SEATTLE — Amazon said Monday that it was hiring people of all backgrounds and skill levels to fill 150,000 seasonal jobs across the U.S. The company said these are in addition to previously announced plans to hire over 40,000 new corporate and tech jobs and 125,000 full and part-time fulfillment and transportation jobs.

“We are proud to be offering a huge range of full-time, part-time, and now seasonal jobs with great pay and benefits,” said Alicia Boler Davis, senior vice president of global customer fulfillment. “Our seasonal hiring helps us deliver on our promises to customers while also providing flexibility to our full-time employees during busy periods. Joining Amazon in one of our seasonal roles offers high-paying, part-time work, or a path to a full-time position, with benefits like our Career Choice program to help people advance their education and careers within Amazon or beyond.”

Amazon said that all its jobs in the U.S., including seasonal roles, have an average starting pay of $18 per hour, sign-on bonuses up to $3,000 and offer an additional $3 per hour depending on shifts in many locations.

Jobs in Amazon’s operations network include stowing, picking, packing and shipping. New hires will be fully trained and all facilities follow strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols, the company said.
