BENGALURU: Amazon India said it is looking to hire 20,000 seasonal or temporary roles for customer support services in India. This is on top of the 50,000 seasonal roles it had announced for the supply chain and delivery network in May.
Most of these jobs will be work-from-home in a location approved by Amazon as part of its ‘virtual customer service’ that will cater to India as well as its global markets.
These jobs would pay an individual anywhere between Rs 15,000-20,000 per month based on location and role, according to a person involved with Amazon’s hiring process.
The new temporary positions, typically for three to six months, are being created to meet the higher demand being anticipated by the company in the next six months and to address the higher volume of traffic.
These hirings would be gradual in nature and the same would accelerate near the festive season in India and the US. Of the 50,000 temporary roles announced in May for India, the bulk of the hiring is still underway. Amazon India did not respond to TOI’s query.
