I just came across this short documentary about Amazon's yearly Camperforce hiring events where they specifically look to recruit and hire RV owners to come and work at their fulfillment centers nationwide. Started after the housing crisis of 2008, Amazon now has these yearly hiring events for retirees and RV owners to come, set up camp and work for Amazon. Workers include many retirees in their 60-70's working through Amazon's Camperforce. Is this something you might be interested in doing this year, next or the future? #amazon #jobsearch
Amazon plans to open six new delivery stations sometime this year across the Dallas-Fort Worth area generating 500 full-time jobs!
The stations will also bring part-time jobs, with a starting wage of $15 per hour.
The delivery stations will serve as a go-between for fulfillment centers to customers' homes.
The sites are expected to open sometime later in 2021 and will be located at:
The mayors of both Arlington and Mansfield said in the release that they are excited for the new stations to open in their cities and provide hundreds of jobs.
Interesting video on what it's like working in an Amazon fulfillment center and how they're able to deliver almost anything within 2 days to their customers. Hint: it takes a lot of technology but even more workers to get it done. After watching the video discover more about the jobs, pay and benefits for working in an Amazon fulfillment center. #jobsearch #Amazon #warehouse
Amazon warehouse workers in Alabama appear to have rejected unionization by voting against the measure. The results are most likely going to be contested.
Are you for or against unions? Does it depend on the industry and type of job?
I enjoyed working for Amazon! Before the pandemic my role at Amazon was apart of the Flow team. We had a great relationship. We all knew our assignment. Before the Pandemic approached our facility. I was warned by a family member that worked for the Chief of Police NYPD. That there will be a Pandemic. I warned Amazon!. This has changed Amazon completely. This has cause a big change in how things is done. Seems kinda unfair. Still the work has to get done.
Amazon says it hopes to create more than 400 jobs with the opening of four new delivery stations — specialized processing centers designed to increase the efficiency of deliveries for customers in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
The stations — in Homestead, Kendall, and Miramar as well as Fort Lauderdale — are designed to ease same-day or even two-hour deliveries to residences in high-density neighborhoods.
“We’re continuously innovating to speed up delivery times for our customers,” said an Amazon spokesman via email. “This investment into the build-out of our network in South Florida will make faster and more efficient delivery possible. Customers will see the fastest available delivery options in search, on the product detail pages, and again at checkout.”
Amazon said the jobs start at $15 an hour and come with a variety of benefits. They are also designed to facilitate its Amazon Delivery Service Partners program, which lets individuals start their own small delivery businesses, and Amazon’s Flex independent contractor driver program..
