Amazon plans to increase this year's Christmas season, 20% of the temporary workers, the specific number of 12 million people. These positions are mainly concentrated in the order fulfillment center, sorting center and customer service department.
In contrast, Target plans to hire 70,000 temporary workers, unchanged from last year; Macy's plans to recruit 83,000 temporary workers, a decrease of 2,000 over last year. Large supermarkets and shopping malls have been declining recently due to competition from fast-moving brands such as electric carriers and H & amp; M.
In recent years, large retailers have set up warehouses and sorting centers around the country to speed up order fulfillment, but some retailers and logistics companies have difficulty getting enough staff during peak seasons.
In order to attract more candidates, Amazon promised more casual workers after the holidays to become regular workers. Of the 100,000 temporary jobs recruited during the Christmas season last year, 14,000 were employed as full-time employees. Amazon said the number of full-time employees will increase this year.
