Don't Miss: Amazon 12 Days of Deals Sale

Amazon hires 20% more workers for the Holiday season than last year.

Amazon today announced it is creating more than 120,000 seasonal positions across its U.S. network of fulfillment centers, sortation centers and customer service sites this holiday season. This is an increase of 20% compared to last year. We already predicted that the Amazon Black Friday 2016 sale will be the biggest in the retailer's history. 

The new large hiring spree is supporting that assumption.

Amazon has converted 14,000 seasonal positions into regular, full-time positions after the holidays and the company expects to increase that number this year.

“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. “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.”

Throughout the year on average, nearly 90 percent of associates across the company’s U.S. fulfillment network are regular, full-time employees. 

Seasonal positions are being offered in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
