Amazon Hires 100,000 Workers ahead of Black Friday and Holiday Shopping Season

This year seasonal workers earn a minimum wage of $15 per hour.

Amazon announced to hire 100,000 workers for the Holidays season. The new minimum wage of $15 per hour has already drawn 70,000 new hires across the United States since early October.

Newly hired applicants for Amazon's jobs will benefit from the new Amazon $15 minimum hourly wage, weekly paychecks for seasonal roles, flexible shift opportunities to fit within busy schedules, the option of receiving job information via text messaging, and a new application process that helps fit job seekers to the right building and the right role.

“For those who are looking for short-term roles to help pay for gifts or supplement other income, this is a great opportunity to try a role with Amazon for the first time. We also have team members who return to work at Amazon during the holidays year after year,” said Dave Clark, SVP for Amazon Operations. “Since the $15 minimum wage announcement, we are seeing a great response from job applicants and are encouraged in our early efforts to lead in pay for hourly employees.”

Amazon hiring teams across the country are continuing to hold job fairs, especially in California, Illinois, Washington, Kentucky, New Jersey, and Florida, where the hiring need is greatest for fulfillment centers, sortation centers, and delivery stations.

Walmart, Target, JCPenney and others are all hiring workers for the Holidays in huge numbers, preparing for a record Holiday sales season. Consumers are all programmed to spend big this year during Black Friday and Holiday shopping season according to recent surveys. Amazon is set to capture a big junk of the Holiday spending, fighting against its biggest rival Walmart.
