The online retail giant announced a massive hire of seasonal workers, today.

Amazon hires a record-breaking number of seasonal workers for the Black Friday and Holiday shopping season. The online retail giant announced to hire 100,000 seasonal workers in order to meet the increased customer demand. Last year Amazon hired 80,000 seasonal workers. The number increased by 20,000 this year.

The Jeff Bezos led company has already hired over 25,000 full-time employees since August. Amazon has more than 90,000 full-time employees across its more than 50 fulfillment centers and 20 sortation centers in the U.S.

In comparison, Walmart only plans to hire 60,000 seasonal workers for the Holidays 2015. The struggling retail giant has announced this back in September. As reported, Walmart is taking a hit in profits to invest in several directions to come out on top again in 3 years. Walmart's stock fell dramatically after the announcement. Amazon's stock meanwhile is on a roll. It could end up doubling its value within only a year.

Amazon has already shown with Prime Day in July that there is only one direction the Black Friday 2015 sales volume will go - up.

"We’ve hired more than 25,000 full-time associates across the U.S. in recent months and we’re looking forward to adding 100,000 seasonal employees for the upcoming holiday season. Following last year’s holiday season, tens of thousands of seasonal employees found regular, full-time roles with Amazon. We’re excited to grow our team by finding great talent through our seasonal hiring efforts in addition to creating new full-time jobs that offer comprehensive benefits starting on day one," said Mike Roth, Amazon’s vice president of North America operations.
