Amazon hires 70,000 Workers for Black Friday and Holiday Shopping Season

Retailers are already busy preparing for the critical Holiday shopping season. Amazon announced today to hire over 70,000 workers for the Holiday season. Amazon will likely have new record breaking order numbers during Black Friday and the Holiday shopping season. To handle the demand the online retail giant is each year hiring tons of temporary workers. Amazon hires this year 40% more workers than last year.

On average, seasonal employees earn 94 percent of Amazon fulfillment center employee starting wages and are eligible for health care benefits. Amazon says that thousands of these workers can expect to be hired full-time.

Since the start of the financial recession in September 2008, Amazon has added more than 40,000 jobs in the U.S. across all parts of the company.

This year Black Friday is rather late falling on November 29th. In 2012, Black Friday was on November 23rd. Retailers will have four full weeks to please you with special Black Friday 2013 sales until the culmination of the actual Black Friday and the encore on Cyber Monday 2013 (December 2nd).

According to Black Friday Countdown there are 58 days until Black Friday 2013. We will again provide full analysis and guidance of Black Friday Ads and Deals in our Black Friday Hub .
