For Lisa, a Process Assistant at Melbourne’s Dandenong South fulfilment centre what started as a casual job in 2019, has led to a career at Amazon Australia. Lisa now manages a team of associates in the outbound ‘Pack’ area, supporting them as they pack orders to be shipped to customers.
“When I first started working at an Amazon fulfilment centre, I thought that it was just going to be a short ‘seasonal job', but I enjoyed it so much that when I was offered full-time employment I couldn’t say no! I love the role as I enjoy conversing with my team members, solving problems and knowing that at the end of the day I will make a lot of customers happy as they receive their orders promptly.”
“The people who I work with are like my second family… we are always laughing and having a good time while still making sure we get our work done. I feel like we have such a good balance, when it’s time to work we are all on the same page and just get it done. But equally, when it’s time to chill out, we can crack a joke with each other and have a laugh. It makes work a great place to be.”
Lisa added, “With my future here, I feel like I have so many opportunities. I have been trained in many areas of the business and have had the opportunity to provide input into the design of our new pack stations.”
Amazon is planning to onboard around 1,000 seasonal workers this festive season, with jobs available at its fulfilment centres and Amazon Logistics sites across the country. It’s looking for people with a range of experience and skill levels to help pick, pack and ship orders over the festive season.
These are new seasonal job opportunities that provide extra income during the holiday season, offering Australians the opportunity to earn competitive pay in a safe and supportive work environment. For some, it’s a short-term opportunity. For others, seasonal opportunities can present a path to employment with - and a longer-term career at - Amazon.
Amanda Hadaway started her Amazon journey with a seasonal position at Amazon’s Brisbane fulfilment centre packing customer orders. She was offered a permanent role and promoted and is now a Process Assistant.
Amanda said she joined Amazon for the growth opportunities, and encourages those looking for work in the lead up to Christmas to apply.
“The potential for growth is so big and it’s a great environment which makes the time fly. It is enjoyable, and also really rewarding to know customers are getting their orders on time.”
