Aug 2 - Looking for a Job? Amazon Is Hiring 50,000 People Today
 

 
image



Amazon is today attempting to fill its 50,000 empty vacancies by hiring people on the spot in some of the U.S. cities that host their largest operation hubs.
They announced last weekend that they would host job fairs in places like Baltimore, Maryland and Buffalo, New York for full-time and part-time jobs in their fulfilment centres.

From 8.a.m to noon, Amazon will tour prospective employees around the warehouse facilities, interview them for the roles available, and, if successful, offer them the job on the spot. Twenty percent, around 10,000, of the jobs will be part-time and the rest full-time. The jobs on offer involve picking, packing and shipping of Amazon's products.

The participating centers are: Baltimore, Md.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Etna, Ohio.; Fall River, Mass.; Hebron, Ky.; Kenosha, Wis.; Kent, Wash.; Robbinsville, N.J.; Romeoville, Ill.; Whitestown, Ind.; Buffalo, N.Y. (part-time work only); Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Okla. (part-time work only).

If you are interested you will need to know, as previously reported by TIME:
The full-time positions include medical benefits starting and some tuition pre-payment. Part-time positions include medical benefits that begin after 90 days and tuition pre-payment.

Candidates must bring identification.
They must also wear flat, closed-toe and closed-heel shoes. Long hair must be tied up and beards must be trimmed to three inches (or netted). Extraneous jewelry, drawstrings, or anything that might pose a safety-risk won't be allowed.
The mass-hiring, which Amazon is calling Amazon Jobs Day, seems to be part of the company's push to hire an extra 100,000 workers by the middle of 2018. Amazon is also hoping to employ software engineers, data scientists, and customer service workers.

Jeff Bezos out here continuing Obamas legacy of job creation. Orange man just put down Bezos last week and Bezos replied by doing what the orange idiot can't.

Trump takes credit for literally EVERYTHING positive. Weird that he hasn't been touting this. Does his hatred for Washington Post (Amazon owns it) really go that deep?

Word. In one day he's creating more jobs than trump has in 6 months. Speaking of which trump still has a lot of vacancies in his cabinet, is he trying to get America working or what?
Trump ain't did sh*t but fire republicans since coming into office. Draining the swamp meant decimating the party that's constantly sucking his d*ck.

He's a liberal in disguise

ask the democrats holding up the confirmations

but you knew that
Really? That's what's happening?

Well, lets see. Trump has nominated around 250 of 1,200 positions...

At this point in his presidency Obama had nominated nearly 400... Bush had nominated 350... Clinton 300...

Of Trump's 500 KEY positions he's nominated just 165...



And hes admitted he doesnt even plan to fill many of them...




But you knew that right?

Does anyone in here actually have experience working with Amazon or knows anyone who does? I'm mainly talking about virtual location work in serious professional positions. Things like cloud architects, database admins, account mangers, software developers, etc?

it's only part time too...Amazon fulfillment center jobs fu*king blow from what I hear.

I don't know anybody who stayed for over a year.

People in college won't find much better part time work though for that price.

Little do you know amazon.com is not the money maker. we are actually losing money through Amazon.com so why? The money is on the AWS side of things, and we get paid pretty well. And them stock options...

It's about 500 million people in America. He could give everyone 2 million a piece and still be worth 89 billion.
