staff.

What jobs is Amazon hiring for?

There are many great reasons to consider a job at Amazon. Not only do they offer a minimum hourly rate of $15 for these jobs, but they also offer benefits, even to seasonal employees. To find out if the jobs Amazon is offering now match your skills, read on below.

Seasonal picker jobs

An Amazon picker takes customer orders and picks out the individual items included in each order from within an Amazon warehouse. This job requires applicants to walk for extended periods of time, bend, and lift, so if you like to stay active during your workday this would be a great job for you.

Attention for detail is also a key attribute to have, as your main goal will be to accurately retrieve the products ordered by customers for multiple orders per day and prepare those orders for packing.

Seasonal packer jobs

Amazon packers focus on taking completed orders from their picker colleagues and packaging the orders both efficiently and carefully, to avoid products becoming damaged in transit. This job would require applicants to lift heavy products, and requires dexterity in order to repeatedly build boxes and consistently package them well.

If you’re someone who loves solving puzzles, suchs as “how do I best fit these two items in the same box” this job may be a good fit for you. Once you’ve completed packing, you would pass your completed order on to warehouse delivery workers.

Seasonal warehouse delivery jobs

An Amazon warehouse delivery worker takes completed orders from packers and loads up delivery trucks for delivery out to the customers who ordered them. These jobs would require a considerable amount of lifting and bending, so this would be best suited to those who would love to build up some strength during the workday.

You’ll also need a bit of puzzling skills for this job as well, as you’ll want to load up trucks to contain as many orders as possible, but also in a way that’s most convenient for your drivers.
