Live in Georgia? Need a job? Stay at home and work for Amazon


Folks that live in the Peach State who are looking for a part-time job won’t have to leave home to find one.

All you need is a decent computer, a high school diploma, fluency in English and typing skills.

Amazon announced on Thursday that it is creating 5,000 new part-time work-from-home jobs over the next year. The hiring initiative is geared towards boosting Amazon’s Virtual Customer Service Program, which gives employees the flexibility to provide customer service support to Amazon customers while working from home.

Part-time employees working 20 hours a week or more receive benefits, including the company’s innovative Career Choice program that pre-pays 95-percent of tuition for courses in high-demand fields, regardless of relevancy to Amazon.

“There are lots of people who want or need a flexible job — whether they’re a military spouse, a college student or a parent — and we’re happy to empower these talented people no matter where they happen to live,” said Tom Weiland, Amazon’s vice president for worldwide customer service.

However, the jobs are currently only available to those who live in a specific list of states. Don’t worry Georgia residents, the Peach State is one of them, as is South Carolina and Florida.

The job pays $10 per hour and requires employees to work a minimum of 15 hours per week. Training for the job is paid and fully self-directed.
