Dallas, Texas – In a significant pre-holiday labor force augmentation, Amazon divulged on Tuesday plans to onboard in excess of 13,000 workers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan region.
This hiring spree constitutes a fraction of the e-commerce behemoth’s overarching strategy to infuse its nationwide operations with a quarter of a million new staff members. Specifically, the 13,000 job openings in Texas are a subset of Amazon’s broader ambition to introduce over 28,000 new roles across the Lone Star State.
Amazon will offer full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions
Offering a gamut of employment classifications, Amazon’s hiring initiative encompasses full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions. Moreover, the company provides a pathway for seasonal staff to metamorphose into full-time employees, granting them access to long-term career prospects.
Roles under recruitment span a variety of operational tasks, from merchandise picking and packing to intricate logistics, including sorting and shipping. Applicants, irrespective of their professional backgrounds or prior experience, are welcomed to apply.
Amazon will be paying on $20.50 average with the maximum pay of up to $28 per hour
Amazon disclosed that employees in transportation and customer fulfillment roles stand to earn a lucrative hourly wage, averaging over $20.50 and potentially scaling up to $28, contingent upon the geographical locality of the job.
“The holiday season is always a special time at Amazon and we’re excited to hire 250,000 additional people this year to help serve customers across the country,” said John Felton, Amazon’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations in a statement.
“Whether someone is looking for a short-term way to make extra money, or is hoping to take their first step toward a fulfilling and rewarding career at Amazon, there’s a role available for them. A fulfillment or transportation employee who starts with us today will see a 13% increase in pay over the next three years—likely more, including our annual wage investments—and that’s on top of offerings like pre-paid college tuition with Career Choice and health care benefits on day one.”
In addition to remunerative incentives, Amazon has instituted an array of employee benefits for the current year, incorporating a pilot program for financial assistance and an emergency savings initiative.
