Christmas is just a few months away, which means you’re probably already tempted to add tons of items to your holiday wish list.
But instead of spending your entire savings on all the hot new deals Amazon has to offer, you can actually make a little extra cash through the online shopping giant.
The best part? You can work from home!
By applying for one of these awesome positions, you’ll get to solve problems and answer questions from customers right from the comfort of your own couch.
There is a catch—you have to live in one of these states: Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, or Virginia.
Benefits of Becoming an Amazon Customer Service Associate
Unlike most jobs, you literally don’t even have to get out of bed to work for Amazon if you don’t want to. As long as you have a phone and computer, you’re pretty much good to go.
You can choose your own hours. Amazon will give you a pool of shifts to choose from and you can decide to pick as many different shifts as you want. Whether you want to work two hours a week or 35, how much you work is up to you!
Because the holiday season (November to January) is such a busy time for online shopping sites like Amazon, you may be asked to work anywhere from 20 to 40 hours a week, depending on your schedule.
No matter what, you’ll earn $10 an hour—a great income if you’re looking for a little extra cash to pad your Christmas fund.
What the Hiring Process Looks Like
When it comes to hiring during the holidays, most companies are fairly quick about bringing new workers onboard.
Because it’s only a few months, after applying for the position, you could be offered the job within a matter of days.
Amazon does require an online orientation, as well as training, but the training itself is paid. It requires watching video modules and taking quizzes, so Amazon can find out how much you’re taking in before you start the real work.
The entire process will probably take no longer than two weeks.
Do You Have What It Takes to Work At Amazon?
While you don’t need a college degree, you do need a high school diploma for this position, plus at least one year of exposure in a service environment. Aside for those educational qualifications, you need to know how to type, talk on the phone, and navigate a computer.
Amazon will provide you with a head-set and a token.
