Amazon Plans to Hire 5,000 Employees to Work from Home

Amazon announced plans to create more than 5,000 new part-time roles that allow employees to work from home.

The jobs will be a part of the Virtual Customer Service.

It is 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.

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.

“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. 

The jobs will be listed at this site.
