Can you believe it's already the end of July? Before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us.
Many people forget to plan ahead and find themselves a little strapped for cash when trying to cross everyone off their Christmas shopping list. I have good news! Amazon is looking to hire thousands of people, just in time for the holiday rush.
Amazon Jobs Day is right around the corner
Amazon will hold its biggest hiring event of the year next week. Amazon Jobs Day is Wednesday, August 2, 2017.
The online retail giant is looking to hire 50,000 workers in the U.S. alone. It is opening the doors to potential new-hires at fulfillment centers on August 2 from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. local time in select U.S. cities.
Those attending the job fair will tour the facility, get information about available openings and can apply for the job at the event. If you're interested in attending, click here to find an available tour near you.
VP of Amazon's Worldwide Operations Human Resources John Olsen said about the event, "We're excited to be creating great jobs that offer highly-competitive wages, benefits starting on day one and the chance for employees to go back to school through our Career Choice program.
"On August 2, we are excited to host interested candidates to come learn more about the technology we utilize in our operations, see our dedicated onsite classrooms, meet employees and, if interested, apply for a job at our site and receive an on-the-spot offer.
"These are great opportunities with runway for advancement. In fact, of our entry level managers across Amazon's U.S. fulfillment centers, nearly 15 percent started in hourly roles and were promoted into their current positions."
The company is hiring full and part-time positions and will have on-the-spot job offers for those attending the job fair.
