Amazon is continuing to provide diverse employment opportunities for people of all backgrounds and skill levels, by recently announcing 1,50,000 seasonal jobs across the US, including approximately 3,000 in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Jobs at the Amazon’s operations network include stowing, picking, packing, shipping and many more.

All Amazon jobs in the US, including seasonal roles, have an average starting pay of $18 per hour, sign-on bonuses up to $3,000 and an additional $3 per hour depending on shifts in many locations. These seasonal roles come in addition to the 2,700 full and part-time operations jobs announced for Minnesota previously, Amazon said in a press release.

“I was hired as a part-time seasonal worker. As I started to meet my teammates and learn more about the life-changing benefits and advancement opportunities here in Shakopee, I transitioned to a full-time position. The work has been rewarding as we impact our customers lives in such a positive way,” Amazon associate Brandon Tarabocchia explained.

New hires will be fully trained and all facilities follow strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols. A job with Amazon can be the start of a future, long-term career inside or outside of the company. Jobs are available in hundreds of cities and towns across America.

“Since May, we have converted hundreds of part-time or seasonal employees into full-time, blue badge employees. Currently, our fulfilment centre in Shakopee is offering good hourly wages, bonuses and flexible schedules to help fit the needs of anyone who wants to re-enter the workforce. We also cater to individuals looking for extra, end-of-the-year income; many of them join us around this time year after year. Amazon has something for everyone and everyone is welcome here,” fulfilment centre assistant general manager Adam Swift explained.

Amazon was recently named by LinkedIn as the No. 1 company where Americans want to work and develop their careers. Job advancement and career building is an important focus for the company, and many employees who have been with the company six months or longer have been promoted. Seasonal employees will help support full-time employees across over 250 new fulfilment centres, regional air hubs, and delivery stations that opened in the US in 2021.

States with the greatest number of seasonal roles include: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
