Amazon hires 100 new employees and raises salaries due to coronavirus pandemic
16 March in блоге Amazon has reported that the company will employ 100 workers and increase salaries by $ 000 per hour until April, writes Business Insider... This is due to the “unprecedented demand” for the labor force due to the significant increase in demand during the coronavirus pandemic.
Amazon said it is investing about $ 350 million in salary increases. According to the company, new jobs include both full-time and part-time jobs, and the total number of employees worldwide after the new hiring will reach nearly 900.
“We are seeing a significant increase in demand, which means our labor needs are unprecedented for this time of year,” the blog post said.
These steps are intended to help warehouse and delivery workers as they deal with increased workloads during the coronavirus pandemic, which is causing more and more people to shop online.
On March 14 and 15, the Amazon blog reported that as coronavirus spread around the world, there has been a sharp increase in the number of online shoppers. This led to some of the most popular brands and home furnishings running out, as well as difficulties with a normal delivery cycle.
“We work around the clock with our channel partners to ensure the availability of all of our products and provide additional shipping options for all of your orders,” Amazon said in a statement.
Meanwhile, according to Bloomberg, on March 15, Amazon experienced a technical glitch with its Whole Foods and AmazonFresh services, as it faced a sharp increase in the number of online product orders.
