Amazon has some new openings ready, but only if you are prepared to work from home. In an announcement, the tech-shopping giant said that the company is looking for some virtual workers. It means that they will be working from home, with the help of the Internet. The company is planning to hire around 240 as a part of this initiative. Amazon calls this ‘the office that comes to you.’ Amazon is offering full-time and part-time jobs in this package. Of course, the virtual workers at Amazon will be receiving the employee benefits. However, it is now available for full-time employees only.
It is worth noting that Amazon is expecting virtual workers into various sectors like IT Support, marketing, customer support, development, Human Resources, etc. Given that 240 positions are available as of now, many jobs should be present in each department. It means that those who are ready to make a home-office has an opportunity to grab a job at Amazon. As said earlier, full-time positions will be offering benefits like medical insurance, paid time off and of course maternity leave. Considering these benefits, being one of the Amazon virtual workers is a great deal indeed.
However, there are some possible restrictions regarding the availability of the positions. For instance, most of the posts are available in some regions of the United States. That was having said, and there are some open-to-all positions as well. Amazon demands that the virtual employee should have a working space at home and that there should not be any distractions whatsoever. The jobs also require undivided attention during the work hours. The company also wants to stay away from child/adult care during the work hours. As it can be guessed, the tech giant is now trying to cut down infrastructure costs by offering work-from-home positions to people.
