RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Amazon, which has a growing footprint across the Triangle and North Carolina, is looking to hire another 100,000 workers.

The announcement today follows other hiring hingers earlier this year in which the internet conglomerate added hundreds of thousands of jobs earlier this year to help manage demand for deliveries during the pandemic.

“Amazon is now hiring for more than 100,000 additional seasonal jobs as we head into the holidays,” Amazon announced Tuesday in a blog post.

“These new seasonal employees will help pick, pack, and ship customer orders this holiday season. Amazon offers jobs for people of all backgrounds and skill levels. These new seasonal jobs offer opportunities for pay incentives, benefits, and a path to a longer-term career, or can simply provide extra income and flexibility during the holiday season.”

Locally, Amazon is staffing up for news at a new distribution center in Garner and a smaller operation in Cary.

“On top of an industry-leading $15 minimum wage, full-time regular jobs at Amazon come with comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance on day one, 401K with 50 percent company match, and a network to succeed,” Amazon said.
