Amazon announced this month plans to fill 150,000 seasonal jobs across the U.S. to help with increased demand due to the 2021 holiday season.
According to an Oct. 18 press release, 5,000 of those seasonal jobs are in Nevada, which is in addition to the 2,500 full- and part-time jobs the company announced were open in mid-September.
“I joined Amazon as a seasonal employee in 2007 and returned each year as a seasonal worker until 2009 when I decided to stay on after the holiday season,” Kevin Rich, a Development Engineer at one of Amazon’s Reno fulfillment centers, said in a statement. “… Since this transition, Amazon has supported my growth through different roles from data analyst to System Development Engineer for Global Specialty Fulfilment.”
According to the release, all Amazon jobs, including seasonal roles, have an average starting pay of $18 per hour, as well as sign-on bonuses up to $3,000.
