Amazon to Hire 100,000 Seasonal Workers as Demand Is Expected to Soar

With the coronavirus pandemic creating a swell in online shopping demand, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) continues to add employees as it anticipates another demand surge for the holidays. The company says it has promoted more than 35,000 operations workers across North America this year, and now will add another 100,000 seasonal workers in anticipation of the holiday crunch. Amazon's vice president of global customer fulfillment, Alicia Boler Davis, said in a statement that many of the 35,000 newly promoted workers joined the company through seasonal hirings, similar to the one announced today.
