For festive season, Amazon adds over 1lakh jobs

BENGALURU: Amazon India said it has created more than 110,000 seasonal jobs, ahead of the festive season. The jobs are across cities, including Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow and Chennai.
The majority of these new hires have joined Amazon’s existing network of associates and will support them to pick, pack, ship and deliver customer orders. New hires also include customer service associates, some of whom are part of the virtual customer service model that offers the flexibility to work from one’s home.
These new jobs are in addition to the 8,000 job opportunities that Amazon announced during its first Career Day in India, earlier this month. Amazon India plans to create 1 million new job opportunities in the country by 2025.
“An additional workforce of over 110,000 will help us strengthen our fulfilment, delivery and customer service capabilities, and will be instrumental in driving an exceptional customer experience,” said Akhil Saxena, VP for customer fulfilment operations in Amazon.
The seasonal hiring has also further strengthened Amazon’s inclusive workforce by adding 50% more women, close to 60% more persons with disabilities, and more than 100% increase in LGBTQAI+ representation, over last year.
In 2021, Amazon India expanded its fulfilment and delivery network and now has more than 60 fulfilment centres across 15 states
