Amazon announced plans to create more than 5,000 new part-time roles over the next year in Virtual Customer Service, a program in the company's award-winning customer service organization that offers employees the flexibility to work from home as a customer service agent. In addition to competitive wages, virtually-located employees who work 20 hours per week or more receive benefits, including the company's innovative Career Choice program that pre-pays 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether those skills are relevant to jobs at Amazon. These new Virtual Customer Service jobs are part of Amazon's plans to hire more than 30,000 part-time roles over the next year, on top of more than 100,000 full-time, full-benefit jobs the company is creating in the U.S. over the next 18 months. See the experience of a military spouse and Amazonian working in Virtual Customer Service here."There are lots of people who want or need a flexible job - whether they're a military spouse, a college student, or a parent - and we're happy to empower these talented people no matter where they happen to live," said Tom Weiland, Amazon Vice President for Worldwide Customer Service. "We're finding that roles with Virtual Customer Service are particularly attractive to military spouses who want to continue working and parenting, even if their spouse is deployed or the family is relocated, as often happens with military families. Wounded, injured or ill military veterans and others with mobility challenges are also enjoying these opportunities to work from home with Amazon. Both active duty and retired service men and women support our country and we are happy to support them."
Amazon Virtual Customer Service employee Sabrina Tierce relocated six years ago from central California to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington State where her husband is stationed as an Army medic. "It's amazing to have a job that offers me the flexibility to care for my child when needed and even to move around the country if we are relocated," said Tierce. "My commute is about 15 paces. The worst part of my day is if there's a Lego on the stairway, because that's a rough commute to work."
Amazon currently employs more than 10,000 military veterans, and last year pledged to hire an additional 25,000 veterans and military spouses during the next five years.
"Amazon's commitment and taking an intentional step around military spouse employment truly shows that they do understand the challenges that the community faces and that they can be a part of the solution," said Kylee Durant, USO Vice President for Transition Technology and Innovation Programs as well as a military spouse. "To have an innovator like Amazon recognize the need – the deep need – that military spouses have for employment says to me they are a catalyst for greater societal change in this country."
Part-Time Opportunities in Amazon Customer Fulfillment
In addition to Virtual Customer Service roles, Amazon will create more than 25,000 part-time roles over the next year across its network of sortation and fulfillment centers where employees sort and consolidate customer packages. Amazon has nearly 40,000 part-time employees across the U.S. and has found the roles are especially appealing to students and stay-at-home parents looking to earn money during windows of availability in their schedules.
Part-Time Employment with Benefits
Over 70 percent of part-time employees in Amazon's Virtual Customer Service and Customer Fulfillment work more than 20 hours per week, which means they receive benefits, including life and disability insurance, dental and vision insurance with premiums paid in full by Amazon, and funding towards medical insurance. These part-time employees can also take advantage of the company's Career Choice program, an innovative benefit that helps train employees for in-demand jobs at Amazon or elsewhere so that they can take full advantage of the nation's innovation economy. The program pre-pays 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a future career at Amazon. More than 9,000 employees have participated in Career Choice and more are signing up every day. Amazon has open-sourced the program and is reaching out to companies to help them copy and adopt their own Career Choice programs.
Amazon.com, Inc. announced plans to open its tenth Texas fulfillment center in Katy where it will create 1,000 new, full-time jobs. Since Amazon launched operations in Texas in 2013, the company has quickly grown its fulfillment workforce in the state to 10,000-plus full-time employees across seven existing facilities in Coppell, Haslet, Dallas, Fort Worth, Schertz and San Marcos. Previously announced facilities in Houston and Coppell are currently under construction.“We are excited to continue growing in Texas by creating an additional 1,000 full-time roles at this new fulfillment center in Katy,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North American Operations. “In fact, beyond the more than the thousands of employees who currently work for Amazon in Texas, more than 160,000 authors, sellers and developers in Texas are growing their businesses and reaching new customers on Amazon products and services.”
