You can always rely on Amazon to help you find exactly what you need, whether it's that face mask your BFF is buzzing about or, in this case, more money in your pocket. Amazon just announced that it's looking for 3,000 (!) people to fill work-from-home positions in select states.
You know when you chat with a customer service rep after accidentally ordering two Instant Pots in the middle of the night? Good because that means you're familiar with the type of person that Amazon is looking for. The Work from Home Seasonal Customer Service Associate is a part-time position focused on giving customers Amazon-worthy service. "As an Amazon Customer Service Associate (CSA) it is a critical part of our mission to listen to the customer’s needs, deliver timely results, accurate information, personalized resolutions, and maintain our professional environment of supporting all Amazon customers," the job description writes.
Let's talk about the logistics: You should expect to work 20 to 29 hours each week at an hourly rate of $15. During a peak season or company-wide event (Prime Day, for example), you might work up to 60 hours a week with an overtime pay at 1.5x base rate. Shifts include mornings, afternoons and evenings and typically one or both weekend days.
If ditching the morning commute wasn't enough, this position comes with other perks including an employee discount and access to the Employee Assistance Program, which provides 24/7 support and resources for professional and personal needs. Plus, you'll earn healthcare coverage after 90 days of employment.
There's one catch: To apply, you must live within 50 miles or less from one of Amazon's physical Customer Service Sites in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi , Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, or Wyoming.
Applicants are expected to have a high school diploma or equivalent, distraction-free work space, and most importantly, reliable Internet. Interested? Head over to Amazon's job board to apply. Good luck!
