Amazon on Monday said it’s looking to fill 150,000 seasonal jobs across the US as we head into the holiday shopping season. 

Amazon said average starting pay for season roles is $18 an hour, with sign-on bonuses up to $3,000. The seasonal employees will help support full-time workers at fulfillment centers, sortation centers, regional air hubs, and delivery stations across the US, Amazon said. 

“Our seasonal hiring helps us deliver on our promises to customers while also providing flexibility to our full-time employees during busy periods,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s senior vice president of Global Customer Fulfillment, in a release. 

More to come.
