Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is hosting a Career Day later this month as the Company seeks to fill 30,000 permanent positions across the U.S. The e-commerce giant said it will host six Career Day events on September 17 located in Arlington, Virginia; Boston; Chicago; Dallas; Nashville, Tennessee; and its hometown of Seattle.

The available jobs include part-time and full-time positions, all of which pay at least USD 15 per hour and have “competitive benefits”. Roles are also available at a variety of sites across the country, including Amazon’s headquarters, data centers and fulfillment centers.

“Amazon has created more than 300,000 new jobs in the U.S. over the last decade – and we’re proud to continue investing and creating opportunities for people across the country,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “These are jobs with highly competitive compensation and full-benefits from day one, as well as training opportunities to gain new skills in high-demand fields such as robotics and machine learning.”

All new hires will have access to on-the-job training and career development opportunities, as part of Amazon’s “Upskilling 2025” program. The online retailer said in July it will invest over USD 700 Million into upskilling training programs to help its employees advance their careers. By 2025, Amazon plans to retrain 100,000 workers, or one-third of its workforce.

The Company, which employs more than 650,000 people worldwide, added that it will also begin hiring for tens of thousands of seasonal roles to meet increased demand for the holiday season. These positions will pay USD 15 per hour, Amazon said.
