Amazon to create 80,000 seasonal jobs in US

Amazon expects to create 80,000 seasonal jobs across its US network of fulfilment and sortation centres this Christmas.

The company now has more than 50 fulfilment centres in the US and will have more than 15 sortation centres by the end of 2014.

The new network of sortation centres is fuelling a range of innovations like Sunday delivery, later cut-off ordering times for customers and the ability to control packages deeper into the delivery process.

“So far this year, we have converted more than 10,000 seasonal employees in the US into regular, full-time roles and we’re looking forward to converting thousands more across our growing network of fulfilment and sortation centres after this holiday season,” said Mike Roth, Amazon’s vice president of North America operations.
