Amazon To Take On 15,000 New Seasonal Uk Staff For Christmas Crunch

Recommended Posts

http://www.theguardian.com/business/2013/sep/24/amazon-christmas-15000-seasonal-staff-uk

Amazon has announced it is hiring more than 15,000 seasonal staff across the UK to meet customer demand in the runup to Christmas.

The US internet retailer, which is expanding operations in the UK, said it expected hundreds of the temporary staff would later be able to take up permanent jobs.

Amazon said it was creating a variety of roles across its eight "fulfilment centres" and its Edinburgh customer service centre.

The eight distribution sites are in Doncaster, Dunfermline, Gourock, Inverclyde, Hemel Hempstead, Milton Keynes, Peterborough, Rugeley, Staffordshire, and Swansea Bay.

So Amazon creating lots of temporary jobs but how many shop jobs will be lost?

I think the top 1% have stolen Christmas. Christmas is there to make the plebs get into more debt so that they can milk them even more. The media will tell you you are a bad person if you don't spend everything you have got.

How much do you bet they'll be zero hours jobs, so if people don't buy enough tat, the new staff will have just a few hours' work or none at all.

This is the way Amazon hires all year round. Zero hours, zero job security.

Fine by me, the media keep telling me to buy a house and I don't listen to that either.