Amazon employees at the one million-square-foot Katy fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship larger-sized customer items, such as music equipment, sports gear, and electronics.
“We are honored Amazon chose Katy to be the location for their next fulfillment center, and we know the City of Katy will benefit from this relationship through increased job opportunities for our residents and their support of local Katy businesses,” said Katy Mayor Fabol Hughes. “We look forward to working with Amazon and the local team for years to come.”
Waller County Judge Trey Duhon said, "I am truly excited that Amazon is considering Waller County and Katy for their next distribution center. Their commitment to bring approximately 1,000 full-time jobs, supported by their unique employee incentive program for career advancement outside of the company, shows a significant long-term commitment to help create a diverse and sustainable local economy, which benefits everyone in the County. Amazon will be a very welcome addition to our corporate community.”
Full-time employees at Amazon receive competitive hourly wages and a comprehensive benefits package, including healthcare, 401(k) and company stock awards, starting on day one. Amazon also offers regular full-time employees maternity and parental leave benefits and access to innovative programs like Career Choice, where it will pre-pay up to 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon. Since the program’s launch, over 9,000 employees have pursued degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming, and radiology, to name a few.
As you may know, we offer 50 Different Customer Based Income Webstores for you to select from. One of them is targeted to the "Book Buyers Market" which is MASSIVE, just ask Barnes & Nobles. For Our Income Webstores Associates that selected the Customer Based Books Webstore, this Video will teach you how to pull thousands of Book Buyers to your Customer Based Books Webstore.
For your understanding, each of the 50 Different Customer Based Income Webstores we offer is loaded with anywhere from 400,000 to 2 Million different products that your visitors will have access to for purchase. Our GOAL is to design each Webstore to appeal to a different Customer Based Interest; This in turn, enables our Webstore Associates to target Millions of Buyers that have a certain buying interest. In this case, the Buyers interest is in purchasing a Book. Once the Buyer visits your Webstore and reviews Your Massive Book Inventory (provided by Amazon) in every Category known to mankind, the Buyer (your webstore visitor) will also see your other product lines (optional) that you offer as well.
This is called "Cross Merchandising". Once your visitors have found "ONE PLACE" they can purchase all their books from, you are now in the position to not only get a Book sale, but the Book Buyer may see other items that they want to purchase as well.....And you get paid for each and every item that the Book Buyer purchases any other items you have available for sale in your webstore. In other words, if you have an online Bookstore you may wish to consider adding Kindle Products as well since these 2 webstores basically go hand in hand. These 2 webstores target Book Buyers. The Book Webstore offer books that are physically shipped to the customer. While on the other hand, the Kindle Webstore offers Books, Newspapers, Magazines and more that are all delivered to the customer digitally and they can read their book anytime with the convenience of their Kindle Ebook Reader. Yes, you can even sell the Kindle Devices, Tablets, Computers, Home & Garden Products, Electronics, Sporting Goods, Music, DVDS or whatever you'd like? It's all about giving you choices, which in turn gives your visitors more choices, and the more different items you offer, the more sales and money you can make.
As a matter of fact, some of our associates purchase several webstores that contain many different Customer Based Niches that interest them personally. We even have a few associates that purchase all 50 of our webstores and we custom build their website (all under one domain name) to contain over 51 million products. Anyway, we'll have more on that later. The bottom line is this: You can have a Custom Webstore that contains anywhere from 400,000 Products to over 51 Million Products. It's all about giving you (Our Valued Associates) choices to build your Unique, One Of A Kind Mega Superstore.
Why this works? Because most Buyers hate to waste a lot of time searching for what they want or need to purchase. By you having a Consumer Based Book Webstore associated with The #1 Online Retailer in America, your visitors will come back and visit often. And as we said above, we can build you any one webstore, OR a Custom Mega Superstore that contains any of the different Customer Based Niches loaded with the exact products you wish to offer. Best part is, the more different webstores you purchase, the more money you'll save, and the more variety you'll have.
