Amazon India creates over 50,000 seasonal positions for festive sale

Monday, October 08, 2018

Amazon India has created more than 50,000 seasonal positions across its network of fulfilment centres in the country this year ahead of the festive sale as the e-commerce major jousts for leadership position against rival Flipkart.

Amazon India has a network of over 50 fulfilment centres, multiple sortation centres and close to 150 delivery stations spread across the country.

"In our effort to provide a seamless shopping experience, we have enhanced our teams significantly with more than 2X the number of seasonal associates working in the Amazon fulfilment network and customer service sites compared to the last festive season... The 50,000 seasonal associates will help us in augmenting our capabilities," Amazon India Vice President (India Customer Fulfilment) Akhil Saxena told PTI.

He added that this enhancement will play an "instrumental" role in "driving an exceptional experience" during Amazon India's Great Indian Festival Sale that is slated to be held between October 10-15.

Amazon India has, throughout the year, been investing heavily in ramping up its infrastructure and delivery network.

Saxena said these seasonal positions have been created across its network of fulfilment centres, sortation centers, delivery stations and customer service sites in cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Pune and others ahead of the festive season.

He added that these recruits will join the thousands of associates to help pick, pack, ship and deliver customers' orders more efficiently.
