Amazon is hiring 33k new employees and an average compensation is 150k

Amazon hiring 527 jobs in Nashville, more than 1K across Tennessee

Anyone can participate in Career Day 2020 by going to amazon.jobs/careerday to register and book an appointment with a recruiter.

1 online retailer Amazon.com Inc. said on Wednesday that it would be hiring as many as 33,000 employees for corporate alongside tech roles over the next few months, marking up the largest number of white collar and tech job openings for the online retailer.

Amid high unemployment nationwide, Amazon says it has more USA job openings than at any time in its history and will try to fill many of them at a career day next week.

As many retailers struggle to stay afloat in the coronavirus-battered economy, Amazon is hiring like insane.

The 33,000 open corporate and tech roles are across the company's businesses and physical locations, including its Seattle headquarters - which had 6585 openings on Wednesday, far more than any other location - and 18 tech hubs in cities across the country.

On average, the jobs will offer a total annual compensation of $150,000, including salary and stock awards, an Amazon spokesperson told CBS MoneyWatch by email. Those not interested in a job at Amazon can also get resume help, the company said.


We've created more jobs in the U.S. over the past decade than any other company - and we are continuing to hire people from all backgrounds and at all skill levels.

As part of this year's virtual event, Amazon will have 1,000 of its recruiters on hand to provide 20,000 career coaching sessions to attendees during the single-day event. The company hired 175,000 people in the spring across its fulfillment and delivery network to keep up with surging demand sparked by widespread lockdowns.

The event will also include three hours of mainstage programming with fireside chats, panel discussions and interviews with leading career-advice experts and Amazon executives.

At an in-person Amazon career fair previous year, about 17,000 people showed up and the company said it received more than 200,000 applications for 30,000 jobs.

The company said the new hires will work from home at first, but Amazon said it does want employees to return to the office eventually.

With more than 875,000 employees worldwide, Amazon has been consistently recognized on LinkedIn's Top Companies, now ranks #2 in the Fortune World's Most Admired Companies, and was selected by Fast Company as one of the Best Workplaces for Innovators.
