Amazon has announced it will be creating 80,000 seasonal holiday jobs, but this opportunity just may be the gift that keeps on giving.
This past year, Amazon converted thousands of seasonal employees into regular, full-time roles after the holidays, and expects to do the same this year.
“We’re excited to be creating 80,000 seasonal jobs, thousands of which will lead to regular, full-time roles with benefits starting on day one and innovative programs like Career Choice for employees to further pursue their education, said Mike Roth, Amazon’s vice president of North America operations.
For its regular, full-time fulfillment center positions, Amazon offers competitive hourly wages and a comprehensive benefits package, including health care, 401(k) and company stock awards.
Amazon employs more than 5,000 workers split between its two fulfillment centers in Murfreesboro and Lebanon. Earlier this summer, it announced plans to build a sorting center in Nashville.
