Amazon looking to hire 19,000 people!

9 October 2015

amazon-logo Amazon are expecting a very, very busy Christmas and as such, are taking on a frankly remarkable 19,000 members of staff for the festive period.

Last year, they hired 13,000, so they're not mucking about. The jobs will be within Amazon’s fulfilment and customer service centres over the Christmas period, and like most temp jobs, there's a chance they might take you on permanently.

Amazon’s vice president of UK operations John Tagawa said: “As we continue to expand our operations in the UK, we are confident that hundreds of people who join us this Christmas in a seasonal role will have the opportunity to stay on with us on a permanent basis.”

We look forward to people asking us to get them a job with Amazon in the comments, and more importantly, the jokes being made at their expense by regular readers.

For a heads-up about Amazon's recruitment process, read this to give yourself an edge. Once you've done that, get stuck in on their vacancies page, by clicking here.

    I would never work for amazon on any basis, let alone christmas. The conditions the workforce is subjected to in the warehouse are abysmal. I wouldnt work for amazon if they were the last employer hiring on earth, I would result to crime!
