Amazon today announced it is looking for more than 1,500 seasonal workers in Michigan, part of a 150,000 national seasonal jobs push.
All Amazon jobs in the U.S., including seasonal roles, have a starting wage of at least $15 per hour (the average starting pay is $18 per hour), sign-on bonuses of up to $3,000, and an additional $3 per hour depending on shifts in many locations.
The openings announced today are in addition to the 5,000 full- and part-time operations jobs previously announced for Michigan, and 125,000 nationwide.
“We are proud to be offering a huge range of full-time, part-time, and now seasonal jobs with great pay and benefits,” says Alicia Boler Davis, senior vice president of global customer fulfillment at Amazon.
“Our seasonal hiring helps us deliver on our promises to customers while also providing flexibility to our full-time employees during busy periods. Joining Amazon in one of our seasonal roles offers high-paying, part-time work, or a path to a full-time position, with benefits like our Career Choice program to help people advance their education and careers within Amazon or beyond.”
Many of Amazon’s seasonal employees return each holiday season or choose to transition to full-time roles within the company. Seasonal workers, according to Amazon, are essential to how it delivers for customers.
Jobs in Amazon’s operations network include stowing, picking, packing, shipping, and delivering customer orders, and more. New hires will be fully trained and all facilities follow strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
