Breaking News — In preparation for the busiest shopping seasons ahead, Amazon is going on a hiring spree. As early as next week, Amazon will begin to hire 50,000 workers.
Yes, that’s 50, 000 new workers! The online retail giant said Wednesday that it plans to hire 50,000 workers as part of a jobs fair it calls Amazon Jobs Day.
On August 2, Amazon amzn said it would invite interested job candidates to ten of its various fulfillment centers across the U.S. From 8 a.m. to noon on that day, Amazon staff will show prospective employees tours of their warehousing facilities, perform interviews, and “make thousands of on-the-spot job offers to qualified candidates,” according to the announcement.
Amazon vice president of worldwide operations and human resources John Olsen said in a statement that the jobs would offer “highly-competitive wages” and benefits.

“These are great opportunities with runway for advancement,” Olsen said. “In fact, of our entry level managers across Amazon’s U.S. fulfillment centers, nearly 15% started in hourly roles and were promoted into their current positions.”
Prospective job candidates can expect these fulfillment center roles to involve a lot of picking, packing, and shipping of the various goods Amazon distributes each day throughout the U.S.
Of the 50,000 open position, Amazon said over 10,000 will be part-time jobs.
Amazon did not indicate how many of these new hires will be office or warehouse-based and how many will be work from home jobs. However, if recent news holds true, Amazon may probably hire new work from home jobs as part of this huge hiring project.
