Besides the lead fulfillment associate opening, they only have seasonal fulfillment openings at the center in Schertz near San Antonio. The pay is $10-something an hour.

If you are applying for a work from home customer service job, I think you need a PC, they are not Mac compatible.

Was this just a few people that they get rid of for performance but say that it was constant turnover or has this happened several times. This is what I wonder about your comment.

All wonderful jobs too!

From Glassdoor the amount Amazon pays makes me giddy!

Amazon.com Salaries in Chattanooga, TN

FC Associate - Hourly
2 Amazon.com Salaries in Chattanooga (13 in US $11.01/hr)

Impressive, huh?

These are high paying jobs America needs!

//Sarcasm Off

What really gets me is people are celebrating this as if it is something great? Hate to tell you but $11.01/hr is next door to poverty even in Chattanooga.

So a single mom with one kid will gross $440.40 and take home $365.80. Really impressive!

Meanwhile, in the U.S., the average, full-time hourly wage for a Wal Mart employee is $12.78 with liberals kicking Wal mart in the rear every single day. So what is up with this, Amazon donates more money to democratic party functions?

Ya, fire you if your not productive. The temps they get rid of after busy season because it is a seasonal job. It would make no sense to "fire" people if they still need them and they are good workers.

I just wonder if these jobs are seasonal or will be long-term jobs that should last longer than January (unless you are a screw-up of course.)

I don't think they would hire full-time employees with benefits for seasonal work.

If your not working then perhaps you can; OP. Better than sitting unemployed having a worse work record the longer your jobless.
