Positions will mostly be in logistics to ensure smooth deliveries.
With the sale season hitting, Amazon India is going to create over 7500 temporary jobs. Most of these positions will be in logistics to ensure smooth deliveries during the upcoming sale from January 20–22.
Akhil Saxena, vice president – India customer fulfilment, at Amazon India, mentioned that the company has opened more than 7500 seasonal roles for its upcoming Great Indian Sale. These roles will be available at 27 fulfilment centres, over 100 delivery stations and close to 15 sort centres across the country.
He highlighted that throughout the year, Amazon.in generates thousands of seasonal jobs, as well as opportunities for long-term career development.
He also shared that the recruitment for seasonal roles is now underway and recruits will be trained for the upcoming sale. Locked in an intense battle for leadership in the Indian e-commerce market, with local rivals, such as Flipkart and Snapdeal, Amazon.in has aggressively invested in expanding its infrastructure and delivery capabilities.
The company has invested in six new fulfilment centres (FCs) last year, taking the total number of operational FCs to 27 in 10 states.
Amazon’s infrastructure helps thousands of sellers reach millions of new customers across the country. It also enables Amazon.in to offer faster and quicker delivery of products to more pin codes.
The US-based Amazon has committed investments worth over USD 5 billion for its India operations.
