As retailers and shippers continue to staff up for Christmas and the holiday shopping season, Amazon is the latest company to announce its plans to ramp up its hiring efforts for the busiest shopping time of the year.
On Thursday, Amazon said it plans to hire workers for more than 120,000 seasonal positions across the country at fulfillment centers, “sortation centers” and customer service sites in 27 states, including Georgia.
“This is our favorite time of year—we love serving customers during the busy holiday season and we’re excited to bring on more than 120,000 seasonal employees this year to support growing customer demand,” said Mike Roth, Amazon vice president of global customer fulfillment, in a news release. “Last year alone, more than 14,000 seasonal employees stayed on in regular, full-time positions after the holidays and we expect to increase that number this year.”
