Associated Press: Amazon to hire 100K for Holidays
"'Amazon stands out among retailers, with holiday hiring expected to remain largely unchanged, according to a report from Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
'It used to be that the bulk of holiday hires would be in customer-facing positions on the sales floor and behind the cash register, CEO John Challenger said. 'These extra workers would also help pick up the slack in the backroom, helping to receive and stock increased deliveries. Now, as more and more shopping is completed online, the holiday hiring is shifting away from stores and into the warehouses.'”
