E-commerce firm Amazon has said that it has created more than 1 lakh 10 thousand seasonal employment opportunities in its operational network ahead of the festive season. These opportunities include direct and indirect jobs in many cities of India like Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow and Chennai.
Most of these new hirings join Amazon’s existing network of associates, where they will support them to efficiently take, pack, ship and deliver orders efficiently. New hiring also includes customer service associates, some of whom are part of the virtual customer service model that offers the convenience of working from the comfort of home.
