Amazon is adding thousands of new jobs across the country, both full and part time — including more than 6,500 positions in Dallas.
According to a release, the e-commerce company is ramping up for what they anticipate will be their "biggest peak season ever."
Jobs listed on Amazon's website include packing customer orders, shipping, and logistics, primarily in Garland. Salaries start at $15 an hour, with benefits starting on your first day.
In Texas, there are also 1,700 jobs opening in Austin.
The jobs are within Amazon's operations network, which includes fulfillment centers, delivery station, sorting centers, and airport hubs. The company has opened 75 new buildings in 2020.
In all, Amazon says it will hire 100,000 operations workers.
"COVID-19 continues to affect millions of people across the country, and people are eager for the opportunity to get back to work," says Beth Galetti of Amazon's HR department in a statement.
Amazon has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of the coronavirus pandemic, as consumers switched to shopping online for essential goods.
On August 26, the personal worth of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, already the richest man in the world, surpassed $200 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Since the start of 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, Bezos' wealth has increased by about $87 billion, and his ex-wife is now the richest woman in the world.
