CLEVELAND — Editor's note: the video in the player above is from a previous story.

With the upcoming holiday season approaching fast, Amazon announced the availability of 150,000 seasonal jobs, including hundreds in the Cleveland area.

More than 2,000 jobs in the state of Ohio will be available for people of all backgrounds and skill levels seeking employment. 

All of Amazon’s jobs have an average pay of at least $15 per hour, sign-on bonuses up to $3,000, and an additional $3 per hour depending on shifts in many locations. There will also be the opportunity to transition into long-term careers.  

“We are proud to be offering a huge range of full-time, part-time, and now seasonal jobs with great pay and benefits,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Senior Vice President, Global Customer Fulfillment. “Our seasonal hiring helps us deliver on our promises to customers while also providing flexibility to our full-time employees during busy periods. Joining Amazon in one of our seasonal roles offers high-paying, part-time work, or a path to a full-time position, with benefits like our Career Choice program to help people advance their education and careers within Amazon or beyond.”

Many employees at Amazon return each holiday season, or they choose to transition into full-time roles after serving in a seasonal position. Seasonal workers contribute immensely to how Amazon delivers for customers during the busy holiday season. 

The jobs will include stowing, picking, packing, shipping and delivering customer orders. Those hired into seasonal positions will be thoroughly trained and must adhere to strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols. 

Ohio is one of the states with a large number of seasonal roles available.
