Online retail giant Amazon announced Tuesday that it plans to hire about 100,000 temporary workers in the country amid demand for the holiday season. This year, consumers are shopping before Christmas due to the closure of shopping malls, dramatically increasing online orders.
More than 4,500 jobs are on offer in New York, Amazon announced. The company is looking for full and part time workers.
The minimum hourly pay in the Big Apple is $ 15, but at Amazon’s Staten Island fulfillment center it offers $ 17.75 an hour, the retailer noted. Anyone interested in applying for the job can visit amazon.com/apply.
