Oct 13 Amazon.com Inc said on Thursday
it would hire more than 120,000 seasonal employees across its
fulfillment centers, sortation centers and customer service
sites in the United States in the upcoming holiday season.
More than 14,000 seasonal positions were transitioned to
regular, full-time roles after the holidays last year, and the
company expects to increase that number this year, Amazon said.
Rival U.S. retailers have taken a cautious view of the
holiday selling season this year.
Macy's Inc, which operates the namesake Macy's and
Bloomingdale's department store chains, said in September, it
would hire 83,000 temporary workers for the holiday quarter, a 2
percent decline from last year.
