Amazon today announced it is creating more than 120,000 seasonal positions across its U.S. network of fulfillment centers, sortation centers and customer service sites this holiday season.
Last year, the US-based online retail giant had hired 100,000 temporary workers. Amazon said that more than 14,000 of the seasonal positions in 2015 were transitioned to regular, full-time roles after the holidays last year.
The company expects to increase that number this year.
In 2015, Amazon’s fourth quarter profits more than doubled on back of demand from holiday season shoppers in the US.
