Amazon announced it is creating more than 120,000 positions this season across its U.S. network of fulfillment centers, sortation centers and customer service sites.


Here in Maryland, Amazon is currently hiring for more than 3,000 seasonal roles picking, packing and shipping customer orders.


Last year, thousands of holiday positions were transitioned to regular, full-time roles after the holidays 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, in a statement. 


“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.” 


New employees will join the more than 125,000 regular, full-time employees at Amazon’s more than 75 fulfillment centers across the country to help pick, pack and ship customers’ holiday orders.
