Internet retailer Amazon said today it plans to hire thousands of workers for its four Tennessee distribution centers for the holidays, including staffing up its Chattanooga and Charleston, Tenn., facilities.
The seasonal hires in the state are part of 50,000 that the Seattle-based retailer plans to employ for the Christmas holidays nationwide.
“Temporary associates play a critical role in meeting increased customer demand during the holiday season, and we expect thousands of temporary associates will stay on in full-time positions,” said Dave Clark, Amazon’s vice president of Global Customer Fulfillment, in a statement.
Amazon’s other Tennessee fulfillment centers are located in Murfreesboro and Lebanon. Interested applicants can apply online at www.amazonfulfillmentcareers.com.
