Amazon said it is creating more than 120,000 positions at its U.S. network of fulfillment centers, sortation centers and customer service sites for the holiday season and more than 1,500 of them will be in Connecticut, according to a local public relations agency.
Last year, thousands of holiday positions were transitioned to regular, full-time roles after the holidays, according to Amazon, and the company expects to continue that trend this year.
“We prepare year round for the holidays and we’re excited to hire for over 120,000 positions this season to help delight our customers,” said Dave Clark, Amazon senior vice president of Global Customer Fulfillment. “We look forward to welcoming back holiday employees who return year-after-year to Amazon and welcome new faces to the team, many of whom will continue on with regular, full-time roles with the company after the holidays.”
In addition to here in Connecticut, Amazon positions are available in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
