Amazon to hire 100 seasonal workers at its Nashua facility
Amazon.com Inc., announced this week that it is creating more than 70,000 full-time seasonal jobs across the nation at its fulfillment centers to meet increased customer demand this holiday season.
“In the state of New Hampshire, we are hiring for more than a hundred seasonal employees,” Nina Akerley Lindsey of Amazon Corporate Communications said in an email to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
The site leader at the Nashua fulfillment center was unavailable to comment on Wednesday. The Amazon site in Nashua, which opened in 2007, employs hundreds of workers throughout the year, according to Lindsey, who did not provide a more specific number of employees.
“In 2012, Amazon converted thousands of seasonal employees into regular, full-time roles after the holidays, and expects to do the same this year,” the statement said. Since the start of the financial recession in September 2008, Amazon has added more than 40,000 jobs in the United States across all parts of the company.
