Some of the 175,000 temporary workers Amazon hired to fill the need because of the coronavirus pandemic will be offered full-time jobs, the company announced.
Amazon will hire 125,000 of the 175,000 people hired to meet the demand on a full-time basis, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Some of the employees were hired after being laid off due to the pandemic.
Job offers will be handed out next month, Tech Crunch reported.
The jobs will come with benefits and will be at the company’s locations across the country, CBS News reported.
All may not stay with Amazon though.
The news came before the country’s unemployment numbers were released Thursday.
