Amazon’s holiday push will be accompanied by hiring more than 1,000 full-time and part-time employees in Fresno and Visalia, the company said Thursday.

The announcement follows the company’s decision to 150,000 seasonal employees across the country — including 20,000 in California.

While starting pay varies by city, all Amazon jobs in the U.S., including the seasonal roles, have an average starting hourly pay of more than $19 per hour, the company said.

Opportunities to Advance

“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,” said John Felton, Amazon’s senior VP for worldwide operations.

The open jobs include stowing, picking, packing, shipping, and delivering customer orders, according to Amazon officials.
