Amazon to add 5,000 work-from-home jobs, many with benefits

"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."

If you hope to bring in extra money through a part-time job that lets you work from home, keep an eye on Amazon's virtual-job postings.
The e-commerce giant announced Thursday that it plans to add 5,000 part-time work-from-home jobs for its Virtual Customer Service program over the next year. Folks hired for these positions will work as customer service agents.
Tom Weiland, Amazon's vice president for Worldwide Customer Service, notes:

These positions will offer what Amazon describes as "competitive wages" and — for employees who work at least 20 hours per week — benefits.
If you're unable to snag one of these work-from-home jobs or don't mind a commute, keep an eye on Amazon's fulfillment and operations job postings.
The company also plans to add 25,000 part-time jobs for its sortation and fulfillment centers over the next year. Folks hired for these positions will sort and consolidate customer packages.

These positions will also offer benefits to employees who work at least 20 hours per week.
Amazon says that more than 70 percent of part-time employees in its Virtual Customer Service and Customer Fulfillment programs work more than 20 hours per week. The benefits available to them include:
  • Life and disability insurance
  • Dental and vision insurance, with premiums paid in full by Amazon
  • Funding toward medical insurance
  • Amazon's Career Choice program, which prepays 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether those skills are relevant to jobs at Amazon
