Amazon plans to hire 250000 employees countrywide. Here are the states with the greatest jobs.
This holiday season, Amazon intends to hire 250,000 workers to staff its fulfillment sites across the country.
The online retailer and delivery behemoth is generally starting to ramp up for the holidays at the same time as the hiring expansion. Earlier this week, the corporation announced plans to hire more people nationally for full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions.

Additionally, Amazon disclosed intentions to raise pay for jobs in customer fulfillment and transportation. The business estimates spending $1.3 billion this year to raise the average pay to $20.50 per hour.
Amazon claims that within the past five years, the corporation has increased pay by $10 billion.
“A fulfillment or transportation employee who starts with us today will see a 13% increase in pay over the next three years—probably more,” said John Felton. Senior vice president of worldwide operations. “Including our yearly wage investments—and that’s on top of offerings like health care benefits from the start and prepaid college tuition with Career Choice.”
There are many employment at Amazon fulfillment centers that are related to packaging or delivery. But there are also many other professions that are available. Some of which are at the more than 50 recently opened fulfillment facilities.
