Amazon laid out plans to create 30,000 part-time positions in the U.S. over the next year, as a result of its customer base nearly doubling, combined with the addition of dozens of new warehouses across the country. Included in that number of new hires are roughly 5,000 home-based positions in the retail giant’s virtual customer service department.

The company needs workers for facilities being built closer to where customers have products delivered.
