SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Amazon announced on October 6 that they are looking to hire more than 700 employees in the Syracuse and Central New York region for the holiday season.

Positions will include full-time, seasonal, and part-time.

Amazon released that they will be offering a $1,000 sign-on bonus as an incentive for locals to become seasonal employees. They also said that there will be an opportunity for seasonal employees to transition into full-time positions once the holidays are over.

Roles for this holiday season will include picking, sorting, packing, and shipping. All experience levels and backgrounds are welcome.

“We’re proud to offer a wide variety of roles for people of all backgrounds, with more than 150,000 roles available across the country. Whether someone is looking for some extra money for a few months or a long-term career, the holidays are a great time for people to join Amazon, and many of our seasonal employees return year-after-year or transition into full-time roles,” said John Felton, Amazon’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations. “Those who choose to stay with us will find a lot of opportunities to grow their careers, whether they take advantage of our free college tuition programs or seek out promotions across our network—this year alone, more than 20,000 front-line employees received promotions.”
