Investing in Our Team
Amazon’s extraordinary employees come together to deliver joyful experiences for customers year-round, and the company recently announced it’s hiring an additional 125,000 full- and part- time positions and 150,000 seasonal jobs with an average starting pay of $18 per hour, sign-on bonuses of up to $3,000, and an additional $3 per hour depending on shifts in many locations. These employees are the heart and soul of Amazon, which is why the company has spent more than $15 billion across its fulfillment network to help keep employees safe and deliver products to customers. Additionally, the company has continued to invest in technology, aircraft, ships, and buildings to ensure it has the products customers want and need available throughout the season. Plus, it’s putting more selection in fulfillment centers closer to customers, which is possible because of the sophisticated and innovative network Amazon has built over 20 years. These improvements mean customers can continue to rely on fast and efficient delivery throughout the holiday season and beyond.
