Global e-commerce major Amazon.com, Inc. has said it will create one lakh seasonal positions across its US network of fulfillment and sortation centers this holiday season in order to meet the increase in customer demand. In the months leading up to this holiday season, Amazon has also hired tens of thousands of regular, full-time employees, it said in a press release.

“We've hired more than 25,000 full-time associates across the US in recent months and we're looking forward to adding 100,000 seasonal employees for the upcoming holiday season,” said Mike Roth, Amazon's vice president of North America operations. “Following last year's holiday season, tens of thousands of seasonal employees found regular, full-time roles with Amazon. We're excited to grow our team by finding great talent through our seasonal hiring efforts in addition to creating new full-time jobs that offer comprehensive benefits starting on day one.”

Amazon has more than 90,000 full-time employees across its more than 50 fulfillment centers and 20 sortation centers in the US. To meet customer demand and prepare for the 2015 holiday season, Amazon has hired over 25,000 full-time employees since August. For its regular, full-time positions, Amazon offers competitive wages and comprehensive benefits, including healthcare, stock and bonuses.

Throughout the year on average, nearly 90 per cent of associates across the company's US fulfillment network are regular, full-time employees.

Amazon also offers regular, full-time employees innovative programs like Career Choice, where it will pre-pay 95 per cent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon. The company recently announced the expansion of the program with the creation of dedicated, onsite classrooms at eight of its fulfillment centers across the US. The classrooms feature high-end technology and allow employees to take college classes, industry certification courses, college readiness programs and business seminars onsite, the company said.
